Special features for 2013

The Scion iQ, similar to Smart's offerings, goes above and beyond the similarly sized Fortwo. 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. Its 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 need to get around.


A sub-compact hatchback with seating for two, the 2013 Scion iQ is powered by a 1.3-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 94 hp and 89 lb-ft of torque. FWD paired with a CVT transmission enables the iQ to achieve an EPA estimated 36 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. Features include 16-inch wheels, keyless entry, air conditioning, 4-way front seats, 50/50 split folding rear seats, hands-free phone capabilities, 4-speaker sound system, HD radio, steering wheel mounted controls, and USB jack. Safety is comprised of dual-stage front airbags, front knee airbags, seat-mounted side airbags, seat cushion airbags, rear window airbag, anti-lock brake system (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD), traction control (TCS), brake assist (BA), and vehicle stability control (VSC). The iQ is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.
