The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Scion iQ is made for city dwellers who have trouble finding parking; others will see it as a fashion accessory or a vehicular oddity. The 2014 MINI Cooper is a fun, smart, and practical way to get around, without giving up its sporty, quirky side.
