The revolutionary Toyota iQ, the world's smallest four-seat passenger car, will adopt Toyota's 99bhp (100 DIN hp) 1.33-litre Dual VVT-i engine from July 2009.

Benefiting from Toyota Optimal Drive technology and equipped with the economy-boosting Stop & Start system, the new engine will give the Toyota 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, the Toyota 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 Toyota 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.
