Model Highlights

The Scion iQ is tiny, with a wheelbase of just 78.7 inches. However, it's amazing what Toyota engineers have been able to pack into that minimal allotted space.

Up front is a 94-hp 1.3L 4-cylinder with variable valve timing. The unit is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that can propel the iQ to 60 mph in just under 12 seconds. More importantly, the iQ returns 36 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.

The iQ rides on 16-inch steel wheels, which are suspended by MacPherson struts up front and a torsion beam in the rear. Braking is courtesy of ventilated front discs and rear drums.

Seating for four is technically possible, but the rear 50/50 split-folding seats are often better suited to carrying a small payload. Cargo capacity is 16.7 cubic feet of space with the seats down. Front seating, on the other hand, is quite ample, with nearly 41 inches of leg room.

Standard exterior features include keyless entry, a rear wiper and folding side mirrors with turn signal indicators. Inside there are standard amenities such as air conditioning, 4-way front seats, outside temperature gauge and power locks, mirrors and windows, with driver and passenger one-touch auto up/down. A leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel with audio controls is also included, as is a 160-watt Pioneer CD stereo with 6.1-inch LCD touchscreen controls, auxiliary audio and USB inputs and Bluetooth hands-free connectivity.

Optional equipment for the iQ includes exterior body moldings and rear spoiler, fog lights, special door sill overlays and illumination, interior lighting, Toyota Racing Development sport suspension components and alloy wheels.

A special-edition "10 Series" iQ is outfitted in Silver Ignition paint, with illuminated front and rear badging, an upgraded Pioneer audio system, special silver interior details and 16-inch alloy wheels.

As in all Scions, safety has been made a high priority in the iQ. The car includes eleven airbags, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution, traction control, stability control and a tire pressure monitor.

Value Writeup

The Scion iQ may be similar in size to those offered by Mercedes-Benz' "smart" brand, but the iQ actually goes above and beyond the competition. The iQ is an engineering powerhouse, with excellent freeway manners for such a small car, as well as an in-the-city demeanor that makes it a snap to maneuver. The iQ's turning radius of 25.8 feet out-performs the smart by nearly three feet and interior materials are top-notch. When the ways that Scion allows for personalizing its vehicles are factored, the iQ shows itself to be a popular choice for urban dwellers who still need practical transportation.

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
