Dunno really. Not a bad looker but not a great one either. Probably a very decent car but thats all it is really, a car. Nothing special about it

If you are looking for sensible and reliability then these tick all the boxes, they look good in the flesh too.

Ubiquitous sums it up. Super little car but just that. You never see one and think "I'd love one of them" or lust about just having a ride in one. A good shopping trolley/commuter's city car but not cool.

Fence-sitter here too. I voted Cool because there is no opt out option in the voting. Cool or uncool should surely only apply to those who are trying to be, this is isn't.


But, since it definitely isn't uncool and the middle option isn't available it is cool.

Just a means of A to B economically and not an offensive car in any way. Uncool

Just a means of getting from A to B not very economically, because you bought a brand new car when you could have had a second hand one. The fact that you also chose a Toyota shows that you are a conservative and unadventurous sheep who fails to understand the appeal of motoring (and consequently the importance of competent driving), and who is also unlikely to appreciate aesthetics and character as they apply to any aspect of life.
Seriously uncool.

Also, if there's nothing to recommend a car, it defaults to uncool in my book, not to cool.

Double also, the couple in the fourth image are looking out their window at their mother's badly-parked new retirement purchase, wondering if it's time she had her eyesight checked.

It's not cool but you just know it'll start every morning. Slightly dull but worthy.

Aren't they old enough to be round the bend when they buy one of these?
