Not sure how much it matters.
Do you need high clearance and 4wd to access the places you want to get to? If so, you should get something with that. How many people do you want to bring? You should get something that will carry that many people.
My wife and I have a Tacoma and Nissan Versa. They will both hold a whole bunch of kayaks- a roof rack and some creativity means this is not a limiting factor. Either will haul 4 people comfortably. For raft trips, the taco gets the nod. If I dont need clearance, the Nissan will get me to more putins per gallon. Any car will stink when left full of wet river gear while you grab a burger and a beer on the way home. I'd buy the yellow one, I hear they are fast and show up best in pictures.
