The Custom Compact is one of the first vehicles unlocked the game. At a first glance, it appears to perform identically to its stock cousin, the Compact Type 1, but there is more to the car. Apart from a new spoiler, change of wheels and a deluxe paint finish, the Custom Compact has improved traction and drifting abilities. The finished package isn't special but it is unlocked very early and handles more comfortably than its original counterpart.
It's available in Red/White, Blue/White, and Navy/White paint schemes.
The Custom Compact bears resemblance to the fifth generation Honda Civic Si and also happens to resemble the 2006 Mazda Speed 3, however this car was made much later after the game was released. The rear is similar to the first generation Volkswagen Fox. The front fascia also resembles that of a Mitsubishi Colt.
