Of course I was talking, “relatively” . The T100 compared to a compact car is significantly larger I feel. And, as @db4690 points out, larger then a Ranger by a lot. It is bigger then the later Tacoma which is midsize…big in my book.
Good that you walked away and were safe. We are all thankful for that. Lucky too you were struck by an equally crappy Explorer…just kidding.
Corolla may be OK. Boring maybe, and one size up from the Echo/Tercel, but it might work for you…
Then again, I shouldn’t recommend a car I wouldn’t want to drive.
