The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Scion iQ is made for city dwellers who have trouble finding parking; others will see it as a fashion accessory or a vehicular oddity. The 2014 Toyota Prius C is the cheapest member of the Prius family, by roughly $5,000, but its gas mileage is the same 50 mpg as most other Priuses.
