Expert Quotes:

"Good" in front, side, and roof tests
IIHS

Four stars overall
NHTSA




The 2013 Scion iQ receives Good ratings, the highest level, from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for moderate-overlap front crash, side impact, and roof strength tests. It has not been rated for the new small-impact front crash test. Its rear crash protection, however, is rated only Acceptable.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Scion iQ four stars out of five for an overall rating. It earned four stars for frontal crash and rollover testing, and three stars out of five on side impact.

The littlest Scion comes with a big total of 11 airbags as standard—including driver and front passenger knee bags, and a world-first rear-window bag—along with standard stability control and ABS. As the Smart Fortwo showed several years ago, you don't need size and mass to offer good occupant protection.

That said, however, buyers should be aware that the laws of physics still apply: Lighter vehicles are at a disadvantage against heavier vehicles in multiple-vehicle accidents.

Conclusion

The 2013 Scion iQ comes with big-car safety features and plenty of airbags, and has good crash ratings, especially for its size.

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.
