If I got a Corolla it would be the XRS. De-badged properly tunned/modded it could be a great little sleeper. thumbsup

"The special edition Toyota, tagged with the XRS moniker, features a slightly detuned 170-hp version of the brand's normally 180-hp 2ZZ dual overhead cam Celica GTS and Matrix XRS engine, a 1.8-L VVTL-i 4-cylinder featuring 127 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission."

AWD isn't available on matrix xrs or vibe gt (means VVTL-i for that matter). AWD is only available on the base model, and the crank hp is lowered to 123...

I wonder if there's "lift kits" to sorta make the XRA more like a mini-SUV.

The euro spec corolla doesn't look the same at all. And it's got the 192hk/141nm t-sport engine (wooohey!)

Looks like this:
