Well, excuse you!
Yeah, you’ve mentioned that font thing I think in my post from last year lol. It’s a pretty dramatic difference, the font.
Didn’t realize this was photoshopped. I kinda like the original better because this front end reminds me too much of the 370Z.
“All of Toyota’s designs (excepting maybe their trucks) are waaayyyy too overworked to the point of basically being parody automobiles.”
Good riddence! I rode in one of these from the airport on the way to the town where the Taj Mahal is and on the expressway the driver had to drop to 80 km/h or so almost every time there was one of those bridge transitions in the road, otherwise the thing would lurch so bad.

What did you end up with (if you bought a car)?
I just ordered a custom front plate for mine with my tag number. That looks legit. Golf was definitlely a second choice for me.
Lol guilty. I used customeuropeanplates.com and picked the “old style” Euro plate which I *erroneously* assumed the UK still uses for the front.
There has been a Twingo around Chicago for the past 9 years apparently and it still gets spotted on our largest Chicagoland facebook car spotting group. Not sure on the back story, but I presume it was a former diplomat car. The night shots were from Jan 2017.
My Civic hatch wants to participate too
Yeah I thought TDIs typically get MPGs in the 30s around town..
Already enjoying diesel-like highway fuel economy in my ‘17 Civic LX 1.5T CVT hatch. Couldn’t be more satisifed for a daily honestly, besides maybe the rarer manual. From 75-78 mph, I can maintain 40 mpg in warm weather road trips. Slower than that, even more.
My Civic LX 1.5T hatch would like a word (country highway)
My Eastern European neghbor’s 80s manual diesel Jetta that gets driven daily 24/7 all year round. It really seems to hold up in the land of road salt.
This is the golden age of poseur 4x4 and pickup truck culture. This is what happens when gas is cheap.
Don’t encourage them!
Not to mention the sedan’s shorter wheelbase and (I think) smaller wheels and tires. I know which body style I would rather have on the Interstate.
Didn’t Americans buy Fiestas mostly as a response to high gas prices several years ago? Now gas is relatively cheaper, so it makes sense they aren’t buying as much.
THIS is why I still read Jalopnik.
