When the Scion iQ city car goes on sale this October it will be offered exclusively with a CVT transmission. That, however, is likely to change admits brand boss Jack Hollis

"We already have it," he told AutoGuide, referring to the 6-speed manual currently offered on the Toyota-branded iQ in Europe. Now it's just a question of getting it certified for use on U.S. roads.

"We can do it," he said with enthusiasm, commenting that he'd like to see it introduced in the iQ as part of a limited edition Release Series model. Until then, find out why we don't hate the CVT transmission here.
