Scion recently invited PSFK out to Manhattan Beach, CA for unveiling of its Scion iQ, a micro-subcompact car this is just 10 feet in length and therefore the smallest 4-passenger vehicle in the world. Some of its unique features include an integrated safety system with 11 airbags, a combined city and highway 37 miles per gallon, and low emission levels meeting the standards of regulation. Rethinking the positioning of its internal components, the iQ boasts a unique series of engineering innovations which leave a spacious interior for the front two passengers. With its focus on efficiency in every respect, the iQ sets itself apart for having a minimal impact on its surroundings.

See the video below for Scion’s Field Operations Manager, Brian Sciumbato, highlight some of the iQ’s specifications.
