The Scion XA is a fun, reliable car with great fuel economy and versatility (i.e. transporting five passengers or putting the seats down and taking dogs and gear to the beach.) Great for long trips, always comfortable, and always good for drawing just the right amount of attention from passersby. "What kind of car is that?" I've never seen one before. It has also really retained it's value very well, despite the high mileage I put on it! Well done, Scion XA (aka MiniCooper on steroids)!
It would be great if they made a hybrid hatchback that got even better gas mileage, yet offered the versatility of convertible seats.
