Good review as always Mike........of an absolutely horrid vehicle. Still dont get the point of that thing, especially at almost $22k.

Base price 16K$? Why somebody will take this one instead of Hyundai Accent is beyond me.

The improvements are pretty nice for what they are but putting any additional money into an iQ is beyond my comprehension.  I guess my IQ doesn't sync with the IQ of an iQ owner.  I think you need a very, very specific IQ to appreciate an iQ.

Yes it looks better, but it don't perform any better and it even adds weight to the existing car. That's good, it's nice to have an even slower car now.  >:( Total waste of money without addressing the engine compartment needs. ;)
