I know what the sales figures say. I understand that practicality drives the sales of sedans.
But I just don't like four-door body styles; nothing will change my mind on that.
The Scion tC is a nice-looking car. Fuel economy is mediocre on that one, though.
I also think that the Camry Solara is beautifully styled.

What's wrong with that? What else do you buy a car for?

4 DOORS ARE THE WAY TO GO! Unless you are under 25 and single!

Yes, but 5 doors are even better!

if Toyota has plans to make a wagon style Yaris? It would be a nice addition and would bring new customers. Toyota offered a wagon syle for the Tercel years ago. Anyone know of any plans?

Have you looked at the Scion xD?

looked at the xD on Edmunds but not close up. It looks pretty nice but I noticed that the off set crash test received an acceptable compared to the Yaris's good rating. I wish that Toyota would offer more of a selection in their models.
#19 of 21 Fun Yaris "S" 2 door hatchback
Dec 29, 2007 (12:24 pm)
I'm 6'3" and very happy with my 2008 Yaris "S" 2door Hatchback. As a die hard auto enthusiast, I chose this as my city car, only to find that it's so much fun to drive and so peppy that I also enjoy freeway driving. Made in Japan, the quality is excellent. I got the power package and auto trans, which is the only item I had to settle on. Would prefer a 5 speed manual but there was not one in the entire state of CA and I needed the car right away. That said, the auto has a gated shifter and may be shifted manually if you wish. It's really smooth and takes very little away from performance.
Mine is the Sport Model, hence the "S" designation. the alloy wheels, rear spoiler, aero body kit and sport seats, this is one sporty car. While not as fast as my 2005 Mini Cooper S, the Yaris makes up by getting over 10mpg more in the city and highway , city driving yields 39 and a mix of freeway and city equals 44mpg. And it was half the price! Compared to the Mini it's far more comfortable, with much more usable space with the rear seats folded down. A Great Car!

I'm an auto enthusiast too and I also got the auto. The gated shifter is more fun than I thought. It's more fun than the Fit's paddle shifter because I just like the mechanical click click. The Fit's paddles felt like little, numb buttons. I was hoping they'd feel more like the paddles on a sports car. Too much to ask I guess.

If you want a "family car" get the 4-door, otherwise hatchback is cooler!
