Kalispel, that's great information!

It looks like Toyota Yaris, Prius, Corolla, Camry, Sienna, Tacoma.

That website is a fantastic resource, especially when looking at models ten years old and more. One of the reasons I have a Yaris now is that their top four subcompacts are all basically the Yaris.

Actually, nice looking cars; refined, conservative, and classy. They look expensive. I used to say that about Lexus, but not anymore.

I think that's more Dubai-like styling than North America market. Still I think Lexus has the edge over Acura and Infinity as a big manufacturer premium brand. They do put a lot of thoughts into their design to make it highly functional.

I remember many years ago when they introduced the IS F sport sedan, I was thrilled to spend time in the driver seat at the Montreal Auto Show that year, despite being too young to have a license yet :)

It's a Barfmobile. Right up there at the top of the fugly rankings, along with the Nissan Juke, the BMW i3, the Infinity QX90 and the Fiat Multipla. Sometimes I wonder what some car designers are smoking....

I've been to Dubai several times with my work. That place is so messed up, if you were to gold-plate a turd and put a big price tag on it, the locals would flock to buy it.

Out of curiosity, is the gas more expensive in Dubai than in North America ? As in about $2-$3/G USD or $1,20/L CAD ?

I recall it was way cheaper, although I wasn't driving or paying for the gas when I was over there.

I wouldn't be surprised to see dealership include free gas for as long as you own the car when you buy it new from them, considering how much money everybody has over there, I don't see them winning more customer then the guy next door just by offering rebate on oil change xD

Has Kia and Hyundai caught up with Mazda, VW and Toyota? The small car segment i30 will be a monster hit.

Not a fan of the i30 styling, overall, especially from the front and sides. Plus, the Hyundai logo looks like a wannabe, rip-off Honda logo. I would choose a Toyota iM, Yaris SE or Mazda3 (sedan or hatch) over the i30 every time.

Personally I'm not keen on the styling of most Hyuandais. They look plasticy IMO, and have too many curves, groves and lines to be able to look elegant. Totally agree about tie logo as well.

Some Kias look a bit better IMO, except for the black and horribly plastic-looking radiator grill.

I agree with your comments about the styling of the new i30.

Currently, the Mazda3 or Mazda CX-3 are the only cars I would consider if I left Toyota... which is highly unlikely.
