As you can see it clearly is horrible compared to the Impreza blue that she really liked!
All the blues sold out around here. One of the two I drove was blue and was surprised to see that it's a metallic that really pops on a sunny day. With the darker interior two-tone choice, it's a combo that works on this little car.

Hopefully they allow me to take a 2019 Corolla hatchback loaner so I can get some good seat time and decide if its right for us. If they give that to me I'll post my impressions of it in this thread as well.

They had blues here. I could not tell the difference between the Subaru and Toyota blue. The Toyota one however was just totally wrong for some reason. We spent days looking at all the makes and models of a hatchback or small SUV to find one that was just the right shade of blue. NOTHING else mattered.

I drove M/T and CVT XSE's and posted my impressions in another thread. There's a big difference in driver engagement, control and happy time between them. I especially liked the M/T car but they're hard to find and most dealers only place automatics in their loaner/rental fleets. I'll be interested in your thoughts.

I thought it was too feminine but that could be my toxic masculinity talking.

Well the Toyota colour name of "Blazing blue pearl" does slightly edge out Subaru's "Island blue pearl" in the masculine name category. Just slightly.

Depends on the dealer. Mine used Enterprise for their rentals rather than Toyota Rental, so I had a choice between an F150 and a Grand Caravan. Took the F150. Did not crash....
