2014 Scion iQ Monogram Series offers limited-edition charm

Arriving in dealerships this October, the 2014 Scion iQ Monogram Series adds a bit of visual distinction to the smallest member of the Scion family. To be built in a run of just 150 units, the Scion iQ Monogram Series features a two-tone paint treatment that pairs Black Currant Metallic over Classic Silver Metallic set off by color-keyed exterior mirrors and rear spoiler. A set of premium 16-inch alloy wheels in place of the standard steel units completes the list of exterior revisions while the Monogram Series-specific cabin upgrades are confined to a set of custom floor mats that feature an iQ logo.

Like all 2014 Scion models - and all 2013s produced after August 1 -- the iQ Monogram Series also boasts a new standard Scion Display Audio System that features a 6.1-inch LCD touchscreen, AM/FM/CD/HD Radio, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and AUX/USB ports with iPod connectivity. All 2014 Scions also will be available with a new optional Scion BeSpoke Premium Audio system featuring Aha that includes GPS navigation services, integration with a host of social media apps, smartphone-compatible access to 30,000 audio stations as well as a bespoke Scion station with 17 music channels.

The 2014 Scion iQ Monogram Series will arrive in showrooms this October. Pricing starts at $17,275 -- an $855 bump over the base iQ model - and upgrading from the new standard Display Audio system to the BeSpoke premium package will add another $1,198 to that amount.
