I went last night and they had two iQs on display. Here are a few pictures that I took:











My girlfriend seemed to fit okay in the back seat but only behind the front passenger seat. The rear +1 seat behind the driver seat is reserved for legless mannequins.

It's pretty cool. Both my girlfriend and I really liked it and were even considering it, though it's not too likely since we moved away from the beach (and don't need to parallel park into tiny spaces) plus she has a Corolla herself (current average to date is 34.0 mpg according to the car itself) and I have an Evo but only live 1.5 miles from work, so mpg isn't too big of a concern. I still wouldn't mind having one though.

thats awesome! good to see you guys finally get a up close and personal look on the iQ. Reading on these cars online only do you so good, in person it's a whole different ball game.

how did you fit in the iQ if you tried?

Only the orange iQ was acccessible, and I didn't really get a chance to go in it since there was a guy already in the driver's seat, plus there were other people trying to sit in it while my girlfriend was taking her sweet ass time, so I didn't want to hold people up.

That being said, it's fairly roomy on the inside for what it is, especially if you've been in the other tiny cars on the market. My girlfriend is 5'4" or so, and I think that in the back right seat, she'd fit okay as long as the person in the front passenger seat isn't more than 5'9", give or take. The guy who was sitting in the driver seat was about 5'11" or 6', and as I alluded to in my original post, anyone with legs will not be able to fit behind him (as it's the +1 seat). If the driver is short (say, 5'6" or under), then you might be able to squeeze a kid or even a small adult back there, but even then it wouldn't be comfortable. As you can see, backseat headroom is pretty good, and even if it's someone a bit taller, they'll still have good clearance.
