Driven both, Corolla has better seats, power is about the same 138hp vs 109hp but then the 138 weighs 600 more, Corollas are pulling in around 35-40mpg just like the Yaris because of Toyotas new VVT-i2 motor

If you need space get a Corolla, otherwise I say the Yaris just because I couldn't stand the way the Corolla felt.

I snicker at those Corolla's and Yaris's. My 4 banger Fusion can get 39 mpg with the 87 octane jusnes tune, and I can ride in style.

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.

Re: Help me choose! What would you buy?

Get a 3-door Yaris (maybe used? ...gotta be cheap). Throw some light weight 14-inch rims, sticky tires, and stiffer springs and the thing will probably hold the road better than the MS3. It won't be fast in a line, but it could be a fun commuter!

Corolla is fugly.

Corolla. Those 3-door Yaris's look like suppositories.
