The Pixis Space is offered in two trim levels L and X, plus the sporty looking derivatives called Custom X, Custom G and Custom RS.

The power comes from a naturally aspirated 660cc gasoline engine that’s mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Pixis also brings either front- or all-wheel drive.

On the Japanese market, the Pixis Space is priced from JPY1.12 million ($14,700), though it can go all the way up to JPY1.611 million ($21,145).
