My daughter accuses me of tipping the Fit up on 2 wheels (and she's a roller coaster girl). Besides, luggage. Baby stuff takes a lot of space, and we did some big trips in the Legacy. If I'd gotten the WRX, all those trips would have been in a first gen XTerra.

Did you ask the whole family? I heard about a couple of kids who always opted for riding in the back of an MG TC until they absolutely could not fit.
My son has two older half-brothers (long story). They rode in the luggage space behind the back seat of this Beetle until they were so old their arms and legs wouldn't fit.

I also enjoyed it, and did it even in a Fiat Uno

Even though the naturally-aspirated 1.0L engines are not so sought after as they used to be, and in part it can be credited to the increased acceptance of automatic transmissions in Brazil, it still retains a strong foothold even among commercial operators.
