This wasn't "the same topic" as before I thought, as I was trying to make it easy to find the actual information directly from a Toyota publication, and a short while later I uploaded the scans of the publication.

The topic you linked to was on the main page still, and I saw it, but this wasn't meant as a part of the discussion of the 2008 model changes. It was meant as a point-of-reference providing Toyota documentation scans for the changes, since the other topic was over-crowded with speculation, ideas, hopes, and the general detritus of any long-winded textual discussion dating back almost three months at this point.

Seems like the Liftback-S is basically the RS model from Canada. Shame you folks in the US still can't get the 5-dr liftback.

i personally don't care about the 5-dr liftback. i like watching ppl trying to get in and out of my car and struggling to figure out how to put the seat back sometimes hehe.

Yeah... we're getting the Scion xD instead. Way more engine, way higher price by comparison, no thanks.

I'm guessing the 2008s won't show up for a few more months (September?), but I was hoping some info was out there regarding some prospective changes.
Why do I see many saying they hope the Yaris comes with a tach? When I bought minen a few weeks ago there were 6 hatches on the lot... they all had a tach. Is this a striped down version dealers are ordering??

Nope, that'd be the 2008 Yaris Liftback S-models. They ALL come with a Tach, only way to do so supposedly.

It is, bar-none, the MOST requested 'oversight' in the manual-transmission 2007 Yaris Liftbacks, according to all three Toyota dealerships I talked to when looking for my Yaris. So I wouldn't be surprised at all for the dealerships to snap up any S-model Liftbacks they can. :-)

No, just the stripped down version the U.S. gets. You Canucks get the extras because we have the Scion lineup (which in my opinion has strayed from it's strength....bringing jdm cars to our shores).

Did any of you notice that the 08 LB has a top mileage of 36MPG now instead of 40MPG. Just bought a new 07LB 5sp, PP, All Weather, Convience, in black today and 08 brocures were sitting there. Swiped it up. Noticed that right away. Any thoughts on that one. Anything changed or are they trying to reflect actual. Thoughts?????

NO 08's on the lot in the Twin Cities, at least at Maplewood Toyota.

Probably just the revised EPA standard.

i'm confused...you wrote that the s liftback gets front/side/rear lip spoilers standard but the brochure says it's an option....and is there anyway to have that illumination not be orange?

First, edit your post and remove my massive one in quotes i you could?

Second, left-hand page, right-hand column, very top entry:

Color-keyed front and rear under-bumper spoilers, side rocket panels and unique S badge: - S - S

That means N/A on non-S models, standard on S models. I'm not talking about the rear-top 'wing position' spoiler, I'm saying the 'bottom edge of the car' stuff. I always heard them called 'lip spoilers' at the auto-shops around here, compared to 'roof' or 'trunk' spoilers. Sure, you could have a 'lip style trunk' spoiler (what a Porsche 944 has for example) but a set of 'lip spoilers' basically meant lower-edge body-trim to be installed on a car, and that leaked through to my list, sorry about that.

i hope that body kit isn't as close to the ground as it looks, i hate the idea of having to maneuver around speed bumps to keep it from hitting

I also have another car in the garage that is being neglected because of the Yaris LB that we purchased a month ago. It is a 2004 GT PT Cruiser. It is so horrible on gas that I dislike taking it out much anymore. It is a very nice car and I have added a lot of chrome to it, but it is hard to take it out when it takes a quarter tank of gas just to go to and from town. I am loving the Yaris more and more each day.
