The diminutive Toyota iQ and rugged Urban Cruiser, both showcased in design concept form at the Geneva motor show earlier this year, appear at the October Paris Motor Show in final production trim.
Measuring less than three metres long, the iQ is not just the world’s smallest premium four seater, it has all the dynamic and safety attributes of bigger cars. What is small about iQ is its CO2 emissions, which start at a mere 99g/km.
Importantly for a car of this size, iQ will offer 360° protection to all occupants with high levels of active and passive safety, including the world’s first curtain shield airbags installed behind the rear seats.
Another show highlight is the 1.4-litre D-4D diesel All Wheel Drive (AWD) Toyota Urban Cruiser. With its rugged exterior design, high level of safety equipment and CO2 emissions level of only 133g/km for the AWD version, the Urban Cruiser is set to bring a mix of fun and practicality to the growing urban all-roader market.
