Street Toyota Scion brings the iQ to the area and expects for it to sale well.

We are really excited about this new style of car,” David Walker, Scion Manager said. “It’s like nothing we’ve had before.

Street Toyota Scion of Amarillo, Texas is launching the new Scion iQ this quarter and it expects for it to sell well in the Panhandle.

The Scion iQ first arrived to Amarillo in January and sold quickly because the iQ’s that arrived were pre-ordered. Currently there is only one iQ in stock. However, more Scion iQ vehicles are to arrive in the latter part of February and early March.

“We are really excited about this new style of car,” David Walker, Scion Manager said. “It’s like nothing we’ve had before.”

The design of the car is a lot smaller than any Scion on the market right now. It is nearly three feet shorter than the 2012 Yaris 3-door, 14 inches longer than a Smart car and is two feet shorter than the Mini Cooper. The back seat is also bigger than the Mini Cooper’s back seat.

People have been waiting for the iQ to arrive in North America because the iQ sold very well in Asia and in Europe. In addition to the unique style the iQ will save people a lot of money on gasoline.

“Small cars are now the biggest sellers in the market,” Walker said. “They are great for cities with traffic because of its size.”

Street Toyota in Amarillo, Texas was established in 1982. A new 58,000 square foot facility on 9 acres is now open at 45th and Soncy. This is a state of the art facility and the customer's comfort has been emphasized from the ample parking right down to the gourmet coffee. Street Toyota is the first dealer in west Texas to become Signature Certified.

They provide support to area nonprofit organizations such as United Way, Better Business Bureau, Amarillo Adult Literacy, Harrington Cancer Center, Meals on Wheels, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Amarillo Symphony, Amarillo Museum of Art, Amarillo Little Theater, Lone Star Ballet, Discovery Center, Globe News Center for the Performing Arts, CACHA (Hispanic Chamber of Commerce) and many other organizations.
