Five-Point Inspection: 2012 Scion iQ

Interior Space Sparing at Best

The car can feel cramped, which is strange because it’s really little more than a box with seats. Scion advertises four bum holders, but that doesn’t apply to the seat behind the driver unless you’ve got no limbs attached to your posterior.

There’s also a laughably little “trunk” with the seats up, but it feels smaller than a normal car’s glove compartment which, incidentally, is absent.

Folding the rear seats down makes for plenty more room, but it means removing the head rests, which in the age of stow-and-go seats is nothing short of embarrassing.
