Toyota iQ review

The Toyota iQ is an little package which certainly find a home in Oz.

Barnwell road tests and the Toyota iQ.

Our big cities are going the way but we still have a big car mindset it’s silly really. We drove Toyota ‘s petrol iQ city car in Germany and left wondering why it hasn’t it to Oz.

Price is probably the reason the 3.0 metre long iQ 1.3 three and a seater sells for about the of $16,000 on the road in Europe and isn’t willing to cannibalise sales here. Pity the iQ is a terrific little car.

The 1.3 litre engine is a twin cam with variable valve to generate a handy 72kW/98Nm and use a mere 5.0-litres/100km. The car we drove had a CVT which makes it even in the city. Naturally, we took it on the expecting to be run off the road that the case at all.

We were in the fast lane on unrestricted whizzing along at 180kmh, a at which the speed limiter in. It was a bit weird to be going so fast in so small but there were no at all, we could have in a car twice the size given the way it and stayed on track. Of course, 180 fast enough for many drivers who whistled up behind us and put on the blinker- code for get out of the way.

We had no preconceptions about it but were impressed by the ride and handling and the feel. You’d expect this short to buck and all over the place. Not so, it rides a Corolla

and has sharper dynamics to the wheel at each corner Though diminutive in dimensions, the iQ is designed to provide plenty of for two, three at a pinch to the asymmetrical dash which the passenger to sit more forward the driver.

We decided to venture off one of the autobahns the German countryside where the iQ even handier especially we got lost and had to double back on winding mountain roads. little Toyota turns in its own length and we even tried it two closely spaced walls a farm complex no problem, one pointer was all it took. We stopped in a country village for a coffee and at 90 degrees to the footpath because we and the spot was right out the front of the The black forest cake was enough to keep us going for a day or two the small fuel tank in the iQ was for it to run possibly 500km.

Toyota used many tricks to optimise interior in iQ such as the compact aircon/heater flat fuel tank, shock absorbers and skinny seats. You don’t feel you are in a tiny car once you are in it and driving. But the is extremely small unless you the rear seat. It gets a star crash rating in part to nine airbags and control. The cute little door comes out of a Japanese and has a funky but fairly Spartan Our test drive car featured the satnav with traffic very handy.

The Toyota iQ is an impressive little which could certainly a home in Oz. It’s much than the Smart for Two in every and though tiny, looks purposeful and certainly not laughable.
