One car that fits every need

Please take a moment to think about the perfect car. What would it look like and what features would it have? Probably, your perfect car would be spacious, fast, exciting and luxurious, but at the same time it should be compact, economical and lightweight. Of course, it is impossible to build a car that combines all these features. Or is it?
