Very, very nice cars indeed. I work at a sign shop (as some of you may know), and we had originally planned to completely cover both of these cars in camo graphics for a local Toyota dealership. They just brought both of these models over yesterday, and I got to take a mini test drive around to the back of the shop.

The control seems to be very good, as well as the get-up-and-go factor. They accelerate pretty darn quickly, although it's nothing to yell about. I don't know much about cars, but these are very nice. The xA gets darn good gas milage at 32/36, and the xB at around 30/34. I'm sure most of you know this stuff, but I'm very impressed with these models.

That's one of the better parts of my job, getting to drive a lot of new vehicles :).

Disagree.

Someone needs to combine the xB and the Element... whoever does it right would have a real winner, IMO.

I agree with that statement on the xB, but the xA has a nice appealing look to it. Kinda reminds me of a Toyota Rav-4 or Ford Escape.

Both are already winners. They are selling above expectations.
