I don't really have any preference of brand, but I like the sporty/unique appearance of the car, along with good gas mileage and spacious trunk cargo.The Honda HR-V and nissan Juke are just a couple of them. Do you have any brands you prefer? What are you looking for in this segment specifically?
I heard about the VW Golf being its top competitor, but what's the major difference I wonder...Jeep Renegade, VW Golf, Hyundai Veloster...
Yeah, I'm definitely using it for daily commute within the city.Actually the iR is supposed to be a city car, so when you consider that and other things in its segment you're quite limited.
So that could even be something like a used SmartCar, it's just about the best city car you can get and being on the used market for a while now, you'll get the most for your money with those.
Here's what a real owner had to say about their SmartCar:
Yeah, I hope so.I think that the iR will be fine in the city. There may be smaller cars but not much smaller. The iR gives you a bit more space so that it is more practical than a smartcar.
Very true, just like how I recently watched the smart car review and the guy was like me. He initially declined to ever sit in one or drive it around, but until he got into it, he loved it.I can agree to an extent on SmartCar design but one thing we all can agree on is how good they are as city cars, it about the best it gets with functionality. Most don't see the value of one on paper, but get behind the wheel and you'll have mostly positive things to say.
Fortunately now we're getting some of that functionality in Toyota's, like this.
