Scion iQ Dari Toyota Di New York Auto Show

U.S. - Scion iQ from Toyota on the New York International Auto Show event in the United States. Scion iQ will be marketed in the U.S. began the first quarter of 2011.
iQ equipped with engines, 1.3L four-cylinder that produces a force of more than 1990 hp and the latest features dual VVT-i thus saving fuel.
Scion iQ is also equipped with active safety features include Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), anti-lock brake system (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Traction Control (TRAC). iQ features a standard 10 SRS airbags, including curtain airbags for the world's first rear window.

Well, well, well – it looks like Toyota's iQ is coming to the U.S. after all, only it will be (as reported) sporting a Scion badge. Makes sense. Especially as according to Scion, the world's smallest four-seater is aimed squarely at a very young demographic. Not just young, but hip and urban, too. In fact, we were told that the iQ represents a "new urbanism," and is a vehicle for a "progressive buyer." We can hear Glenn Beck's aneurysm from here.

As for details, the "mini-er, smart-er" iQ sports a 1.3-liter engine delivering its not-yet-divulged power through a CVT. Mileage should be in the high 30s, which is reasonable but far from overwhelming for such a small package. The iQ will also ship with stability control, traction control and ABS, as well as ten – count 'em – ten airbags, as well as the industry's first-ever rear window bag. As for now, that's the whole story. We'll update you on price, performance specs, and on-sale date when we know more. Press release after the jump.
