What's Aung San Suu Kyi's ride?

She arrived at Parliament today in that black sedan.  What is it?

I concur on Crown.

@Viva and m4: I think you guys are right. The good thing about sanctions ending in Burma is that they'll finally have new cars (I read that an old 1970s Corolla costs like $50,000 or something insane). But the bad part is, what's going to happen to all those old Japanese cars?

As long as the Burmese majoreity remains poor, but better off, I imagine these old cars will be part of a new used-car market for the working classes. I don't think they will die yet.

Have you seen Burma's cute little Mazda taxis? All in blue. I've been thinking about writing about them for a long long time.

Crown Majesta to be precise. Says here it's supposed to be the modern alternative to the Century. As if.
