2012 Scion iQ Review

For the trendsetting generation of urban drivers it’s the new 2012 Scion iQ. There’s no sacrificing on style comfort or features in the new iQ. The vehicle defines the premium micro-subcompact segment. At one glance you’ll notice the striking geometrical shape. The stout headlamps and integrated turn signal mirrors accent the iQ’s clean design. The smart 1.3-liter 4-cylinder engine combined with a Continuously Variable Transmission will deliver smooth acceleration and excellent fuel efficiency as you deftly maneuver through city traffic. This urban commuter is for music lovers with features like a 6-speaker audio system USB and auxiliary ports and steering wheel mounted controls. Small in size but large on safety the Scion iQ fits loads of standard safety features. It has stability and traction control antilock brakes and 10 airbags including the worlds first ever rear window curtain airbag. The new 2012 Scion iQ – it’s the car that packs in the comfort and functionality that drivers expect from a car twice its size.
