2010 Toyota IQ

Sunday, June 14th, 2009 | In Great Cars Series |

Toyota is launching a thrifty Earth friendly micro car called IQ. This morning I was received an email from my friend about the future new Toyota IQ. In my first impression on the photos, I thought it was Perodua Myvi but obviously It was the new series of micro car car from Toyota.

This new design of the micro car is really unique from Toyota. Though it is going to be designed for Europe and Japan, where the Toyota IQ could come stateside with Scion badges to help consumer cope with soaring fuel prices and growing urban congestion. This micro car was billed as an “Intelligent solution to urban transport”, the Toyota IQ was designed at Toyota’s ED2 studio in southern France, but will be built in Japan starting late this year.

According to the Toyota’s official website, Toyota hopes to sell 100k in year 2009. Europe and Japan are the intended markets, but Toyota IQ is being whispered for U.S. sales as a 2010 model. In term of the full specifications; Toyota has not yet to disclose, but says the Toyota IQ will initially offer a choice of two gasoline engines, likely a 3-cylinder and 4-cylinder and a small diesel.

Toyota also points to several space-saving innovations for this micro car. Starting with a smaller front differential that allows optimal power train positioning in concert with a new “center-point” steering gear. A compact flat fuel tank tucks safely beneath the rear floor. In turn, allowed using a slim-line dashboard/ center console that sweeps away so front occupants can sit further forward without being cramped. The heating/ air conditioning components were also redesigned to be less intrusive without compromising function.

Below are some photos I received from my email.
