The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Scion iQ is perfect for city dwellers with really tough on-street parking; for everyone else, it's more of a statement about minimalism. The 2014 Smart ForTwo is now an old design, but it remains the easiest car to park in cities, and it's at its best in urban traffic; the electric model, new last year, is the nicest of the bunch, and now remarkably cheap.
