Critical paragraph:

"The iQ, only 117 inches long overall—there [sic] wheelbases of some cars are longer—is powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine rated at 67 horsepower. That compares to the Smart’s 106-inch length and 71 hp. Performance gives the Smart the edge, thanks to its smaller size as well as its six percent greater horsepower, but Toyota found a way to accommodate three people—or two and three-quarter people—while the Smart fortwo is simply for two."

So it seems all the iQ can brag about is an extra seat.

I want to see them get it into the show rooms first. Talk (and hype) is cheap. I wouldn't buy one, but a growing (true) "compact" car market with choices and competition will also help us smart owners in quests for special (cheaper) parking spaces, etc.

I prefer the ease of entry,panoramic roof, nice smile front style,and crash cage in the Smart...Two is a couple,three is a crowd...

The Toyota IQ is a really weird looking car, but im sure there are those who dare say that about the Smart. Looks as if smaller is making a huge impact in the land.
