Have you seen one of those Smart Four-Two’s lately? Compare that to the new Scion iQ, which basically looks like a Four-Two on steroids: Which would you take?
Built on the Japanese version, the Toyota iQ, the Scion is targeted directly at consumers living in close-quarter, bustling cities like L.A. or San Diego. It seats three occupants comfortably (four depending on, um…his/her body size), and employs a modest (yet pretty adequate) 1.3L, I4 engine—worthy of some 94 stallions and 90 lb-ft. of torque. And consider that the car’s wheelbase is even shorter than a two-seater Lotus Elise and that it weighs a very lean 2,150lbs (the average midsize is about twice that), then Scion’s claim of an estimated 36/37 fuel economy and 315-mile range is easily believable.
The west coast gets first dibs on the iQ, then the East coast, and by March of 2012—the landlocked states. Can’t wait? You may just have to settle for a Four-Two for now.
