The 2012 Scion iQ has been presented to California’s motoring press who learned that the two-door is priced from $15,995 and that it arrives at dealerships in the fall. Originally, the Scion iQ was supposed to debut in the U.S. in the summer but it was plagued with issues like supply and the March disaster in Japan.
But since then, Toyota had been able to have its factories operating normally again and earlier than expected to.
The launch of the iQ will have four phases, according to Scion spokespeople. The iQ will arrive in the western U.S. this October and in the south this January. Shortly after, the Scion will reach the East and Midwest states.
Similar to all Scions, the iQ will be fitted with some impressive equipment as standard. The base model will have Pandora integration.
A GPS system will be installed on one higher trim level. Best of all, customers are able to personalize their new micro-cars, whether by boosting its performance or enhancing its look. Included in the options are carbonfiber trim, lowering springs, and subwoofers.
