What's New in the 2014 Scion iQ?

The iQ receives a standard 6.1-inch touchscreen display and a limited-edition 10 Series trim level

Which iQ is the Best?

The base iQ is already pushing it on price, so we couldn't justify spending more to get the 10 Series. The entry-level specification would be the one we'd choose, and with minimal accessories at that.

How Much Does a 2014 Scion iQ Cost?

The 2014 Scion iQ is offered in two trim levels -- base and 10 Series -- with a range of optional accessories.

Standard features on the base iQ ($16,420) include 16-in steel wheels with plastic covers, air conditioning, power accessories, a tilt-only leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 4-speaker audio system with a 6.1-in touchscreen display, Bluetooth and iPod/USB connectivity.

The iQ 10 Series ($18,605) adds 16-in alloy wheels, special silver paint, a jackknife-style key, illuminated exterior front and rear Scion badges, premium Pioneer audio, a solar-powered illuminated shift knob, 10 Series badging and silver seat belts.

Scions are all about accessorizing, so the iQ has a long list of add-ons, notably 16-in alloy wheels and premium Pioneer audio (both standard on the 10 Series), a 7-color interior lighting system and performance-oriented upgrades such as lowering springs.

In terms of versatility features, we think it's likely that most iQ owners will keep the rear seats folded flat, because otherwise there's basically no cargo capacity. Scion claims 3.5 cu ft of space behind the rear seat backs, but in truth, you could barely fit a child's knapsack back there. The seat backs are almost flush against the back wall of the car. Flip the rear seats into the floor, however, and you have a flat loading area with 16.7 cu ft to play with. Considering that measurement's bigger than most sedan trunks, it's pretty impressive for a microcar.

Is the 2014 Scion iQ a Safe Car?

The 2014 Scion iQ comes with standard stability control, anti-lock brakes (front discs, rear drums) and a dizzying 11 airbags (front, front-side, front seat-cushion, front-knee, full-length side curtain and rear window).

In government crash tests, the iQ received four stars out of five overall, including four stars for frontal impacts and three stars for side impacts. The independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety was more impressed, giving the iQ its top score of Good in every crash-test category except rear impacts, where the iQ received the second-best Acceptable rating.

2014 Scion iQ vs the competition

FIAT 500 -- The 500 can't match the iQ's overall fuel economy, but it does have a more usable back seat and a healthy dollop of Italian style.

Hyundai Elantra -- Here's an example of a larger car that can be had for iQ-level money. The Elantra is basically better at everything besides parking.

Kia Rio -- The Rio hatchback is a tempting alternative to the iQ, as it's packed with space and features while remaining within shouting distance of the Scion's compact dimensions.
