Here’s a hint… it is being billed as the world’s smallest four-seat vehicle at just 10 feet, it is only a little more than a foot longer than the Smart ForTwo; but it’s as wide as some compacts to make it feel more substantial on the road.

Under the hood, it has a peppy 1.3-liter, 96-horsepower engine good for a top speed of 100mph. It’s extremely fun to drive, has a smooth, quiet continuously variable transmission, and it has a turning radius of less than 13 feet.

The front passenger seat is positioned ahead of the driver’s seat in order to create more legroom for the backseat passenger. To maximize front legroom even more, there is no glove box. It is replaced by a sliding plastic tray under the seat.

The car’s 8½-gallon gas tank is positioned under the driver, instead of the car’s rear, which is actually quite common. To try to handle the safety issues that are sure to arise, this vehicle has 11 airbags, which is the most of any model.

Last chance to guess…………..

It’s the Toyota Scion iQ.

The Scion iQ goes on sale in the fall, starting on the West Coast and gradually rolling out to the rest of the country. Priced at just $15,995, the Scion iQ is among the cheapest cars in the US market.

If you are interested in getting around in this tiny four seat vehicle, please stop by one of Penske’s 18 Scion dealerships around the country.  We would be happy to show you this “up and coming” 2012 model.
