http://www.autobytel.com/scion/iq/2012/ The 2012 Scion iQ is known as a micro car or a sub sub-compact car. Previously the Smart car was the only micro car available in America but now the iQ and even the Fiat 500 are now available for purchase. In fact the Scion iQ has the best combined fuel economy from any gas only powered car on the road today at 36 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on the highway. This car was designed to be the ideal city car the fuel economy in the city really enforces that point.
The 2012 Scion iQ costs $15,265 which is a few thousand above the Smart car but for the extra money you get so much more in return. The iQ comes standard with power windows and doors, a booming Pioneer Radio and CD player, Bluetooth, HD radio, air conditioning, and more. The steering wheel that is not only wrapped in leather but has radio controls integrated into it. Heck the 2012 Scion iQ even comes with 16 inch rims.
The engine on the 2012 Scion iQ is a 1.3 liter 4-cylinder motor that makes 94 horsepower and 89 lb-ft. of torque. While this may not seem like very much power its important to note that the low curb weight (2127 lbs) makes for a peppy little car. The power is transferred to the front wheels through a CVT transmission which aids in the fuel economy department.
