Just back from two decent days in Italy driving the Toyota iQ for a video you’ll be able to watch here next week.
You genuinely can fit two adults and two kids in an iQ – a car that’s not much bigger than a Smart ForTwo – without anyone getting squished.
Toyota’s elegant space-saving solutions like the the under-floor fuel tank, the miniaturised dashboard and that innovative 3+1 seating system could very well shape city cars to come.
Best of all, you can drive an iQ road tax-free in the UK because the rorty little three-pot motor only pumps out 99 grams per kilometre of CO2.
Other manufacturers seem to be falling over themselves to launch something similar.
