    Because they are practical? Isn't the domestic nazi slogan, "Function over form?" The Scion xB gets great gas mileage, has enough power to be a decent daily driver, and is suprisingly very roomy on the inside.

    they are 12-13K for a new one, + I guess ppl like to be the center of attention, even if its ugly u'll look to see what it is. + lots of space and are roomy

    Practical? Since when do practical cars come lowered from the factory, with interior neons that change color at a touch?

    :confused: You've got to be pretty damn self-secure to be willing to be seen in public in that box, imo.

    God I hope you're a girl.

    And since when is "boxy" a good thing? A stiff crosswind and that thing'll blow over.

    I can see the appeal in them... not everybody is looking to own a race car.

    I don't get why people make fun of FWD, low power, hatchback styling, etc., but when this thing comes out they're all like "Dayum yo, it's madd tizzite!!1"
