As the title states, it looks like we will not be getting any manual IQs over here. Only the CVT transmission which I am not too thrilled about. Anyone used it or know more about this rumor?
Toyota must have learned from the Smart people that manual/semi-auto transmissions have limited appeal in the US. Toyota could build a manual trans version, sell a small amount to die hards, then move fore-wards with the CVT as common sense dictates. Fuel economy rules, and buyers know it!Strange, I thought this could have been one of the cars that went the other way...offering a manual transmission but not having an automatic option.
Wouldn't be surprised if Scion flips on this choice and releases the manual option within a year or two of release
