Junkster, who likes the look of the xB.
i wouldnt mind driving an echo hatch, i've thought about one as a winter beater or daily driver and get a weekend car instead..those things are pretty cheap in canada.... add a tubo and that thing will fly...i like the looks of the xb as well.

This is one where I'm with Gilbo. I love the Echo..... OK, I like the Echo. I don't understand that it doesn't get more respect. I see it as a solid, reliable, practical car with quite a bit of character. And, in its way, a lot of fun.

T-Sport Is White Hot - - Source: AutoExpress

Exclusive spy images in this week's magazine reveal Toyota putting the finishing touches to an even more powerful version of its Corolla T Sport. The newcomer differs from the existing range-topper thanks to a deeper front spoiler, bigger airdam, distinctive twin tailpipes and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Expected to debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, the hotter T Sport will be powered by a 225bhp engine. The Toyota will go head-to-head with the new VW Golf GTI and forthcoming Vauxhall Astra VXR when it hits showrooms around September.

Its introduction also sees the debut of a five-door T Sport - previously, the car was available only as a three-door. This move is in response to other makers' more practical hot hatches, in particular the Golf. The newcomer will be sold alongside the existing £15,995 190bhp variant. However, the added performance will cost extra, with prices of around £17,500 for the three-door or £18,000 for the five-door model.

Talking about the Matrix, I am pretty sure that there is a dealer-installed option of a Supercharger for it as well, but only for the base 1.8 liter engine (makes 140 out of the box). If I remember correctly it makes a lot less HP than this TS Sport. 175 supercharged HP comes to mind.

This may not be the picture of a Matrix. I believe it is the echo hatchback if I am not wrong.

Next Gen. Toyota Corolla News **Edmunds First Drive**

Next Corolla Is Shaping Up - - By Dan Strong - - Source: Autoexpress

The world's best-selling car is about to be reborn! Toyota's all-new Corolla is out on test ready for a 2006 launch, and this week's mag's pictures reveal how the design is an evolution of the current machine.

However, sources in Japan have told us the rear end is inspired by the home market-only family model, named 'Ist'. Three and five-door prototypes with disguised bodywork are lapping Germany's Nürburgring circuit, with engineers refining the suspension settings on the new platform underpinning the car.

Sitting on Toyota's recently developed 300N/MC chassis, the Corolla will also provide the basis for nine fresh models from the firm, including the next RAV4, Avensis and Previa. Insiders say the new design makes the 300N/MC the most versatile vehicle platform in the world

An equally ambitious engine range is also being developed. Although a hybrid system based on the Prius isn't likely, there will be new direct-injection petrol motors and a selection of fresh diesels. Two oil-burning flagships will debut in 2007, both based around the acclaimed 2.2-litre turbo. Buyers will get the choice of 148bhp or 175bhp, and the units will appear in the revised Avensis line-up as well. Power will be fed to the road via five or six-speed manual gearboxes, with a CVT semi-automatic also on offer.

A facelifted Corolla Verso is under development, too, but as the current car only recently hit the road, this won't appear until at least 2009. A concept hinting at the hatchback is expected at October's Tokyo Motor Show, although there's no word on prices yet.

Both the Civic and Corolla are coming out with Direct Injection engines (in the Civics case, an R18 engine)

I was going to mention the European Verso - it looks nothing like any other Corolla.

That's a pretty wide range of cars - the Avensis is a mainstream mid sized (for Europe) sedan. While the Corola hatch is pretty small and the RAV4 is somewhere in between.

Direct injection, for both gas and diesel, is standard fare in most cars in Europe.

Toyota and Honda 2.2L diesels are the ones liekly to make it to the US.

While the 07 Camry will come as a hybrid, a Camry with this 2.2 diesel would be chaper both for consumers and Toyota. A 177HP diesel I4 Camry that gets 40MPG+ is nothing to sneeze at - now if they could just do something about the bland look and drive.

This is probably the successor to the Euro-spec Corolla which is very different than ours.

The Corolla in Europe has nothing to do with the pedestrian fare offered in the US.

While you are the person on earth I'd want to agree with, I too share this sentiment.

BUT. The civic has been a snoozebax since 2001....and look what rabbit they just yanked out there ass. So, things can change.

TOYOTA LAUNCHES HOTTER COROLLA

Supercharged VVTL engine boosts torque, driveability

Toyota has launched a hotter Corolla, one that it describes as "faster, more powerful and has better handling and more street presence than ever before".

We'll take the street presence claim with a pinch of salt (as with all such claims), but the company has beefed up the car by adding a supercharger to its high-revving VVTL-i engine, the same zingy mill that sits in the Lotus Elise.

While in the Lotus, the motor has under 1,000Kg to shove, but the Toyota Corolla 1.8 VVTL-i Sport is a chunkier kettle of fish at 1,255Kg. So keeping the Corolla moving quickly means remaining in the 6,000-8,000rpm powerband. Not always ideal and eventually tiring. It also makes for lethargic performance when the engine's working outside that powerband.

The new Corolla Compressor uses the same 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine as the Sport but the supercharger boosts output from 189bhp to 215bhp. That helps knock 1.5 seconds off the car’s 0-62mph acceleration time, down to 6.9 seconds, and adds 3mph to the top speed, now 143mph.

With extra torque at lower engine speeds – a maximum 159lb-ft at 4,000rpm – the Compressor is more flexible. Toyota claimed fifth gear acceleration from 50 to 75mph in 8.5 seconds, while 37 to 62mph in fourth took only 6.1 seconds.

To accompany the power hike, the Compressor is fettled with 15mm lowered sports suspension and uprated springs. It also gets 17-inch alloy wheels with 215/45 tyres plus a roof spoiler, rear air dam and sports exhaust with twin tailpipes.

Toyota has also added adjustments to meet Euro IV emissions standards.

Only 250 right-hand drive Corolla Compressor models are being made available in the UK. The model goes on sale on 1 November 2006, priced on-the-road at £19,995.

Wow, a 5-door, 6-speed MT Corolla with a 175 HP turbodiesel getting 40+ MPG could well be the perfect 'daily driver'.

Exactly, that's the European Corolla which I have said has nothing to do with the US Corolla. They just pumped up the drivetrain.
