The Orlando Scion iQ takes on the Fiat 500 Pop


Orlando Scion iQ vs Fiat 500


One of the biggest competitors of this popular new Scion in Orlando is definitely the new Fiat 500 Pop - they're probably two of the most well-loved options out there right now, so it's understandable that choosing between them could bring a little bit of anxiety. How do you know which is going to best suit you and your drive time needs? That's where we come in - Toyota Scion of Orlando is here to help!

Performance Capabilities
One of the biggest things to think about when you're looking for an urban auto solution is the size. Maneuverability is key in tight city streets, especially when you're searching for a parking spot!

  • The 2014 Scion iQ in Orlando is a good deal more compact than the Fiat 500 Pop; this new Scion's wheelbase is smaller than that of the Fiats (78.7 inches versus 90.6 inches).


  • The Orlando Scion iQ also has a lighter curb weight; it clocks in at 2,127 lbs; the Fiat 500 Pop easily outweighs it at 2,236 pounds. Less curb weight means more fuel efficiency and better stopping capabilities! This new Scion also boasts a tighter-tuned steering system for better maneuverability.


  • Speaking of fuel efficiency, while the new Fiat 500 Pop outdoes the Scion iQ on the highway, you'll find fuel efficiency on your side if you take to city streets or suburbia for your daily commute - this Orlando Scion gets 36 mpg in the city, versus the Fiat's 31 mpg.


  • Did we mention that the Orlando Scion iQ is available in both manual and automatic transmissions? You'll only find the Fiat 500 Pop available in a manual, leaving you little room to customize your drivetime experience.

You'll also feel a tad more secure when you're behind the wheel of this compact new Scion. It has a lot more safety technology integrated into its design, including the Star Safety System, which is unique to Toyota and Scion and not available on the Fiat 500 Pop.
