For many people, convenience is the ultimate luxury. After all, convenience typically entails saving time, and for people who truly have “everything”, time is the one thing they can’t get enough of.
So, how does this play into a 2014 Scion iQ Road Test & Review? In urban driving situations, you’ll be hard pressed to find a car more convenient than the Scion iQ, Sized as it is in between the Smart ForTwo and the Mini Cooper, the Scion is one of the three easiest cars to park on the road today.
The Scion will handily fit into spaces even the Mini can’t approach, while offering a good deal more stability, security, and interior space than the Smart. If it really came down to it, you could get four people in the Scion, with each person occupying their own seat. That just ain’t gonna happen in a Smart For Two.
(Which is why it’s called the For Two—OK?)
In this case being “in-between” is a definite advantage.
In an extremely crowded urban center like downtown San Francisco or Manhattan, the Scion iQ can be something of a godsend. That said, is it a stretch to call the diminutive Scion a luxury car? In practical terms yes, it is. But if ultimate plush and convenience are what you’re after, Aston Martin has also offered a version of the Scion iQ, called the Cygnet.
