Scion IQ, Plenty Room To Spare @ Brick Paved Wayne Avenue

A solution to your parking problems in Rogers No Park

            Toyota Scion recently came up with its own teeny tiny car (not as small as the Fortwo but close), the IQ in 2012. The Car and Driver article says that four people could wedge themselves into this conveyance, another article says it is technically a three seater.. (There is a rear window air bag in case you are wondering) It weighs just over a ton, has a 1.3 liter engine with 94 horsepower, billed as a "premium micro subcompact". Best quote from the Car and Driver article "Scion says the iQ will run from 0 to 60 mph in 11.8 seconds, but a better estimate might be a week." List price is just under 16 thousand dollars. Side note - the UK three wheeler Peel P50 is the world's smallest car is in production again and is street legal (it fits in elevators, you could drive it to your desk),
