Aggressive-trying to find its dimensions, the IQ’s styling elicits a lot more admiration on the road than a Smart ForTwo hatchback but lacks the panache of the old style-inspired Fiat 500 or Mini Cooper.

2012 Scion IQ Interior Features
1 of the largest problems in creating the littlest autos is developing a cabin large enough to fit higher car owners without the need of inducing claustrophobia strikes on passengers. But the 2012 Scion IQ achieves this with general simplicity. The cabin can feel remarkably airy, and Scion tells us the place in between the entrance seats is larger than that of Toyota’s Yaris or Corolla models. The front traveler seat is offset with a path that is placed a greater distance to give the traveler right behind better legroom. Scion also ditched an appropriate glove area for a plastic-type pack under the person seat that glides in and out, although flimsily.
2012 Scion IQ Driving Impressions
We drove a prototype of the 2012 Scion IQ provided with the navigation, the top quality audio system, and TRD suspensions components. The somewhat bigger monitor kept the IQ feeling secure, even at freeway rates of speed. Acceleration is continuous and clean with the1.3-liter, four-cylinder engine, and had only enough oomph making it up steep hills filled with two svelte adults. We assume a total fill would give the 94-hp car a physically demanding exercise routine.
