Although it is my least favorite automotive program, a currently running episode of Motorweek features our beloved iQ. What I liked about the segment is that they took the iQ for what it is, not making wild, unrealistic comparisons to other cars in other segments.

You'll want to catch this "test drive" segment, especially if you drive a Black Sand Pearl iQ (the test car), otherwise here is the narrative: 2012 Scion iQ | MotorWeek

I was happy that they got 0-60 times at 9.6 seconds instead of the 12 or so that I normally see. I think maybe they actually used the S setting for extra revs. I think it's a very good cvt. Pretty solid review. Fifth Gear also gave it a really good review and Top Gear gave it good ratings.
It's a MUCH better car than some sites give it credit for.

I agree....and with so many significant positive reviews, the not-so-positive ones that pop up now and then seem out-of-step (and perhaps get more attention than they deserve).
