The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Distinctive, quirky, and lightly restyled this year, the 2013 Smart ForTwo is at its best in crowded cities where parking and maneuverability are top priorities, but smooth driving takes careful practice and almost any other inexpensive car is a better choice for highway use. The 2013 Scion iQ will appeal to space-challenged city dwellers; for everyone else, it's a lifestyle choice to buy a car that stands out from the crowd.
