Just back from two decent days in Italy driving the Toyota iQ for a video you’ll be able to watch here next week.

IQ And you know what? I really like this little car. It’s just so clever.

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.
