2011 Toyota iQ Update

2011 Toyota iQ Update

The lovely little Toyota iQ received a subtle upgrade for the new year, which gives it better interior and cleaner powertrains.

While the body remains the same as before, the interior gets a new gray theme with contrasting black upper trims on the doors and toning fabric upholstery.

The new cabin colour-way is available with Eclipse Black, Pearl White, Island Blue and Tyrol Silver exterior finishes, while the established plum interior will continue to be offered with Deep Amethyst, Chilli Red and Decuma Grey. Other upgrades include soft-touch materials and the “manta ray” motif panels on the door and centre console adopt a new black finish.

As an option, customers can select Kuru black leather upholstery on models with the new grey interior.

The 1.0-litre VVT-i and 1.33-litre Dual VVT-i Toyota Optimal Drive petrol engines that power the iQ are also improved in terms of emissions so they can cover the mandatory Euro 5 standards. They are now rated at 99g/km and 113g/km of CO2 respectively. The power output has not changed.

The new iQ has a starting price of £10,158.
