SMART or Toyota IQ?

I had my heart set on finding a SMART...and then I came across this IQ...and now I'm confused! The IQ is due out next year, I think.

I'm curious as to what people think about the 2 cars

No pics of the SMART since you all know what it looks like

****! That Toyota is nice ... but I think you will be happier with the SMART. In the Toyota you will every now and again think " I should of got the SMART car."

You'll never think that in the SMART its 10 times nicer.

It has a bigger engine... and it looks like its stick-shift option but says automanual?


I think the better question is... can we fit a busa engine in it?

What the ****, this came out of no where. I still kinda like the smart better, but I like the Mini Cooper the best for "mini-cars".

This is sad you guys.

We're comparing econo-box type appliances-on-wheels now.

Is gas hurting you guys that bad, honestly?

Nope. this is going to be a toy car for me. I was previously looking at the original mini-cooper, 510's, 2002's, but I want something smaller now Plan is for some type of engine swap somewhere down the line

I think the IQ looks nice in certain areas. I really like the profile and interior of the car. Looking at it straight on from the front and end, I'm not totally sold. I think the SMART looks nicer from the front and rear.
