- '10 Toyota Matrix XR
I was mostly responding to Canuck and his Texas in Europe image, since it's pretty well completely irrelevant to what's popular, from a car perspective. And it's really more complicated than running costs, since as I said, trucks fly off the lots here, just like they do south of the border. It's the cars, and crossover thingies, that skew smaller.I think you misunderstood my point. I never said that lots of space will automatically equal larger cars. I was simply pointing out to narf that size of cars is a composite of the running costs (insurance/fuel mostly in this case) and space (wider roads, more parking, etc..). If you had to live in Athens and A8s would cost $20K you still wouldn't want to buy it because that place has SUPER narrow roads and no parking whatsoever. If you lived in the middle of nowhere somewhere in TX but something the size of a Camry would cost you $50K you would still go for a smaller car.
