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.

With its focus on efficiency in every respect, the iQ sets itself apart for having a minimal impact on its surroundings.
