The Toyota iQ is a city car range that was released into the market in 2008 by the Japanese manufacturer before being discontinued in 2015. In 2008 the iQ was named the Japanese Car of the Year. The range offers a stylish and distinct exterior design that is both compact and high quality. The interior of the model holds three seats, but the rear seat only holds space for a child size person, so the car is ideally designed for couples or solo drivers. The transverse engined feature means that there is more space in the cabin so that the driver can enjoy a comfortable drive. The range is also available with a choice of petrol or diesel engine, offered with different power outputs. The 1.4 litre diesel motor is a favourite choice, delivering good economy and a decent performance at low cost. In all, the Toyota iQ is a compact range that offers a distinctive design, unique interior and an efficient diesel engine.
