About the Scion iQ

Vehicle Summary

If you are in the market for a subcompact car that looks more unique than most any other vehicle on the road then the Scion iQ may be the ideal car for you. With that said, though, the Scion iQ is a vehicle that has much more to offer than just its unique exterior and interior design. Smooth and agile handling, for example, is another area where the Scion iQ really shines. After first coming onto the market as a 2012 model, the Scion iQ was discontinued following the release of the 2015 model. Today, however, the Scion iQ is still available for sale on the used car market. Drivers who purchase a 2015 Scion iQ - the vehicle's final model year - can look forward to a 94 hp 1.3L four-cylinder engine as well as standard features such as a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable outside mirrors with turn signal indicators, and more. All things considered, the Scion iQ is a great vehicle for anyone looking to buy a used subcompact car.

Reviews for Scion iQ

Overall Rating

4.2 out of 5 (10 reviews)

Adorable and reliable but definitely not a luxury car

1. Scion uses a proprietary oil filter that requires a special tool. Pretty much means you have to take the car to the dealership for every service. 2. Synthetic oil changes are more expensive. 3. The tiny tires on the iQ are ridiculously expensive and even the dealership has to order them overnight! 4. Feels like an economy car. Dashboard features are jumbled together, only one cupholder in the front, stereo not as nice as the xD, interior light is useless, "glove box" is a cheap plastic tray under the passenger seat. 5. Smaller engine feels...well, small. Car struggles to accelerate, especially on freeway ramps. All of this aside, I do love my little car. It's adorable and OH MY GOD I can park it ANYWHERE. I love that.

Pros

  • Value: Great price for the quality of the car.
  • Fuel Economy: Good but not that much better than my Scion xD.
  • Visibility: I like driving a cute car. And this one is bright orange, so I'm not worried about earth-killing SUVs plowing over me.

Cons

  • Ride and Handling: The smaller engine definitely feels strained when accelerating.
  • Interior Space: I like that it's cozy, but it's not for everyone.
  • Cost to Maintain: Oil changes and tires cost WAY more than a typical car. At least it doesn't require premium fuel like the SMART.

Love My Car!

Good gas mileage, easy to maneuver, adorable. I love driving this car. We drove from Texas to Florida in it; me, my husband, and our two small dogs, and there was plenty of room for all of us, our suitcases, and a big dog bed. This is not a family car; the back seat is tiny and there's literally no leg room. But it's a great car if you want something cute, tiny, and dependable.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Great gas mileage - it does have a tiny gas tank so if you're on a road trip, you will stop more than once a day to fill up.
  • Cargo Space: If you fold the back seat down you have lots of room in the hatchback.
  • Reliability: Scion = Toyota = dependable!

This thing is great (for certain people)!

The person for whom this car is the right choice is very specific. If you value a physically small and efficient car that's easy to maneuver over just about anything else, this is your car. It's also inexpensive, and seems to be surprisingly well made, especially when compared to other options in this size class.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Hybrid-like fuel economy without the need for an expensive hybrid system.
  • Interior Space: This car makes the most of its diminutive outer dimensions to provide a great deal of space for two or three people and cargo.
  • Ride and Handling: This can make a U-turn almost anywhere. It's extremely maneuverable when driven at sane speed, and is reasonably comfortable to ride in.

Cons

  • Power: This car has 93 horsepower. It's adequate for surface streets, but poorly suited for fast expressways.
  • Cargo Space: Toyota sacrificed a lot of cargo space to make the car as small and nimble as it is.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Especially in comparison to new cars in 2016, the iQ doesn't have a whole lot of bells and whistles to keep you occupied while you're sitting at stoplights.
