Enthusiasts with long memories will recall the AMC Hornet from the 1970's. Dodge has applied the Hornet name to a new subcompact concept, scheduled to be officially unveiled at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. With bold styling, the Hornet stands out from its innocuously styled B-segment competition. Hornet is powered by a supercharged 1.6L inline-4 with 170-bhp and 165 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual. Huge 19-inch alloy wheels are designed to show off its brake rotors and calipers. Inside the Hornet are removable modular bins that hold a first-aid kit, and other essential accessories. Rear seats flip back and stow flush against the liftgate for additional cargo room. The dashboard can accommodate right-hand or left-hand drive, so Dodge could market the Hornet worldwide.
