2012 Scion iQ: Driven

During the media drive of the 2012 Scion iQ, an auto journalist leaned over and said, “I guess this is the future” with a notable lack of enthusiasm. Stretching only 120.1 inches in length – and seemingly as wide as it is long – the iQ has a squat stance and, yes, it does look pretty futuristic. Yet from the deflated tone of this fellow’s comment, my guess is that he’s referring to the iQ’s modest 94-horsepower engine and extreme packaging solutions for passengers and cargo.
