Editor's Overview

Scion likes to describe the new-for-2012 iQ as the world's smallest 4-seater. But if you really need four seats on a regular basis, the iQ isn't the smart choice. If, on the other hand, ...

Scion IQ, tiny, sleek, and comfortable

Though small it feels large on the inside. Excellent gas mileage and smooth rides. I love the turn radius and how easy it is to maneuver. I don't really like the fact that my glove compartment is a bucket under the passenger seat but in terms of making space for the back seats I understand it�s necessity. The car is very sturdy and feels like I'm safe inside of it. The car does have an odd blind spot on the left side that makes it a bit hard to change lanes if you don't know where to look to see there but visibility is overall great.

Scion IQ: The car for the space-conscious, but not for the family

The Scion IQ is a car designed for a specific person- small, easy to drive, but not really useful for the average driver (try fitting your groceries with 2 kids inside!), the Scion is mostly useful for traveling to and from work. Doing other things, like long drives for vacations, or chores, really isn't the best with this car. But for commuting, this car is great!

Why I love my small car. =).

I love the fact that I do not have to put in as much money to fill up the tank. I get great gas mileage. Seats are comfortable. I love the simple yet sleek look of the car itself. The grey color is pleasant to the eye. Able to drive longer distances without having to worry about car breaking down on me in the middle of the road.
