Excuse my stupidness on the subject :)

Having never driven a smaller car such as the iQ, how hard are they to see out of?

I'm worried about blind spots and knowing where the front and back bumpers are. Already bumped to many cars parking in my current car! :eek:

From what I have seen and driven it depends on the visibility out the windows. Other factors also include how well the car seats you. If it doesn't seat you well, do not expect to be able to see your bumpers and corners.

Test drive the car first if you have any concerns about something like this.

I don't think you will have many problems if you are a reasonably good driver. I find it is very easy to estimate where the front and rear bumpers are, on smaller cars. Almost like they become a part of you when you drive them because they are so small - easy to feel comfortable driving one.

Blind spots can happen in little cars too I would imagine, depending where the pillars are on the car. If you turn and there is nothing but a pillar behind you, there is your blind spot.

Will have to wait and see for the iQ what it is like.

You'd definitely have to test drive the IQ to see where the blind spots are. The comment about how the car seats you is very important. Although the IQ looks cute and amazing, you just may not be comfortable in it. That said, once you get your IQ and you're comfortable driving it, blind spots will be the least of your worries :)

Companies do try to minimize blind spots these days on cars, but as some have said above seating position and the size of the driver make a difference too. Hopefully this will be an easy one to see out of as I am sure many will be buying it for their kids.
