yeah they need to rethink the current xv love fest, its a nice car but its still just a lifted regular imp, why every vendor has been making parts for the the xv and not the regular imp is pretty annoying especially 2 years after its release, can you say light bars anyone. The hybrid would no doubt have been better served and attracted more customers if it were on their highest epa rated car. How many hybrid owners do you know that go offroads or require a higher riding vehicle. I have yet to see a lifted prius but I could be wrong. Without a doubt the xv line would have been properly served with a diesel variant for the US, hybrid drivetrain not so much.
