I’ve been seeing some ads for the new Scion (Toyota) iQ. It’s a cute little car similar in style to the Smart car. Looking up some info online, I learned that there will be a diesel version of the iQ sold only in Europe that gets about 65 miles per gallon. This fuel efficient iQ costs about £13,000 or $20,000. The US gas version, according the to the Scion web site, will get about 37 MPG.
I took a little side trip over to the Ford UK page for the Fiesta and there is a model of the Fiesta called the ECOnetic that gets about 75 MPG and sells for about £14,000 or $22,000.
The Volkswagen Up is another small car available to European consumers. It gets a combined 62 MPG and sells for about £12,000 or $18,600.
