The 2012 Scion iQ will begin to arrive in dealerships this October after a very long, much anticipated wait. This micro-subcompact is the world’s smallest four-seater vehicle at only 10 feet long.
"Scion prides itself on being an innovative brand with a lineup of iconic vehicles that set automotive trends,” said Jack Hollis, vice president of Scion. “The iQ is the fourth vehicle in the family and it will define the premium micro-subcompact segment as the choice for new urbanites who want clever transportation without a sacrifice in style or new features.”
With ingenuity and creativity the 2012 iQ has been made into a small car that offers the functionality and comfort that drivers would expect from a car twice its size.
In order to comfortably seat four people the Scion iQ has a unique “3+1” offset seating arrangement. Slim-back front seats optimize rear legroom for one adult behind the front passenger and a child behind the driver.
Though this vehicle is small in size it is very big on safety. With an industry leading 11 standard airbags the micro-subcompact Scion iQ can be considered a premium vehicle. The air bags include the world’s first rear window airbag, driver- and front-passenger airbags; driver- and front-passenger seat-mounted side airbags; side curtain airbags; driver- and front-passenger knee airbags; and a Scion-first driver- and front-passenger seat-cushion airbags.
Look out for the 2012 Scion iQ at your local Scion dealership this fall. All iQ models are covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile comprehensive warranty and 5-year/60,000-mile power train warranty.
