A new dimension of Scion is unveiled with the introduction of the all-new 2011 iQ premium micro-subcompact.
The iQ’s functional “3+1” seating equates to the world’s smallest four-passenger vehicle. With the driver’s and front-passenger’s seats being slightly off set, this innovative seating arrangement allows for one adult behind the front passenger and a child, small package, or pet behind the driver.
The iQ’s profile, defined by a strong and high beltline, glides from the large, stout headlamps, across the roof and wraps around the rear, emphasizing the iQ’s geometric shape. The rear emphasizes the vehicle’s modern style. Trapezoidal lines run toward the wheels, from the hatch to the bumper’s rear diffuser-like accent, creating a substantial presence.
The iQ comes standard with a six-speaker audio system and is available with multiple audio head units for various degrees of audiophiles. All iQs are outfitted with USB and auxiliary ports, allowing personal devices to be easily integrated into the car. Steering-wheel-mounted controls command the audio system to adjust volume and shuffle through music sources.
Active safety features include Vehicle Stability Control, an anti-lock brake system with Electronic Brake force Distribution, Brake Assist and Traction Control. The iQ comes standard with 10 airbags, including the world’s first rear-window curtain airbag.
The 2011 iQ is equipped with a 1.3-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces over 90 horsepower.
