The second event was Scion Hawaii’s Fresh Look that gave Scion owners and the general public a sneak peak of Scions new line up for 2011. The event took place at Fresh Cafe. The event was also emceed by Hawaii’s own Crazy Oshiro that was giving away prizes throughout the event. A scion product rep was also flown in to tell everyone about the new cars and there features. A local magician for the show “Magic Island” was also on hand blowing away everyone minds with his crazy table magic tricks. And of course how can we forget the ono food!
The newly designed 2011 Scion TC was on display, it sports not a total drastic change in looks, it still looks like a TC but the lines of the body were tweaked to give it a new fresh look.
What everyone really came to see was Scions newest addition it its line up coming in Feb 2011 was a prototype 2011 Scion IQ that was on its way to Los Angeles but it got to stop here for a short Hawaiian vacation before it is put to hard work in LA. The scion IQ is Toyotas answer to the European Smart car. When you see the IQ the first thing that comes to your mind is what the heck is that its so small, and small is right its like 90% of the car is the DOOR. Yet small and compact believe it or not you can fit 3 adults and 1 child pretty comfortably in it because of how they designed the interior. The 2011 Scion IQ is 2 ft shorter than a Toyota 3 door Yaris and built wider than a smart car so when you enter the 2011 Scion IQ’s Interior you will notice full sides front seats and you feel as if your in a Corolla. The car has a trunk if you use it as a 2 seater. The car is fitted with a 1.3 litter engine and when look in the engine bay there isn’t really anything to impressive to see as a engine.
So here is our take on Scions new line up.
The 2011 Scion TC we are glad they kept the TC looking like the original TC with minor changes to the lines of the body. Unlike how they changed the 1st gen Scion XB boxy look so drastic many were left wondering why?
The 2011 Scion IQ we thought it was a good idea because of raising gas prices. It being small and very compact we think it will fare well with the younger generation without families. We can see this car used as a second car. WE really like the idea of being able to fit 3 adults in it. As for customizing we can see this as the next fad and craze coming. It has huge potential for customizing.
