The Akino was a design concept, as its engine was not tested. The Akino was designed as a modern and still artistic design for a subcompact car. It only has one door on the driver's side and two doors on the passenger's side although it has 1 suicide door. Inside, it has 4 seats and a trunk that opens upwards like most hatchbacks. The passenger doors open up in opposite directions , much like the Honda Element. The roof also features an interlocking form which could give out more headroom. If produced, the Chrysler Akino is a front-wheel-drive subcompact car and it will be a 5-door hatchback with conventional rear doors and it is produced in mid-January 2018 and it is related to the Lancia Ypsilon and the Chrysler Ypslion.
