http://www.autobytel.com/scion/iq/2012/ The 2012 Scion iQ is known as a micro car or a sub sub-compact car. Previously the Smart car was the only micro car available in America but now the iQ and even the Fiat 500 are now available for purchase. In fact the Scion iQ has the best combined fuel economy from any gas only powered car on the road today at 36 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on the highway. This car was designed to be the ideal city car the fuel economy in the city really enforces that point.
The 2012 Scion iQ costs $15,265 which is a few thousand above the Smart car but for the extra money you get so much more in return. The iQ comes standard with power windows and doors, a booming Pioneer Radio and CD player, Bluetooth, HD radio, air conditioning, and more. The steering wheel that is not only wrapped in leather but has radio controls integrated into it. Heck the 2012 Scion iQ even comes with 16 inch rims.
The engine on the 2012 Scion iQ is a 1.3 liter 4-cylinder motor that makes 94 horsepower and 89 lb-ft. of torque. While this may not seem like very much power its important to note that the low curb weight (2127 lbs) makes for a peppy little car. The power is transferred to the front wheels through a CVT transmission which aids in the fuel economy department.

2014 Scion tC Test Drive and Compact Car Video Review
When the Scion brand debuted as a 2004 model year, the goal was to target a
younger car buying crowd with affordable and stylish vehicles. Fast forward
almost a decade and Scion is still at the forefront with vehicles like the

undergone a handful of changes most notably on the exterior. The base model
Scion tC with manual transmission starts at $19,200 and the top of the line
Anniversary Edition is $22,440.
Research the 2014 Scion tC
If you are looking for a cool new car that is styled like a sport car then
look no further than the 2014 Scion tC. Scion updated and restyled the tC
with a whole new front end consisting of: new hood, new lights, LED's, new
front fascia all in an effort to resemble the FR-S. The wheels are standard
18-inch machine-finished alloys. Out back the rear tail lights are LED and
the rear bumper is designed to also look like the FR-S.
The 2014 Scion tC is loaded and for only $20k you get a ton of great
features. First of all you get A/C, cruise control, power everything, and a

torque. The transmission options are a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed
automatic and fuel economy is 23 MPG in the City and 31 MPG on the highway

the car even more fun, Scion has retuned the electric steering and the

2012 Scion xD Test Drive and Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/scion/xd/2012/ The 2012 Scion xD is a car that has
been marketed to the younger generation since its inception. But the xD is
more than just a sub-compact teenager car. Instead the Scion xD is
affordably priced, it gets solid fuel economy, it looks good, and comes
packed with a ton of standard features and options; making it an appealing
vehicle for a broad spectrum of car buyers. And the best part if the 2012
Scion xD only costs $15,345.
The best thing about the Scion line-up is that all the vehicles they make
are pretty hip and sporty. They all drive well and get excellent fuel
economy. The second best thing about the Scion brand is that they are a no
non-sense company. Meaning they offer one trim level per vehicle. So the
Honda Accord or Ford F-150 for instance can have up to 30 different trim
levels. Not so with the 2012 Scion xD. There is one model available with
either a manual or automatic transmission. From there you can add on tons
of options for the engine, suspension, interior, and exterior. Toyota
Racing Development (TRD) makes tons of parts for the Scion xD which can be
ordered directly through the dealership. Want a cool performance Exhaust or sport air filter? TRD makes those.
Want to lower your ride and add stiffer suspension components? No problem
as those can be bought and installed from any Scion dealership. The options
for exterior, interior, and performance modifications are numerous. In the
end you can have a very unique automobile right from the factory.
The 2012 Scion xB is powered by a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine that produces
128 horsepower and
125 lb-ft. of torque. Not a whole lot but this is a sub-compact car and it
does not take much to get it going. Also remember the xD is quite
inexpensive so you cannot expect to have a high powered motor. The small
engine makes for great fuel economy with the 2012 Scion xD netting 27 MPG
in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. The Scion xD comes standard with
many great features like air conditioning, power everything, cruise
control, keyless entry, a Pioneer audio system, Bluetooth, and HD radio.
The 2012 Scion xD is also very safe getting top ratings in 12 of the 13

2012 Fiat 500 Abarth Test Drive & Sub-Compact Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/fiat/500/2012/abarth/ The 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth
comes packing a turbocharged motor that
delivers a heaping amount of torque at low RPM's which allows the driver to
get off the line quick. The suspension is stiffer and the exterior is more
aggressive. The Fiat 500 Abarth is a sub-compact car that is a total blast
to drive. The MSRP on a 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth is $22,000.
Back in the 1950's Carlo Abarth used Fiat vehicles as race cars. These
little automobiles were very successful racers and Carlo Abarth ventured
out making high performance parts for Fiat vehicles. Fiat then bought out
Abarth in 1971 and designated that name for their racing department. Fast
forward to 2012 and we have a potent little rocket in the Fiat 500 Abarth.
Differentiating the Abarth from a more mundane Fiat 500 is easy. The Abarth
model will carry with it the signature scorpion badges that Abarth is known
for. Other styling ques include an Abarth sport stripe, performance front
bumper, twin Exhaust, 2-piece rear
fascia, rear spoiler, and 17-inch rims. On the inside the 2012 Fiat Abarth
treats the driver to high performance sport seats, a flat-bottom steering
wheel, aluminum pedals, Boost gauge,
Bose sound system, and more.
It's the performance aspect that sets the 2012 Fiat Abarth apart from the
rest of the pack. Then engine is a turbocharged 16-valve 1.4 liter 4-cylinder that
makes 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of
torque. The power control module makes sure the Abarth is operating at peak
performance while in Sport mode. The car still manages to get 28 MPG in the
city and 34 MPG on the highway too! The wheels are wrapped in sticky
Pirelli P Zero tires for additional stick. Suspension wise the 2012 Fiat
500 Abarth features stiffer springs and KONI shocks for added handling
performance. The steering is quicker and more responsive thanks to a tuned
system calibrated around the electric power steering unit. The brakes are
larger rotors to take care of any spirited driving needs.
The 2012 Fiat Abarth is full of personality and it drives around like an
angry little car looking for a fight. This is great for the driver that
wants a fun and sporty sub-compact car. The turbocharged engine provides plenty of motivation
while the suspension is capable of handling the twisties. As an added bonus
all Fiat 500 Abarth buyers will get to experience a personalized Abarth
Track Experience which include track instruction with a professional

time to match whits with the Scion iQ. In this Scion iQ Review video
(nicknamed the Caitlan Dance Party), Caitlan unleashes some girl power on
Scion's pint-size city car. And, Caitlan's one powerful girl — a
mulit-lingual Process Engineer for one of the world's leading car seat
manufacturers. When it comes to being the eyes and ears for her viewers,
she doesn't mess around and never misses a detail.
Caitlan's CarMatch Code is: F D C U 4. That means, when she's shopping for
a car, her top priorities are:
F = Fun to Drive. As a Fiat 500 Abarth driver, clearly she likes a car she
can throw into the corners.
D = Design. She definitely has a soft spot for "cute." And, she might even
mention that once or twice
C = Luxury and Craftsmanship rounds out the top three.
When it comes to personal style, Caitlan's a U = Unique and Individualistic
Lastly, when it comes to passengers, while her code says 4, upon further
investigation Caitlan's clearly satisfied with a two seater.

FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Fiat is returning to the U.S. after a 27-year absence -- a move facilitated
by its new relationship with Chrysler -- offering the diminutive 500 as its
first new offering. Combining European style and heritage with a starting
price of $16,000, the 2012 Fiat 500 bridges the gap between the sportier,
pricier Mini Cooper and the more pedestrian Toyota Yaris.

The Toyota iQ looks funky, fits in tight parking spots and is nimble in
town. It's well equipped, cheap to run, and emissions are low, too.
You have to choose between rear passengers or boot space and it's not cheap
for its size. The interior plastics are rather dour and it struggles a bit
on faster roads.
