The car is powered by a small petrol engine.

The Issi is powered by an inline-4, boosted by a supercharger (made apparent by the sound of a supercharged whine), similarly to the [[wp:Mini Hatch|2005 Mini Cooper S]] on which this quirky supermini is based.

Though the engine isn't exactly the mightiest of powerhouses (the car is defeated by any form of upwards gradient), the lightweight results in a rather nippy, chuckable little car that will corner superbly (if occasionally, oversteering around low-speed corners) and delivers a European hot hatch grade performance.

Such handling characteristics that come with a short-wheelbased FF hatchback are complimented by rather potent brakes, and when performance driving this can make even an exotic coupé feel like a bus in comparison.

Its downside, however, are spin-outs due to the Issi's somewhat sensitive steering, especially at high speeds, as well as its weak resistance against high-speed collisions, often resulting its wheels to bend and greatly affecting its handling. The handling and its top speed is the most superior in its class beating the [[Panto]] and [[Blista]], although this is not always entirely the case. The acceleration is dominated by its competitor, the [[Panto]].

Unfortunately, the Issi suffers from poor durability and crash deformation, and 2-4 head-on collisions may render the engine useless or one of the axles bent. In addition, body panels (such as fenders, quarter panels, and bumpers) tend to detach quite easily during collisions and rollovers.

"A favorite in Mirror Park, this sporty little guy is easy to park. Great handling, anti-lock breaks, and a stereo that only plays power pop hits. Ironically. Go team!"
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Weeny Issi is a two-door soft-top convertible in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design Edit

The design of this car is German in nature and is significantly inspired by the styling of the 2001-2007 Mini Cooper Convertible. Its headlamps, however, resemble those of a Porsche 911 (996). The front fascia resembles that of the Fiat 500, albeit with a different grille design. The tailights are adopted from the Mini Clubman, but also strongly resemble those of a Smart Fortwo, a car known for its tiny size. The front hood may or may not have a stripe. The front fog lamps are also daytime running lamps. Like many other vehicles in the game, the Issi does not have reversing lights.

The Weeny Issi is one of the smallest civilian cars, with a narrow body, compact wheelbase, short length, and low height, making it very agile and able to fit through tiny spaces.
