Scion iQ Overview

The Scion iQ, a tiny four-seat hatchback, is one of the lowest scoring cars we've tested in recent years. Slow, noisy, and uncomfortable, the iQ's few positives include being exceptionally easy to park and its very good fuel economy of 34 mpg overall. The extremely tiny rear seats won't make anyone riding back there happy, and the numb and overly quick steering makes the iQ darty. The iQ makes little sense unless you spend all of your driving time in a crowded city. Plenty of much nicer cars cost about the same, gets comparable fuel economy, and don't beat you up.
