    I'd actually prefer if car makers offered trim levels like the Pastport. My new Mazda doesn't have a place for me to play my Rick Astley cassette...

    Ford UK did - don't know if it still does - have a pickup Fiesta which it used for tracking shots on launches and events. But still, that Yaris is brilliant.

    I hope someone makes an aftermarket Jeep front fascia that you can bolt on to the 300.

    Also, I love the Yaris truck.

    The Yaris Adventure render reminds me of the Publica Truck thing that I saw once:

    Though the Publica looks better.

    That Yaris Ute and Jeep saloon are all kinds of awesome.

    As stupid as it might look, I was actually really pleased to see that Jeep sedan. It would take a lot of courage for a manufacturer like Chrysler to come up with a new sedan, even if it's based on an existing model. We are drowning in pointless "SUV's" and Crossovers...

    Give it a month or two, someone will make that Jeep one an actual kit...I really kinda want one now. Call it a Jeep Eagle or something.

    Just waiting on the Land Rover sport coupe now.

    I mean...i know that jeep sedan is just a 300 with a jeep front end, and you can call it blasphemy, but... I mean....yeah i would buy it.

    Course i think the eagle 4x4 wagon was one of the coolest cars made, especially buy amc. And this is from someone who loves the amx and had a amc 1983 cherokee chief.

    The Jeep Sedan needs to be more than just a Jeep front end on a 300. It also needs the "jerry can" taillights in the back. It needs to be lifted with 4WD and it needs to be able to navigate the Rubicon Trail. Then it will be a Jeep.

    Yeah, they could have easily given that Jeep photoshop a slight lift, all terrain tires, and Audi All-Road style fender flares. That one was just lazy.

    Lol, you gotta love online translations

    What you effectively wrote there was "Completely covered in make-up", which looking at the care could also be true.

    Ahem, @Famine...

    Volkswagen Saveiro. Based on the VW A0 platform, so it's definitely B-segment :D

    According to Toyota USA for the US market :D

    You must have seen Ford's Mk6 Fiesta and Mk2 Focus ST tracking cars too. They're excellent.

    I've seen the Focus but don't think I've seen the Fiesta yet.

    Is it bad that I now want a hatchback-based ute with a 90s interior?
