Scion iQ Concept Sees Daylight in New York
First of all, the concept comes with a 1.3-liter, four-cylinder VVT-i engine that develops 93 horsepower and 89 lb-ft of torque. It boasts 18-inch wheels with a nickel finish and wide tires, as well as front air dam, aero headlamps and high-intensity LED driving lamps.
Interiors feature illuminated door handles, illuminated iQ logo on the passenger-side dash and nickel and raw aluminum interior panels. A 10-inch panel LCD screen provides access to navigation features and entertainment console. Furthermore, a multi-information display lets the driver browse through the odometer, the average speed, temperature and eco lamp.
Other feature highlights including Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, nine airbags - rear window curtain airbag, driver and right passenger front airbags, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbag, side curtain airbag, driver knee airbag and front passenger seat cushion airbag.
“Scion’s iQ concept turns traditional auto design upside down,” said Jack Hollis, Scion vice president. “Traditionally small vehicles have been thought of as being basic. The iQ concept is just the opposite with its innovative features and iconic urban design, and we believe it fits in well within the Scion brand. Our young, trendsetting buyers are creative and innovative forward thinkers, and we think they will appreciate what iQ has to offer.”
