There’s a lot to say about the Scion iQ microscopic city car and, generally, most of it is bad, critic or simply comes in the form of jokes.
It’s not all unjustified, after all, it’s a cheapened, watered down version of a very small Toyota which looks rather weird and really shows its size inside.
Canadian tuner SR Auto have decided to make the Scion iQ fight back a little by giving it a makeover that’s simply spelled “aggression”.
In a bit of a weird way, it succeeded, the Scion iQ does look a lot more feisty and angry about being so small and useless as many keep deeming it to be.
The only trouble is, what’s the point. The Scion iQ no longer looks like a simplified washing machine, it now looks like an angry washing machine. It’s still not a winner.
SR Auto claim to have come up with this new body kit (front bumper, side skirts and rear bumper) and new the new alloy wheels on their own but not even that seems completely fair.
The front end bumper and new radiator grille simply reek of influences from the Nissan GTR and the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO. The alloys are 18 inch black painted units from Sparo and even they seem like we’ve seen them millions of times before.
Despite my, and a whole load of journalists and bloggers, negative reviews, SR Auto are standing by their creation and Project Pryzm, as this new Scion iQ will eventually get even more mods.
At the moment, aside from the new look the other extras of the kit include a lowered suspension and sport seats for the interior.
