Toyota's new compact iQ

Small iQ is proof of intelligent design for Toyota

GENEVA (AFP) — Japanese carmaker Toyota on Tuesday unveiled its new compact "iQ" passenger car to a packed crowd at the Geneva Auto Show in a bid to appeal to environmentally-aware urban customers.

The iQ is "the world's smallest four-seater passenger car," Toyota Europe senior vice-president Andrea Formica told journalists.

It can seat three adults and one child, and Toyota hopes its small size will make it attractive to urban drivers.

The iQ will also have a CO2 emissions target of 99 grams per kilometre and will thus play a key role in cutting Toyota's fleet average emissions.

"We view this car as a major milestone in Toyota's vehicle development," Formica said.
