With a sleekly sloping roofline, the xA four-door subcompact hatchback continues for 2006 with a minor makeover that includes new upper and lower front grilles, a redesigned front bumper, color-keyed rocker panels and rear bumper, new headlamps and taillamps, and side mirrors with integrated turn signals. Inside, there's revised seat fabric, the center-mounted speedometer is graced with a silver background, and a new steering wheel features integrated audio controls. Power comes from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that employs Toyota's Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) system, and generates 108-horsepower. A five-speed manual transmission comes standard and a four-speed automatic is optional. Standard equipment is generous for a car in its price range; for 2006, the standard AM/FM/CD stereo is revised and the optional Pioneer premium system offers an optional iPod adapter, offering music navigation, power and display through the head unit. Though side-impact airbags are the only available factory option, no less than 40 dealer-installed accessories - from custom wheels to various trim items - are available for buyers to customize the xA to their own specific tastes. Phantom Gray Pearl and Black Cherry Pearl are added to the color palette for 2006.

High fashion and high value, in half a parking space.

I have been very happy with this vehicle. Very reliable but not the car for performance. Good gas mileage and low maintenance are the big pluses.
