Oh wow, I didn't know they were doing this, I might have to check this out. If only it had the ground clearance then I think it would be a real contender for my $. Though as is I'll keep an eye on it.....http://www.scion.com/concept_cars/iM/#category=exterior&image=Profile&view=I always like the 1st Generation Vibe and Matrix. I always wished their MPG was better. I think they are going to rerelease them as a Scion.
I believe the bad restyle is partly what killed the Vibe /Matrix.I love my Vibe. I average between 31-33 MPG, and I drive pretty fast. The reason I'm looking at the HRV is because my Vibe has 180k miles on it and the Gen 2 Vibes / Matrices are lower, uglier, and get worse gas mileage.
haha the only reason I bought my vibe is because it is the Matrix with an american body, and the matrix is really the mechanical parts of the Corolla so I knew it would be reliable. I avoid "older" american cars at all costs otherwiseI just want to avoid anything by Pontiac. That brand leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Because they're very similar in design, size, purpose, and specs.I just want to avoid anything by Pontiac. That brand leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
The HRV does tend to look similar to other CUVs out there though. It isn't like it is doing anything revolutionary as far as design goes.
The MPG of the '08 Vibe isn't very good either. Not exactly sure why we are comparing these vehicles.
