2013 Scion iQ 2dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl CVT)

Review

The comment by the editor that there are larger cars at the same price is hilarious. The whole idea about this car is being small. People like me want a tiny car to zip around. Only problem is that the car doesn't zip very much. And for a tiny car the fuel economy is not much better than my Mazda CX-5 SUV. The engine sounds like there are loose marbles inside at startup, and also makes other uninspiring noises from time to time. The brake pedal makes loud annoying clicking noise (normal noise, according to Toyota). It doesn't offer a lot of features for the money. The only good thing about it is the tiny size.

Best Features

Tiny size, interior room.

Worst Features

Manual transmission, better fuel economy, more refined engine (take a look at Mazda), all-wheel disc brake.
