The 2012 Scion iQ is an all-new model, so we can't say about its safety. But it does have an astonishing eleven standard airbags—including driver and front passenger knee bags, and a world-first rear-window bag—as well as standard stability control and ABS.

And while U.S. ratings aren't yet out from either of the major testing agencies, we do find the iQ's five-star Euro NCAP ratings—including a better score in adult occupant protection than the Volkswagen Polo—to be very promising.

As the Smart Fortwo has shown, you don't need size and mass to offer good occupant protection; however, commuters should be aware that lighter vehicles are at a disadvantage in multiple-vehicle accidents.


The 2012 Scion iQ is a true minicar, but it's packed with big-car safety features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
