I was looking for a small car that got great gas milage but not at the cost of a hybrid. I bought the Scion xA based on Edmunds.com's review. I'm so happy I did. The car has actually outperformed my original expectations. It seats 5 people quite comfortably and the ride is surprisingly smooth for such a small car. The car is about 8 months now and I have had zero problems with it so far. I love it.
All the little extras built in as standard features that cost extra on other vehicles including Toyota brand vehicles.
