I looked into the Protoge5 when I was looking at cars (and ended up with the Matrix). It only comes in a 2.0L, and the EPA rating is a fair amount lower than the Matrix at 28 combined vs 24 combined in the Protege. That, plus the Matrix being a slightly larger vehicle was enough to turn me off. I can't deny I'm a bit biased toward Toyota though.

What about a VW Golf TDI? To small?
