2014 Scion IQ vs 2014 FIAT 500 near Norfolk, VA

The 2014 Scion IQ is a vehicle with an exquisite exterior design, but lacks the space needed to be a viable option for most people expecting to drive more than two passengers. The FIAT 500 delivers performance, fuel efficiency, and European engineering and handling. Read more about these vehicles in our vehicle review.

2014 Scion IQ Power & Handling

Powered by a 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 94 horsepower, the 2014 Scion iQ comes with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for smooth acceleration and excellent fuel efficiency. Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) helps with engine efficiency so the iQ requires less fuel and produces fewer emissions. Combined with its light curb weight of 2,127 pounds, the three-door hatchback earns an impressive EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 36 mpg city, 37 mpg highway and 37 mpg combined ratings.

2014 FIAT 500 Power & Handling

The Fiat 500 Turbo features a single turbocharger, twin intercoolers, and a sport-tuned exhaust to deliver 34 percent more power (135 vs. 101 horsepower) and 53 percent more torque (150 vs. 98 lb.-ft.) compared to the Fiat 500's naturally aspirated 1.4-liter MultiAir engine. In addition, a track-proven C510 five-speed manual transmission offers an intermediate shaft with equal-length half shafts to mitigate torque steer. The 2014 Fiat 500 and 500c deliver 31 mile per gallon (mpg) city and 40 mpg highway with the innovative 1.4-liter MultiAir engine and five-speed C514 manual transmission.

2014 Scion IQ Features & Design

The functional "3+1" offset seating arrangement allows one adult to sit behind the front passenger and a child or small package behind the driver. Slim front seats optimize rear legroom, while even the standard leather-wrapped steering wheel contributes to extra space with a flat bottom for additional thigh room. When it comes to cargo, the rear seats have the ability to fold flat or create a 50/50 split. With the seats down, the cargo area can accommodate large suitcases. Additional on-the-go connectivity and on-board navigation is available with the optional BeSpoke Audio system.

2014 FIAT 500 Features & Design

Inside, the Fiat 500 Turbo features sport-styled seating, performance-designed leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel accented with Argento (silver) stitching and Grigio/Nero (gray/black) seating and interior environment. For an even more higher-end look, heated leather seating in Nero/Nero (black/black) or vivid Rosso/Nero (red/black) is available. In addition, the interior on the 2014 FIAT 500 is connected with BLUE&ME handsfree communication technology with USB port, eco:Drive application and iPod control capability to keep drivers connected to what matters while keeping their eyes on the road.

Conclusions

With the Blue&Me handsfree communication technology and USB port, the 2014 FIAT 500 surpasses the 2014 Scion IQ in interior technology and connectivity. Material quality is another area in which the FIAT 500 shines. City driving is the Scion's specialty though with just a 1 MPG falloff from the highway fuel economy.
