I know what you mean. The old Copen has a cuteness, thanks to it's rounded shapes and bug eye headlights, which here in Europe is even aided by it's size (even between EUro cars, it looks half the size of a regular car). As an owner of a first series model (which were RHD in LHD Europe, this adds to the head turner qualities, plus when I get out of it - being 1,9m or 6ft2" tall) I appreciate that they keep making these models (How many small coupes and convertibles are left? The Miata, this, well, that's it), but I agree it looks skinnier and higher, which is not good for a sporty model.
But if it drives like the old one, I agree it will be fun. It's so small that it feels fast and fun even within speed limits....
