Toyota IQ A Unique Concept


Toyota iQ is a praiseworthy and unique product with impressive dynamics. It is almost the same size as Smart, but it has four seats rather than just two seats. The reality is that it feels cramped but the driving experience it provides outweighs the smallness. Toyota's reliability and safety will give potential buyers piece of mind. The iQ is very expensive with even the base model costing over £10,000. When you can get the larger Aygo for under £9,000, you really think what is the big deal with the iQ?

The iQ is a unique and rare car. It has more length than a Smart as it aims to pack in seating for four. It is mainly aimed at young people who live in town or go about in town and want something small. The Toyota badge on this tiny car makes it reliable as it doesn't have the catchiness of a MINI, Abarth or Smart. As you would expect in any Toyota, interior quality and finish are top notch. The dash is asymmetric which allows one adult to sit behind another, once the front passenger seat is pushed right forward.

Toyota iQ comes in two engines, a 1.0 litre three cylinder petrol and a 1.33 litre petrol engine. The 0-60mph time for the 1.0 litre engine is less than 14seconds and the revvy engine is full of character. The 1.3 petrol engine is fast and performance is impressive with a 0-62mph time of 11.8 seconds but it lack the character of the 1.0 litre engine. With 9 airbags and a five star Euro NCAP rating it is very reliable. There's also the worlds-first rear window bag to protect rear seat passengers. Generally Toyota's are reliable and the iQ doesn't let you down either.


There is no doubt that iQ is a packaging marvel but the concept is flawed. It has little legroom and the front passenger seat is fitted further forwards to free up space at the back, which makes the iQ a three seater. The boot space is a mere 32 litres which is the same size as the fuel tank. If you opt for the basic version, the 1.0litre engine with a manual gearbox it will be tax free thanks to the CO2 emissions of 99g/km. It's cheap to run too with acclaimed economy of 64.2mpg. Insurance is also low on both the engines. The iQ makes a compelling choice for being an urban car.
