2012 Scion iQ - Name That Exhaust Note, Episode 112 - CAR and DRIVER

On Tuesday, we posted an audio recording of a mystery car's exhaust note. To hear it again, click play above. No one who commented figured out that this week's sound came from the 2012 Scion iQ, but that's probably because the car was trying to trick you. Fun fact: The iQ has a CVT, so those "shifts" you heard in the recording weren't gear changes. The transmission mimics one with actual gears by cutting throttle, which actually impedes acceleration. Those of you who noted that the iQ sounded slow were correct, however; it sure is.

Like that sound? Download the MP3 and quiz your friends, make your own ringtone, or just lull yourself to sleep with sweet, sweet vehicular ear candy.
