I want the CVT, but I feel your pain. It seems that Toyota has positioned the iQ to please no one in North America.

For the hypermilers, like me, they aren't offering the turbo-diesel that gets the best economy. That makes me look pretty hard at the Prius C which is a little bigger, but gets 10 more mpg.

For the sports car enthusiasts, tuners, and youth that they say the car is marketed to, they offer only the CVT. (?!) Epic fail!

For the bang-for-the-buck economy shopper Scion wants $16,000 for the iQ. That buyer will run, not walk, to the Yaris or Honda Fit.

For the tree-hugger buyer Scion offers an all electric. But the Leaf has proven in spades that even the tree huggers need some range. So those buyers head straight for the Prius or Volt.

So Toyota, WTF?
