Toyota iQ : The 4-seater micro-car

Hi Guys, so here I am, back with another illustrious automobile renaissance. This time around, I am going to showcase the Tata-Toyota’s bid to unveil a 4-seater micro car.

The Toyota iQ is a small upcoming urban car that seemed quite fuel efficient. Here I give you some spy shots of a Toyota iQ mule car that was out for testing. As with most of these spy shots, the car is disguised and doesn’t look very good, but you can still get an idea of the shape and proportions. The iQ will offer a new seat concept with 3+1 seats meaning that the iQ is roomier then it looks. Three adults and a child or some luggage should be able to sit comfortably. Thanks to a long wheelbase and almost no overhangs Toyota got the maximum of space in this little car. Also details like the flat fuel tank under the seats, a smaller heater / air condition unit and slimmer sears helps to extend the room.

Toyota has great expectations for this car and is hoping for sales figures around 100.000 the first year. And with the fuel price rising almost every day now, a small car like the iQ is a smart choice. I will keep you posted on the performance statistics of this car, as soon as I get to know them. Till then, keep reading.

    Hi – these exterior photos are of the iQ concept, first shown at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show.

    We’re happy to say that iQ is now in production and on sale in Japan and Europe – the interior shot is of the left-hand drive production car.

    It is fuel efficient – we drove one for 504.2 miles on one 32-litre tank of fuel! You can read more about it and find the full specifications at the official Toyota iQ blog.

    Simply amazing, I didn’t know this topic could be such a great read. But only a good writer can do such a stellar job. Keep it going!

    I discovered that Toyota is definitely recalling most vehicles due to acceleration malfunctions . My good friend has a Toyota, can the Toyota be driven before it’s fixed?
