Scion iR, maybe my next commuter car?

Heard about this iR being a new City Car for the brand, something to potentially be the iQ's successor. My needs for a vehicle are basic enough that my current vehicle, a 99 Civic EK Hatchback, is more than enough.

Always wanted a compact along the lines of a SmartCar or iQ, never liked the iQ and was discouraged from getting a SmartCar... iR could be it, especially with what I've been seeing of Scion recently.

How compact are you hoping the Scion iR will be?
Both the iQ and the smartcar are tiny compared to the rendering in the banner.

The Scion iR won't be that size. It's compact but more like the size of the Toyota Aygo probably.

Still not far off but the iQ helps to create a good frame of reference, good for those that aren't entirely sure about these compacts. Not every day that you see them on the road... for now.

The iQ is about the smallest that cars come so saying something is bigger than it doesn't really say much in my opinion.

Again it comes back to a reference point and that's what it is in the city car game, it's one of the few that people are familiar with.

The Golf and the Juke are other cars that are quite compact but a little bigger than the iQ.

That's a bit overboard but I was thinking in terms of the Mazda 2 hatch and Toyota Aygo, the next step up.

Would you consider the CX3 from Mazda?

Why? I want a compact, that's levels above what I want and need.
