The 2011 Scion iQ has just been luanched and already it has received its first customization program. The program comes from none other than Five Axis, who presented a couple of customizations for Scion at this year’s 2010 New York Auto Show. The Five Axis Scion iQ was parked right next to the standard iQ.

The customized version is painted in a pearl bismuth silver accented with black chrome titled Titanium. The interior not only gets custom leather-trimmed seats and door inserts, but it also has Little John’s Interior Concepts and custom floor mats provided by Chilewich. The car sits on 18" Yokohama wheels.

As part of the North American debut of the all-new 2011 Scion iQ premium micro-subcompact car, Five Axis has created a special iQ show car for display at the 2010 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). Five Axis’ iQ show car demonstrates the personal customization synonymous with all Scions.
Elegance and sophistication were the primary influences for the iQ show car. This is evident with its unique exterior color called Titanium, consisting of pearl bismuth silver that is accented with black chrome.

It’s not impressive nor cool, but it is so awful for me. Sorry to say but it is my own opinion. They are right that the bumper is too big. I can’t even see the elegance and sophistication though it is really unique.

The bumper of the car is quite big. In my opinion, it does not show any sophistication but rather roughness though I like the interior leather of the car. Well, it is a good thing that it can still be customized because of the program Scion is offering.

elegance and sophistication were the primary influences for the iQ showcar I think "Death and devastation" were the primary influences. I guess some enjoy pimped up rolling coffins.

Best looking mini-compact to date as far as I’m concerned. This will bring much needed attention to the very BORING Scion line. Hopefully the production version lives up to the challenge.

Another cool custom design by five axis, but I noticed that it has the same look and style with the toyota.

Good thing that they’ve revamped the IQ. The first generation of IQ looks so boring and no life.

KUDOS to five axis, they’ve really made the IQ more aggressive and sporty small vehicle. I really like what they did on the LED under the fron bumper.
