2012 Scion iQ

Don't let the size fool you! The emerging micro vehicle segment enters the market with cars sporting both modern design and innovative features. The Scion iQ, the Mini Cooper and the Fiat 500 all have outstanding fuel efficiency and resulting low total fuel costs, but when the results were analyzed, the Scion iQ earned top honors with ownership costs that were about 3% lower than expected, with a low depreciation rate being a key contributor to its success. 

Cost-of-Ownership Compared to Segment Averages

The Vincentric Best Value in America awards are based on the model level average of all trim levels within the model. Ownership costs for each trim level are measured at annual mileages of 10,000, 15,000, and 20,000.
