At the recent launch of the second-generation 2011 tC, Scion reps let slip that the youth-brand's next model, the iQ, will hit dealerships in March.

Touted as the smallest four-seater in the world. At just 120-inches long it is roughly one-foot longer than the Smart fortwo. Saying it's a 4-seater is a bit of a stretch, however, and Scion does qualify that it's more of a 3+1, with the "1" being a child.

Referred to by Scion as a "premium micro sub compact" the iQ is powered by a 1.3-liter 4-cylinder and gets a CVT transmission. No performance or fuel economy numbers are available, but Scion says to expect fuel economy in the high-30 mpg range.

Safety features will also be big on this small car with standard abs, vehicle stability control traction control and 10 airbags – including a world's first rear window curtain airbag.

Qnd keeping with Scion's youth-oriented approach with a six-speaker audio system, USB and auxiliary ports, as well as steering wheel mounted controls.

Can't wait to test drive this one.

Hopefully Scion Canada will host some sort of PR event to introduce it to the public.
