Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Forte Koup than the Scion iQ, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Forte Koup will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Scion iQ.

Convenience
With the Kia Forte Koup 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 Kia Forte Koup.

In this case, the Scion iQ will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Kia Forte Koup.
