2011 Toyota iQ

While the US market is still waiting for the Scion iQ to go on sale, the Europeans are already receiving an updated version of the Toyota iQ which will be revealed at the Paris Auto Show. But don’t expect big changes; Toyota decided that the only thing needed to be improved was the interior.

A new gray interior has been introduced, with contrasting black upper trims on the doors and toning fabric upholstery. The new cabin color-way is available with Eclipse Black, Pearl White, Island Blue, and Tyrol Silver exterior finishes, while the established plum interior will continue to be offered with Deep Amethyst, Chilli Red and Decuma Grey.

New soft-touch materials have been introduced and the “manta ray” motif panels on the door and center console adopt a new black finish. A scarlet surround has been added to the center console, toning with contrasting red stitching on the black leather steering wheel.

Press release after the jump.

It may be the world’s smallest four-seater car, but the Toyota iQ has never been short on style. Its distinctive exterior appearance remains unchanged, but in the cabin some changes have been made to raise the quality factor and give customers more choice.

This may be the world’s shortest four-seater car in the world, but the exterior design remains the same. Toyota IQ gets smarter in the year 2011.

This looks like a sliced Toyota Innova to be short like that. Despite the smaller appearance of the outside, it’s more spacious in the inside. I don’t know how’s that happen, but it really looks bigger. Well, the most important was it’s able to do good and look best. 

Well, I don’t see much to look at in this 2011 Toyota iQ. I mean there’s no upgrades or improvements to this car except of little interior details. However, I would say that iQ vehicles are really cute.

Toyota iQ is really a cunning vehicle because on its platform, and I must say that it looks more attractive on its purple body paint. However, I wonder if what is the engine specification of this city car?

I’m so impressed with this iQ because of the fact that it had a very spacious interior for a small vehicle like this. smiley I also love the technology that it can offer, which only adds more appeal to it.

Toyota iQ absolutely looks so cute on its platform and in its aesthetic design. I also noticed that the body paint on it, only adds more appeal on this city car. Anyway, is it already on the market?

Is it really the ’world’s smallest four-seater car’? Anyway, I must say that I’m really impressed with small cars, aside from the fact they look so cute on their platform, I also love the fact that it can only consume less fuel.

The interior seems so nice most especially the interior touch and the dashboard of this is and I have to admit that despite of the fact that it is only a small car, it is oozing with car appeal.

The dashboard seems so awesome and the interior looks so cozy and relaxing. I would also love to have a car like this, so reliable on a road and very practical to use in everyday transportation.

iQ is really cute on its platform and already looks stunning and great on its color, the handling seems so nice also. I can’t wait to see this one. smiley

The handling looks so nice and I noticed that the interior is seems so cool, cozy and relaxing. smiley This iQ is what I have looking for a car.

I have to agree with you UsedCars that small cars are so perfect with the city and the interior of this cute toyota iQ seems so relaxing and cozy on its perfect touch.

I am a fan of small cars, they are perfect for the city. This one is special, among other things, because you may buy it in Deep Amethys interior color. I like it when I can customize my car.
