2014 Scion iQ vs. 2014 Honda CR-Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Scion iQ, drivers may find the Honda CR-Z a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Honda CR-Z you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Scion iQ, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Scion iQ is clearly a better financial choice over the Honda CR-Z. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Scion iQ will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Honda CR-Z.

Dimensions
Since the Scion iQ is much slimmer than the Honda CR-Z, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Scion iQ, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda CR-Z.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Scion iQ doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda CR-Z.

Handling
The Scion iQ has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Honda CR-Z, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Scion iQ is significantly less powerful than the Honda CR-Z. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Scion iQ offers greater seating capacity than the Honda CR-Z, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Scion iQ has significantly less cargo room than the Honda CR-Z, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Scion iQ comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda CR-Z.
