revolutionary iQ, the world's smallest four-seat passenger car,
will adopt Toyota's 99bhp 1.33-litre Dual VVT-i engine from
Toyota Optimal Drive technology and equipped with the
economy-boosting Stop & Start system, the new engine will give
iQ combined cycle fuel consumption of 58.9mpg and CO2 emissions
of 113g/km, using the standard six-speed manual transmission.
Toyota's seamless Multidrive transmission will also be
available, giving 55.4mpg and 120g/km (mpg and CO2 figures
provisional, subject to final homologation).
In spite of its
compact dimensions, iQ has been designed to offer the highest
levels of occupant protection and is fitted as standard with a
comprehensive range of active and passive safety equipment and
pedestrian impact protection. The performance of these and the
effectiveness of the iQ's multi-load path body structure have
been proven in independent Euro NCAP crash testing, earning the
car a top five-star safety rating.
