Power-to-Weight Ratios of Yaris, Fit, Mini, etc.

Already posted this in the Fit thread, but thought others might find it interesting. The Yaris might be low hp, but with a bit of tweaking it can be a heck of a fun car regardless.

Code:
Car            |	Curb	|	HP 	|	lb. per HP
____________________________________________________________
Golf           |	2,857	|	115	|	24.8
Fit            |	2,432	|	109	|	22.3
Mini           |	2,524	|	115	|	21.9
Yaris LB       |	2,293	|	106	|	21.6
Yaris Sedan    |	2,293	|	106	|	21.6
Focus          |	2,627	|	136	|	19.3
Yaris Stripped |	2,037	|	106	|	19.2
Civic          |	2,593	|	140	|	18.5
Yaris SC       |	2,087	|	130	|	16.0
Mini S         |	2,679	|	168	|	15.9
Miata          |	2,474	|	170	|	14.5
WRX Wagon      |	3,252	|	230	|	14.1
Elise          |	1,984	|	190	|	10.4
The "Yaris Stripped" is with the backseats taken out, race seats and lighter wheels (using the 4 lbs per wheel pound lost calculation for unsprung weight).

The "Yaris SC" is Yaris Stripped w/Supercharger, assuming a conservative 20% power incrase.

Wait, the Yaris lift back and the Yaris sedan can't possibly weigh the exact same amount... the sedan is bigger, and has more doors.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if that information is wrong, but that's what Toyota's specs say. One of these days I'm going to go weigh my car.
