Electrolux full size machines require an opening of 24x25 inches, easily swallowed by the two Mazdas for example. The Yaris and the Fit are much smaller then the hatchbacks above, and especially the Mazda6 wagon...!
Keep in mind that US appliances are quite a bit larger than their European counterparts, especially the huge front-load washers that are becoming so popular. Most of them are over 30" wide and 48" tall.
The smallest car I'd recommend would be something like a Subaru Outback. You can fit a surprising amount of crap in them with the rear seats folded down. That said, we had a little trouble fitting a Sony 34XBR970 (34" widescreen CRT TV) in ours. It's a little smaller than a washer — 39" x 26" x 24" — and it just barely fit.
