Scion iQ 2015
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 exceptionally easy parking, and its very good 34-mpg overall fuel economy. The extremely tiny rear seats won't make anyone riding in the second row happy, and the numb and overly quick steering makes the iQ less-than-enjoyable to drive. Unless you spend all of your time driving in a crowded city, this Scion model makes little sense. Many nicer cars cost about the same, get comparable fuel economy, and don't beat you up. The last year for the iQ was 2015.
