The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
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 Yaris is built for city commuting, but on highways it reveals some major weak spots.
