Toyota iQ3 (2010)

This underlines the fact that Toyota iQ is more than just a city runabout, giving a strong, stable and enjoyable drive at motorway speeds. Nought to 62mph can be achieved in 11.8 seconds (11.6 with Multidrive) and top speed is 106mph. The engine develops a maximum 98bhp at 6,000rpm and peak torque of 125Nm at 4,400rpm.

 This achievement is not at the expense of performance. Equipped with Toyota's new Multidrive CVT system, fuel economy is just as good, while emissions rise slightly to 120g/km, but remain within Band B. With manual transmission, Toyota iQ3 returns an official 58.9mpg in combined cycle driving, and 113g/km of CO2 - Band B for road tax (£35 annual charge) - both of which are best-in-class figures. The headline figures broadcast the exceptional customer benefits in terms of running costs.

 Benefiting from Toyota Optimal Drive technology for a class-leading combination of power, fuel economy and low emissions, it uses Dual VVT-i control of both intake and exhaust valves to deliver strong torque at low to medium engine speeds and achieve maximum efficiency. The highly efficient lightweight unit, already successfully deployed in Auris, Yaris and Urban Cruiser is offered exclusively in the new Toyota iQ3 model.  Toyota iQ range is extended for the first time since launch with the introduction to the line-up of a 1.33-litre engine.
