Smarter than Smart.
I traded in a 2008 Smart car on this 2012 IQ. A very smart move. This car is faster, more comfortable, more storage space, and seemingly better built. That last statement is based on hearing a "solid" sound when closing the doors. I also paid $18,800, because of the premium stereo, Sirius XM, fog lights, premium paint, fancy wheels, etc. This is NOT a stripped down rides, drives, and feels just like a "real" car.
I love my lil iQ
I was attracted to the iQ for the gas mileage at the onset, but quickly grew to admire the little car. The final decision to buy my iQ was made when my wife asked my children; 'What car do you see your dad driving?' The answer made my choice clear; 'The iQ' So I'm now driving a nice purple iQ with the following at time of purchase: Lowering Springs, Anti Sway Bar, Fog lights, Spoiler I put in the following aftermarket: Pioneer AVIC Z140BH, Injen Cold Air Intake I love my little iQ. It's peppy and handles very very well. I'm mostly happy with the gas mileage, knowing that it will get better as I break in the engine.
Great Little Car!
I am a 37 Year old man 6'2" tall and weigh 235 lb. You would not think this car would suit me, but you would be wrong! I bought this car for work, I drive mostly in town and wanted some thing that got good gas mileage and was easy to park. This fit the bill for me exactly. I looked at many new cars before I chose this one. At first, I thought it would just be too small after driving my Lexus ES300 for years. But was amazed at just how roomy it really is! Very easy to get in and out of and the front seats adjust nicely. Keep in mind that I normally drive alone so I cant not complain about "no room for others". But if you need to haul around more than two adults, look else where.Love this car!
More About This Model

You can paint it up in zippy colors, make the interior glow and play the music loud, but the 2012 Scion iQ really relates to anyone looking for a place to park. And that's just about everybody, right?

The future has arrived and it's come in a pocket-size urban runabout designed for utility, not speed. The concept here is personal mobility, and it takes shape in a car that seats 3+1, measures barely 10 feet long, can spin around in a turning circle about the size of two king-size mattresses and gets 37 mpg on the EPA Combined cycle.

There will be those who will mistake the 2012 Scion iQ as some kind of overgrown Smart Fortwo, a vehicle that straddles the line between scooter and automobile. But it's more accurate to think of the iQ as a downsize Toyota Corolla, only liberated from the bits that you don't use very much, like the backseat and the trunk.

The iQ is supposed to fit in with the way that people really live in metropolitan areas. This means a car that is small on the outside and big on the inside. This means a car that's small enough on the outside to feed on leftover scraps of curbside parking even as it's large enough on the inside to offer a full-size experience when it comes to cabin comfort and electronic entertainment.

The 2012 Toyota iQ really isn't like anything else, but you're likely to compare it to other cars for which basic transportation is the prime directive. Among these you'd count the Fiat 500, Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit and Hyundai Accent.

Of these, the 2012 Scion iQ is the smallest and slowest, while its price and fuel-efficiency are comparable.
