Have you been on the hunt for a car that’s a perfect urban solution? If so, then you should definitely check out our new Scion in Orlando! This innovative family has a ton of options that are perfect for work and play in a city setting, and none more so than the 2014 Scion iQ. This diminutive subcompact hatchback offers you an affordable solution to all of your urban drive time needs, and it’s one of the most popular members of the family!
This new Scion in Orlando is a fierce competitor!
However, it’s definitely not without competition. There are a ton of other subcompact hatchbacks out on the market right now, and they seem to grow in popularity with each passing year. One of this new Scion’s biggest competitors right now is definitely the new Fiat 500 Pop, another subcompact option that lends an urban solution for drivers. How do the two compare? We’re taking a closer look – we think you’ll be surprised to see who comes out on top!
The Orlando Scion iQ outmaneuvers the Fiat 500 Pop with ease
Driving in the city requires a compact option that has a large degree of maneuverability, and you’ll find exactly that in the 2014 Scion iQ in Orlando. It’s about 12 inches shorter than the Fiat 500 Pop when it comes to the wheelbase, making it easier to fit into those tight parking spots and weave through dense city traffic. The Scion subcompact is also available in both manual and automatic – you’ll only find its Fiat competition in a manual option.
- You’ll also find a lighter curb weight at play – the Orlando Scion iQ boasts a curb weight of 2,127 lbs while the Fiat 500 Pop is a bit heavier at 2,236 lbs. This plays directly into fuel efficiency!
- While the Fiat option offers a higher mpg on the highway, you’ll find that this new Scion has more to offer in the city. It gets 36 mpg, while its Fiat competitor only gets 31 mpg. If your commute is mostly city or suburban, you’ll appreciate the difference!
- How about safety? You know you’re getting the best of the best when it comes to the Scion option – it comes standard with the Star Safety System, which includes elements that the Fiat 500 Pop lacks, such as smart stop technology, brake assist, and electronic brake force distribution! Plus, it boasts driver’s AND front passenger’s knee airbags (the Fiat option only has knee airbags for the driver), as well as a first aid kit stocked with supplies for minor bumps and bruises.
- Finally, the new Scion iQ is actually cheaper than the Fiat 500 Pop. It kicks off at just $15,665, while its Fiat competition starts out almost $500 more expensive at $16,195! Why not take the savings and add on some cool accessories or custom parts?
