true Scion iQ statement from top gear.The best thing about the iQ is that it has – and remember that I’m saying this about a Toyota – a tremendous sense of personality. From a car maker whose range is generally worthy but about as exciting as bleeding to death in a warm bath, you can’t help but think they’ve gone and done it. A bit of Mini cheek matched with the modernity and rationality of a Smart – except better than both. Best of all, it’s bang on timing-wise, well-sorted and brilliantly conceived. And it makes all the rest look compromised, out-of-date and dull. It’s also reassuringly expensive.
