The iQ is Scion’s version of the Toyota iQ sold in the rest of the world. Intended for use in crowded cities, the iQ might have the toy-car look of the Smart Fortwo, but the iQ has a back seat and can hold four people. The folks in the back won’t be terribly comfortable, but at least it’s possible.
Scion’s top seller gets new chiseled sheetmetal and a classier interior for ’11, but you have to squint to notice. The larger, 2.5-liter four has more grunt and the handling is sharper, but, as before, the main selling point is the stereo and standard features, including a sunroof, for a nice price.
Ballooned up in its 2008 redesign, the xB welcomes five adults and swallows parcels aplenty in its boxy shape. It’s got a big 2.4-liter engine for solid thrust, but a 500-pound weight gain eats into fuel economy. Like the xD, the xB prioritizes style and stereo output over handling and power.
Sharing the same underpinnings as Toyota’s subcompact Yaris, the Scion xD delivers five-door-hatchback flexibility in a not-entirely-dorky-looking package. It feels solid and stable, but that does not translate to exciting handling. The xD is a mobile fashion accessory for the small budget.
