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.
