Is the Onyx an "official" Toyota package, or is it just something thrown together by a regional distributor? There's no mention of it on Toyota.com, so I'm thinking the latter.

I just took delivery of my 2009 Yaris S hatchback, for the money I would still keep mine over the Onyx. The interior of the Onyx is not appealing, In my opinion they should have takend and S hatchback and added the onyx stuff to it.

Sure, anyone car crap up (sorry) any kind of car and add stuff for less than the add-ons on the Onyx. But, you totally miss the point. This is a limited edition - 1 of 200 vehicle. Built by (sanctioned by) Toyota. Taking anything off it, or adding 'stuff' like the tint bar on the windshield would detract from the authenticity and value of the car.

They take the base car with minimum extras and upgrade that one to keep the selling price reasonable. If they added to the 'S' car the selling price would be well over 20k. A pretty hard Yaris to sell I would think.

As in anything in life, some people will like the looks and some wont. Personally, I am smitten. Buying number 198 today.

As for making it faster . . . why? I traded my Corvette in. Speed is definately fun, but you have to pay the piper. Higher insurance, tickets, tire replacement, repairs, gas mileage. Everything costs more.

This car (the Onyx) will hold its value only if left just the way Toyota made it. The VIN will prove authenticity, plus the numbered key chain would be a plus - unless you added all the extras and got it done just right then, counterfited the key chain and altered the VIN you would still just have a regular Yaris dolled up.

No matter which Yaris you get, it will never be one of two-hundred, like this one is. A rare buy indeed.

I would agree with, if only Onyx spec actually meant something different in performance. Like perhaps a TRD turbocharger, or TRD muffler, or something else. Like the Mugen Civic RR, or R34 GT-R Z-tune. Those are actually sought-after limited run cars.

Yes, it is a rare car, but unfortunately it drives just like a base automatic would, and is slower because of the larger rims. In order to keep it unique, you can't mod it otherwise it'd lose its unique-ness (this I agree). And the Yaris is crying out to be properly modded - lowered, its I/H/E done up, and it'd be punching above its weight. Otherwise, Onyx badge or not, it'll drive like any other Yaris out there.

THE ONYX










ABOUT
The Yaris ONYX, also known as the Toyota Yaris ONYX or simply the ONYX, is a limited run liftback. As of December 2008, there were plans to make only 200 such vehicles.
The ONYX, which is essentially a Yaris with exclusive Toyota accessories, is available only in black, and only as a 3-door liftback. Its availability will be limited to the Southeastern United States (specifically states North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Florida) and is available only through Toyota dealers.
The name “ONYX” refers to its dark color. ONYX stone is typically of a dark, black hue.

SIGHTINGS
On-location photos of the Yaris ONYX were taken in Southern Georgia, and the photos accompanying this entry are believed to be the only ones wherein the exterior of the ONYX isn’t hidden. Additional sightings were reported outside the port near Jacksonville, FL.

FEATURES
In addition to the black finish, the Yaris ONYX features a variety of ONYX-only features. These include:
- Bongiovi radio with iPod interface
- Enkei 17” wheels in dark chrome
- Carbon fiber dash-trim
- Window tint
- Stainless steel exhaust tip
- Euro rear spoiler
- Window tint
- Custom badging
- Bluetooth capacity
- Limited edition numbered key chain

This was one of two that they got and they got them yesterday, already sold one. It was retailing for about $16k with a $500 rebate....

It was very Nice.....
I wish I had 16k...
In addition to your list, it also has custom floor mats, fender stripes, lighted Onyx door sills, upgrade tires to fit the 17" wheels and the rebate here was $1,000. All in all, not a bad buy for $15,770.

The key (I think) to this car being of value to the customer is to keep it exactly as Toyota made it. Modifications beyond what is already done will detract from any possible future resale value.

My son bought a Smart Car and immediately re-sold it on Craig's list - for more than his purchase price. I am not thinking about selling mine (14 miles on it) but I bet I could and get more than I paid, like he did with that Smart. There aren't very many vehicles you can do that with.

I really wonder about the value as a limited edition, as it really isn't a Toyota created limited edition, it's a regional distributor created limited edition.
