Scion iQ Vs. Smart fortwo
If you have been searching for a small car for cruising the city streets then we would guess that you have come across the Scion iQ and the Smart fortwo vehicles. These are two of the most economical and proven city cars built and they both have plenty to offer. Today, we want to take a step back and compare the Scion iQ Vs. Smart fortwo cars to see which one is better. Keep on reading to learn whether you should come check out the Scion iQ in Naperville, IL or head over to see a Smart car.
First we can take a look at size. The Scion iQ is slightly larger on the outside than the Smart fortwo, but offers much more space on the inside. Tall people can fit in the iQ and there is seating for up to four. The Smart car only offers room for two. Gas mileage is comparable for both with the iQ getting up to 37 mpg on the highway and the Smart car getting 38. City however, which is what the car was built for, leans toward the iQ with up to 36 mpg and the Smart gets 34.
The Scion boasts a record for any car, 11 airbags with knee airbags for driver and front passenger, in it and the Smart car doesn’t come close. As far as safety goes, the iQ blows the Smart car out of the water, but it also offers more. With up to four passengers the car can be tight, but if there are two or three, the seats adjust to move into the back to allow for more room. With the Smart car, you are limited to two people, no matter what.
Another benefit of the Scion is the interior quality. The materials used are very nice and the interior of the vehicle feels like a luxury car. The sound system is great and is a Pioneer with many speakers. The Smart car just doesn’t offer the same amount of features.
U.S. News and World Reports says that the Scion drastically outdoes the Smart fortwo in all areas including the drive and handling. While the Smart car has been a staple in this market, it has finally met its match with the iQ.
