It has a one-plus-two seating arrangement and Toyota says it features ‘Active Lean’ technology that is similar to the Toyota i-ROAD concept shown in Geneva in 2013.

The i-TRIL may also get a limited top speed similar to the i-ROAD of around 30mph.

Toyota says it has been developed as a “viable alternative” to city cars and small hatchbacks for people who “still want to have fun when driving, even at slower, urban traffic speeds”.

The car has been developed by Toyota Motor Europe with the company’s design centre in Nice. 

The Japanese manufacturer will also be displaying the new Yaris, along with a hot version of it, at the Geneva motor show.
