I saw one on the Mass Pike in Boston, yesterday. I'm glad some are getting out on the road.

I drove one a few weeks ago, sorry to say, not impressive in any way, not even conveniently placed cupholders...

Ahh the cup holder. The ultimate deciding factor in weeding out the good from the bad cars in America. Where would we be without it?

Here's how to build some street cred in the SoCal scene, with a popular customization kit for the iQ.

I didn't care for the FE, I wish the car was narrower, a foot longer and had a stick, there is one sitting out in the wausau toyota dealer, sticker wasn't as nice as it should be either.

Only high point was the city FE was decent, which means you could possibly driving very slowly get very good FE but the aero stinks.

The Cd is 0.29 which ain't bad. A few tweaks and it might be decent. It gets better EPA ratings than my xA; though a 6-speed stick and the 1L three cylinder would have been great. In Europe these get 55mpg...
