Editor's Overview

Slightly larger than the unrefined Smart Fortwo and more than a foot-and-a-half shorter than the fashionable Fiat 500, the Scion iQ excels in urban environments thanks to its high fuel economy and tiny dimensions that enable it to slip into the smallest parking spots. The iQ technically seats four, but the rear is best left to packages, not people.

I love that my car is very small but in the front it is extremely spacious. It is easy to park in the city and it turns on a dime. I like that it has the Bluetooth option as well and with the seats down it is good for storage since I transport big projects. What I do not like about it is that it is got a small gas tank and I feel like I am filling up all the time.

I love my is because it seats 2, is very roomy and since it basically is a Toyota, it is very reliable. It gets good gas mileage and it zips around town and on the freeway. It is comfortable and has basic features. I have added after market items to mine - cat-back exhaust and k&n intake system so it has more power than a standard is.

It is not made any more since Scion is no longer in business but Toyota should make something similar. We Americans need to think more about the environment instead of driving around big gas guzzling cars to look cool.

I love how compact my car is. It's a very small car but feels very big inside. It was expensive and didn't come with a lot of the bells and whistles of other cars in It's price range. Would have been nice to have a few extra things found standard on other vehicles such as cruise control.
