Alain de Leon's a longtime reader of TheCarConnection.com. Imagine his good luck at Carl's Jr., in scenic Barstow, when instead of his usual double cheeseburger, he spotted this mystery vehicle parked nearby.
His first take: The car's a new Kia Rio. "I think it's a Rio just by the shape, but maybe I'm wrong." Our first guess is a member of the Hyundai/Kia family as well--but possibly, a new Toyota midi-van that's been rumored for the United States.
The Chrysler PT Cruiser sitting alongside it is a good indicator of size. The Michigan manufacturer's plate could tell all, and we're trying to run it down.
