Love this car!!!
Love this car. CVT transmission works great, and understanding how they are different is important. The car handles like a large car but can turn in incredibly short radius. Back seats golf glare offering tons of space easily accessible from rear hatch or from the front. I felt the horn was weak and replaced it with Hella dual horns and they’re loud and alpine. I added fog light kit got better light and bright led bulbs for the headlights Indide I replaced halogen with led bulbs, added head liner lights in back and in the foot wells. The car is fantastic. I have a 911 C4, a Raptor and a Prius. I’ve had 6 bmws including m5. I love the scion. It’s great. There was one idiot reviewer when these cars came out hat panned this car but his ignorance was stunning. Single handed he helped ruin this cars reputation. He should be waiting tables, and staying away from cars. By the way, I’m 6’1 and my daughters boy friend is 6’2. I got in the back passenger side. He got in the front passenger side. We both had plenty of leg room. I was amazed because you wouldn’t have thought it. But it’s true. The drivers side back seat doesn’t have as much but a smaller person, a kid, wouldn’t have a problem. This car wasn’t designed to schlep around four people, but you can easily take three if you wanted. City parking… you rule ! This car can fit where nobody else can. You could pull straight into the curb between two parallel parked cars and still not stick out. If there’s a spot on the other side of the street you can Uturn without hesitation. It’s a piece of cake! You gotta love this car ! It’s fun and a blast to drive on the freeway at 75 or cruising the city and finding parking where everyone else has to pass by. Love this car!
Fun to drive
Mainly buy the IQ for My wife for grocery shopping and to gym and we have 4Runner and Sienna at the same time. We usually will drive IQ for short distance drive in nice weather conditions. Highly recommended IQ as a second car, it is fun to drive. Build quality is excellent in this size and price range. Safety features and handling are amazing. Totally fine for 2 adults in normal size plus 1 kid less than 5 feet.
Great little car with Toyota quality.
The Scion IQ is a fun little city car that feels just fine on the open road at 80 plus mph. The 94 horsepower engine is only doing 3000 rpm at 70 mph. And it fits in my garage leaving space for my two motorcycles and my wife's car. It will make a you turn into the first lane with ease. And remember it is a Toyota.
