Toyota iQ 130G+.jpg

Toyota IQ (KGJ10/NGJ10). 2008 to date (prod. n/a). 3-door sedan. F/F, 998 cm³ (I3 DOHC), 1329 cm³ (I4 DOHC), 1364 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC). Toyota gets radical. Clever, commodious subcompact car, looking at first glance like a Smart rival, but seats three plus one with some models thanks to wide body (1,680 mm). Designed by Toyota’s Nice R&D department. Officially badged iQ, with a lowercase i, apeing other consumer products. Short, but safe (five NCAP stars). Expectedly, not the best handling thanks to its height, but very refined. Fairly pricey compared with more conventional machines. Formed the basis of some very exclusive machinery, namely the Aston Martin Cygnet.

Manufacturing location: Japan

Marque: Toyota
