The 2012 Scion iQ offers big ideas in a small package, perfect for congested urban environments. It may be the world’s smallest four-seater, but the all-new iQ offers class-leading fuel efficiency, power and urban agility, class-leading safety systems, plus all the standard features and personalization opportunities that drivers expect from Scion.
  • The 2012 iQ’s 1.3-litre, four-cylinder engine is mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission with gate-type shifter. This combination produces:
    • a class-leading horsepower - peak 90 hp - for confident acceleration;
    • a best-in-class fuel efficiency of 5.1L/100 KM (city/highway combined) – similar to vehicles that feature less passenger and cargo capacity than the iQ;
    • A Tier 2 Bin 5 emissions rating and Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV II) classification.
  • Engineering innovations including a compact air-conditioning unit, inverted front-mounted differential, and electronic power-steering system with compact steering column combine to significantly decrease front-end length;
  • The 3-door hatchback can easily manoeuvre in city traffic and claim any parking spot, thanks to a 78.7-inch (1,999 mm) wheelbase and class-leading turning radius of just 3.9 meters.
  • iQ is equipped with a flat gas tank housed beneath the floor that reduces rear overhang;
  • Front windshield acoustic glass reduces wind noise.
  • Class-leading standard safety equipment on every iQ includes:
    • A class-leading 11 airbags - including the world's first rear-window curtain airbag.  Other airbags include: 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 seat-cushion airbag.
  • The Scion standard Star Safety System, featuring:
    • Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
    • Traction Control (TRAC)
    • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
    • Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
    • Brake Assist (BA)
    • Smart Stop Technology (SST)
  • Additional safety technologies include: side impact beams; all position 3-point lap and shoulder belts; a fast-acting LED stop lamp; window jam protection; and anchor points for child restraint seats.
  • The world’s smallest and safest 4-passenger vehicle; features functional “3+1” seating:
  • A Scion first, the extra-slim front seat backs provide added rear legroom and comfort;
  • Innovative off-set front driver and passenger seats allows for 1 adult behind passenger plus a child, small package or pet behind driver’s seat;
    • Power adjustable and heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals accent the clean design;
    • A generous suite of premium features include: leather-wrapped steering wheel; power door locks with keyless entry; power windows with auto up/down function; a comprehensive instrument panel with ECO Indicator, multi information display, trip computer; plenty of well-designed in-cabin storage, from the centre console bin to a storage tray under the rear seat; and more.
    • Versatile rear seats, featuring a 50/50 split and the ability to fold flat, making room for two golf bags worth of gear!
    • Standard six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA audio system with standard USB and auxiliary audio input jacks and steering wheel-mounted audio controls, plus a choice of available multiple audio head units for audiophiles.
  • As a Scion model, the iQ is well-equipped with a full range of features, from air conditioning and cruise control to serious audio systems with Scion Sound Processing.
  • Upgrades and accessories can be added to any Scion a la carte, allowing for maximum personalization. From unique wheels, shift knobs and sport pedals to satellite radio systems and a broad selection of TRD (Toyota Racing Development) performance enhancements, Scion customization combinations are almost endless.
