The replacement for the xA was the xD, but in Japan, it was the continuing line of the ist. Promoted as the “Crossover Compact”.
Small compact 4 door hatchback. It comes in FWD format with the 2ZR-FE DOHC 1.8 motor pushing 138 hp! What is interesting is the ist in Japan was offered with a 1.5 liter and if you got the 150x C package, it was available as 4WD!
Team Hybrid.. they’ve been putting out quality builds for a long time!
