I am looking at other cars like the Focus and the Cruze with their 40 and 42 mpg on the highway, and then I look at the IQ. Why is the IQ not up higher in the fuel economy scale? For years it was all about the weight "if we could only have 2000lb cars, then we would have great fuel economy". Well here comes the small light cars and where is the great fuel economy? The IQ is not that bad of an aero package, but it could be hurt on the highway not being the slickest car made, I will give you that. What about around town though?
- Does Scion=Bastard Step Child when it comes to R&D?
- Are the most fuel efficent powertrains out of reach for the masses that buy Scion?
- Are the youth of today expected to act like their grandpas and great grandpas of the olden days that spent all of their cash on mostly useless mods for their cars. Who has the cash today (JOB?) to pay for bling-bling when gas is at $3+ a gallon and your car sucks more (fuel=cash) than it should?
- Where is the Beef when it comes to FE? Is Toyota acting like Old GM? I thought that horse was dead.
