HERE’S plenty to exercise the mind when it comes to Toyota’s iQ city car. This tiny four-seater will leave many a motorist scratching their head. What’s it for? How does it perform? Is this downsizing gone mad? More to the point, why does it cost the same as a Ford Fiesta? Well the answer appears to be Toyota’s belief in a new breed of driver who wants to be seen to be green and trendy and is not afraid to say they have the money to do so. Certainly, the iQ is clever. It also has many big car features and its real claim to fame is being Toyota’s greenest normally powered model. While Toyota’s hybrid petrol/electric Prius may have CO2 emissions of just 89g/km, the three-cylinder, 996cc iQ also escapes road tax at 99g/km. Fuel economy is an average of 65.7mpg and it is surprisingly good fun to drive. On paper it looks a slouch with a 0-60 acceleration time of some 14.5 seconds and a top speed of 93mph. On the road it’s a different story and the engine is on the nippy side. It’s the same one as Toyota uses in the slightly bigger Aygo and has plenty of get up and go if required. Despite the small proportions, the iQ doesn’t leave you feeling exposed and lacking on the motorway. It’s also sharp and composed when it comes to handling – there is no question of the car feeling unstable. To hammer home the point, traction control and electronic stability devices are fitted as standard – as are nine airbags to offer maximum protection. The restraint system even includes a rear window curtain airbag – a first, and one of the devices which have helped the iQ gain top marks in the NCAP safety tests. The iQ is little bigger than a smart car at just over 9ft 6ins long and less than five feet wide which suggests parking should be a doddle. However, large rear side pillars, miniscule back side windows and huge head restraints on the back seat make reversing a challenge. In the front, space is fine but forget the four seater claim. Getting passengers in to the back means the front seats have to be slid forward to uncomfortable positions. All four seats can be used for short distances but any long haul journey is unthinkable. Luggage space is lamentable at just 32 litres with all seats in place. The space behind the tailgate

CLEAN MACHINE: The new iQ2 has many big car features and is Toyota’s greenest normally powered model

Common sense – or just a sky high iQ! is deep and narrow and wouldn’t accommodate a shopping bag. Drop the rear seats and there is a much more usable 242 litres available which is what you would expect in an average supermini. Put up with these compromises and the iQ’s attributes start to fall into place. As well as stability control, the mid-range iQ2 comes with climate control, automatic headlamps and wipers, remote central locking and trip computer all as standard for £10,615 – £1,000 more than the basic iQ. There are also steering wheel mounted controls for the audio system, a gearshift indicator and a rev counter. Go for the optional sat-nav system and you have a little car

fitted out almost to the same specification as an executive model – but then you will be paying the best part of £12,000 for the whole package. Toyota knows it is aiming the iQ at a premium part of a market which has yet to become well established. It’s a bold move but you have to admire this little car for its all round ability, low running costs and brilliant engineering. From its funky looks to the ultra thin seats and other space creating devices such as an underfloor fuel tank there are many aspects of the iQ which are groundbreaking. Minimalist it may be but the iQ has everything needed to make it a top class city car and more – but at a price.

Fiat Qubo 1.3 MultiJet Dynamic

road

TEST

with MIKE TORPEY

W

ITH a name like Qubo there’s a strong chance the end product will look more boxy than cutting edge. But then Fiat makes of point of saying its new mini-MPV is aimed at people who “don’t worry about this week’s must haves or whether beige is the new black”. Original, nimble and compact it may be, but there’s no disguising the fact that despite being jazzed up with colours like fiery orange and funky green the Qubo is essentially a van. Not just any van mind, it’s a lot better than that, and while car manufacturers’ claims for their vehicles are often a touch fanciful, just about everything Fiat says about this model is true. Let’s look at its practicality. Rear access is via sliding doors – very sensible where kids are concerned – and there’s ample room for three in the back. The feel of the cabin is light and airy thanks to a large glass area that both boosts visibility and contributes to the Qubo’s identity, while the seats are of what seems a durable fabric and the instruments easy to access. Load space is excellent too. I shoehorned in a load of student gear, including a classic 1970s Peugeot pushbike, and because the tailgate is top-hinged I managed to keep dry as the rain lashed down. The rear seats split 60/40, tumble forwards into their footwell and can also be lifted out, while there are cubbies for smaller items throughout the car.

Just van-tastic speccheck

GREEN VAN FAN: Despite being jazzed up with colours like fiery orange and funky green the Qubo is essentially a van Four versions of the Qubo are available with the choice of either a 1.4-litre 73bhp petrol engine or the tested 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel producing 75bhp, both in either Active or Dynamic trim. I wasn’t expecting much from the diesel but was surprised, especially on the motorway where it proved very capable. It feels an agile car in general and also boasts a terrific turning circle. On the downside it’s a noisy powerplant, largely because you

have to work it hard, and if the throttle is floored in second gear from a near standstill, well, nothing happens for what seems an eternity. But then performance is not the reason for buying this car, which at £9,750 for a 1.4 Active represents decent value for money. Opting for turbodiesel hikes up the price by £1,200 but, apart from being slightly more powerful, this engine also returns an official 62.8mpg average, meaning drivers have the potential for covering 625

miles on a 45-litre tank of fuel. Carbon dioxide emissions are also low at 119g/km, putting it into the £35 band B for vehicle excise duty. Insurance is also low at group two. Safety features are a priority, all models coming with driver, passenger and side airbags, ABS, head restraints and Isofix child seats anchoring as standard. The doors also lock automatically when you reach 12mph. Every Qubo is also fitted with Fiat’s Blue&Me hands-free

communications system so drivers can connect mobile phones and media players to the car using Bluetooth technology. You certainly get plenty for your money – and the ability to save even more thanks to Fiat’s latest innovation, called eco:Drive. You plug a USB key into the Blue&Me port to record information about your driving style, then transfer is to a computer, which then shows how you can become a more efficient driver.
