The 2013 Scion iQ
I will test your 2013 Scion iQ too see how Smart Car you are
So we are seeing every clown car arriving coming with a name that is suppose to reflect on the driver’s choice of car such as the “smart car” and Scion iQ. So when is the Nissan Mensa or the Honda MacArthur Grant coming to the states so we can drive around and flip stupid people off? The problem is that I actually witnessed a woman buy a bottle of smart water and proceed to get in her smart car and drive off with the gas hose still attached making for quite a humorous bout of irony. With that being said we see that city dwellers are in need of smaller and more economic solutions for getting around the mean streets of the NYC or the Berkeley campus. We see that the Scion iQ is of course a rebadged Toyota iQ or Aston Martin Cygnet (seriously). And like the smart car the iQ has been around Europe for a few years and is finally making it to our shores. Toyota is in need to get the hip-funk-fresh Scion up and trendy and to do that they are giving us the 2013 Toyota FT-86 as a 2013 Scion FR-S and the Toyota iQ as the Scion iQ 2013.
2013 Scion iQ Price and Stats
The Scion iQ fits the niche for a personal transporter that has room for your mail-order bride when she gets here. The Scion iQ gets an EPA rated 36 MPG in the city and 37 MPG for the highway. The 2013 Scion iQ starts at a price of $16,000 which seems high to me for what you get. The car is fitted with a ridiculous amount of safety features with the most notable being the nine airbags that inflate and shoot bouncy balls and candy around the cabin when deployed and also makes a clown horn sound. We see that the structure of the cars design has a very rigid frame around the passenger cabin the only drawback to a car this size is that it doesn’t have the larger crumple zone such as a family size sedan so you don’t get as much energy deflected during a high speed impact. The safety rating for the 2013 Scion iQ is a 5 star rating and a top safety pick from some independent testers so that is what you are paying for is all the equipment to save your ass.
Why I would not buy a 2013 Scion iQ
The reason why I would not purchase the Scion iQ is because of the 2013 Toyota Prius C. The 2013 Toyota Prius C is a hybrid model that gets 53 MPG’s city and will start at a price of $19K and looks to simply offer you more for your money than the Scion iQ. Yes the Prius C is larger than the Scion iQ and the only reason I would think about the Scion iQ is if I lived in Manhattan. Plus there is no way I would live in NYC anyways, didn’t you see Cloverfield! Anyways, let us know what you think about the 2013 Scion iQ and if you think it’s a smart choice.
