2014 Scion iQ vs. 2014 Scion xD Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Scion xD than the Scion iQ, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Scion iQ and the Scion xD in the front seats.

Convenience
The Scion xD requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Scion iQ, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Whether you pick the Scion iQ or the Scion xD, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Scion iQ and the Scion xD have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Scion iQ is much slimmer than the Scion xD, 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 Scion xD.

Drivetrain
The Scion iQ has much less torque than the Scion xD, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Scion iQ has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Scion xD, 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 Scion xD. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Scion iQ has less seating than the Scion xD, making the Scion xD the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Scion iQ has significantly less cargo room than the Scion xD, 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 Scion xD.
