Scion iQ

Scion’s iQ recently rolled into dealerships as a rebadged version of the Toyota iQ – a popular urban-city car in other parts of the world. Well, it seems like the Scion version of the iQ wasn’t so popular with Consumer Reports.

The iQ scored as the second-lowest scoring car in our ratings. What happened?

“While the iQ’s fuel economy is good within its class, it requires drivers to endure a lot of trade-offs just to save at the pump. Its $16,205 sticker price is no bargain either,” said David Champion, Sr. Director of Consumer Reports Automotive Test Center.
