Why be Smart... When you can have iQ

2012MY Scion iQ Highlights

MSRP for the 2012MY Scion iQ CVT-i transmission is $15,995, including Delivery Processing and Handling from Japan.

By means of a wave launch, the iQ will arrive throughout the U.S. in various

stages, beginning with an on-sale date of October 1 on the West Coast.

Wave 1: (LA, SF, PTL) October 1

Wave 2: (DEN, SET, GST) January 2

Wave 3: (BOS, NY, CAT) February 1

Wave 4: (CHI, CIN, KC) March 1



Made possible by intelligent and functional packaging, the iQ succeeds at taking big ideas and concentrating them into a small package. Intelligent engineering innovations like a compact air-conditioning unit, inverted front-mounted differential, and electronic power-steering system with a compact steering column are responsible for the iQ’s ability to be small in size, but large in capability. Interior passenger space is optimized by the unique “3+1” offset seating arrangement that allows for one adult behind the front passenger and a child or small package behind the driver.

In addition to a standard Star Safety System, the iQ is packed with an industry leading 11 standard airbags and includes the world’s first rear-window airbag. Other airbags include driver and front-passenger airbags; driver- and front-passenger seatmounted side airbags; side curtain airbags; driver- and front passenger knee airbags; and a Scion-first, driver and front passenger seat-cushion airbags.

The 2012 iQ is equipped with a 1.3-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 94 horsepower and 89 lb.-ft of torque. It features the latest dual VVT-i, which allows it to be impressively efficient, providing a broader powerband yet requiring less fuel and generating fewer emissions.


The iQ is rated as an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV-II), and achieves an EPA-estimated combined fuel economy of 37 miles per gallon, comparable to similar vehicles that feature less passenger and cargo capacity. The iQ’s profile, defined by a strong and high beltline, glides from the large, stout headlamps, up the A-pillar, across the roof and wraps around the rear, emphasizing the iQ’s geometric shape. Side mirrors with integrated turn signals accent the clean design and give it a premium look.
