I wasn't aware that Toyota made the Yaris in sadan form. Regardless, it would be the Yaris I'd go for.

They are too different cars over here, although I believe that the Aygo is the replacement for the Yaris.

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

I might seriously consider the Fiat with those choices. I like the feel of the older Toyotas (talking european) such as mid 90's Celicas and stuff, but the newer stuff is detached. All the Fiats I have driven feel like drivers cars... The older models (and possibly the newer ones) though do pull timing or something when you are trying to downshift. A modern Honda civic does the same, I am not sure if that is to aid in saving trannies or what, but it is a pretty big minus as far as driveability goes if you drive in conditions that require heel toeing even occaisonally. So drive it first, go from an on accelerator and a cruising throttle position and downshift, if the revs don't come out with out flooring it I wouldn't bother personally.

Yeh maybe. I drive the American stuff for 10.5 months of the year and 1.5 months I drive Italian stuff. I find the Fiat gutless like a Honda, but it is funny feeling the horsepower come on after 4,000rpm of nothing. There is much better feedback in the Marea in my past experiences than with a USDM Civic. Also everything in a Fiat feels so light and boosted, not sure if I like that, but it is different.
