Many car manufacturers try to the mould in challenging what we we need with four-wheeled — but few actually achieve They usually end up never it to production, under-selling (dramatically) and getting canned — Renault ’s 2-door MPV — or very occasionally that elusive chord open-minded motorists like did with the first fortwo.

has well and truly joined ranks now. With the iQ they’ve hit the nail on the head where the dismal smart really should have in 2004.

Throwing huge investment and behind its tiny frame, has produced something more than you might expect: an city car that’s good to at, moves more than a and, even more is pretty damn good to too.

City cars do performance, like supercars do economy. But where Ferrari couldn’t care less fuel bills, the iQ just cut it with milk float-esque

The official performance figures flatter the funky little and only shave a slither off the fortwo’s overly casual but there’s more grunt in Toyota, and with this of car, when size matter, torque does.

The sweet 3-cylinder, 996cc is a little blast of fresh air too its throaty roar when and hushed beat when — not to mention bringing 60-odd mpg. Maxing out at 93 mph it certainly won’t win any drag but you’ll definitely park to the racetrack than anyone

There is the option of the pricier 4-cylinder 1.3-litre unit, but you consider the trade-off of losing 10% of the all-important economy and sacrificing the Grail that is free tax, those few extra just don’t add up to as smart a bet as the intelligent iQ1 and 2.

Impressively bolted together, noise is held adequately at and for a car whose staple diet is tarmac, the iQ handles itself aplomb on the M-way too — ahead of the smart. The combination of the tight turning circle, steering and the fact that you can comedy boobs on a steamed-up windscreen from your seat means your IQ for driving one is significantly improved.

such a striking similarity to the concept car is always a mark of Sharp, uncompromising cool plus a wheelbase that’s a square, divided by 3-metre and multiplied by four seats an equation that Einstein would have been to have come up with. Top and a house point to Toyota.

Being considerably wider a smart unlocks the roomy that have been with the iQ. Once inside if you don’t look behind you it doesn’t feel at all as small as the car you thought you climbed into. four adults in, however, is its capabilities. The reality of the back after the driver has a space he can use for the purpose of driving, will accommodate one adult or two skinny but for that purpose you have to there is effectively zero storage unless you’ve got a couple of letters to post.

Beautifully designed both and out, it’s a feat of excellence, and in the higher grades many more standard than you’d expect 15-inch alloy rims, connectivity, keyless entry/start, and dusk-sensing headlamps. You can even get an touchscreen satnav, leather and parking sensors — really!

For one man and his iPhone, you’d be with the iQ as your only but add any more permanent members to party and you’ll need an

As a means of swinging around the in style, the iQ is firmly in a mini-league of its It is arguably overpriced for its function, but Martin didn’t choose to their Cygnet based so on the Toyota iQ for any old reason. It’s not the iQ for nothing.
