The Toyota iQ is a brilliant option for those who want something a bit quirkier than standard city hatchback models. Compact and agile, the iQ has been built specifically with the busy urban environment in mind, which makes it perfect for city-based businesses as well as learners and first-time car owners.
One of the best features of the iQ is how easy it is to park. Given the compact dimensions you will have no problem squeezing it into the tiniest of spaces. 15-inch alloy wheels as standard, while the “iQ2” trim sees a high-gloss finish that adds to the sense of style.
Inside, the iQ is one of the only small superminis to include a rear curtain airbag, which makes it one of the safest cars in its class. The boot space is minimal, but this can be extended significantly by lowering the rear seats when more space is required.
The entry-level 1.0-litre engine offers 67bhp but that doesn’t mean it isn’t exciting, as you will be able to achieve 62mph in second gear. If you want more punch we would suggest the 1.33-litre 98bhp option, which offers a respectable 0-60mph time of 13.1 seconds. Sub-99g/km CO2 emissions also exempt the vehicle from Vehicle Excise Duty and the London Congestion Charge.
