The 2011 Scion iQ will carry a price tag of $15,995 when it hits dealerships later this year (that price includes destinations). That’s a little more expensive then competitors like the Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Yaris and the Nissan Versa.
The 2011 Scion iQ will be released in four different phases. The West Coast will get it in October, while the South will get it in January. Those to markets will be followed by the East Coast and the middle part of the United States.

Like the Toyota version, the Scion iQ for the stateside sits on a 78.7-inch wheelbase and has an overall length of only 120.1-inches and a width of 66.1-inches. Inside it gets the same ’3+1′ seating like the Toyota iQ. The iQ will come standard with 10 SRS airbags, including the world’s first rear-window curtain airbag.
The 2011 Scion iQ is powered with a 1.3-liter, 4-cylinder engine that produces over 90 horsepower and features the latest dual VVT-i. It is mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that helps a combined fuel economy in the high 30s (official figures coming soon).
