The new iQ from Scion is a microsubcompact, a car well-designed for cities as it can easily fit in curbside parking spaces. A 1.3-liter engine helps the car get an EPA-rated 37 mpg average fuel economy, higher than any other nonhybrid car.
Toyota has been selling its microcar, the iQ, around the world over the past few years, and now it comes to the U.S. wearing a Scion badge. Small cars are becoming more acceptable in the U.S., but Toyota chose its youthful and risk-taking Scion brand to market the car.
At just over 10 feet long, the iQ is very easy to park and has an excellent turning radius. The front seats are easy to fit in, but you have to choose between having rear-seat passengers or cargo space.
