The Toyota iQ Concept is an ultra-compact car concept that was designed at Toyota’s ED2 European design studio in the South of France. The car is only 2980mm in length, which is 425mm shorter than the mini Toyota Aygo, but it’s stout looks are thanks to it’s width and height that are similiar to the larger Toyota Yaris.
An evolution of the previous Toyota Endo 2005 concept that is nearer to production state, the iQ Concept features 3+1 seating. This means room for 3 adults plus a child. The interior is normally configured as a 2-seater, but if you slide the passenger seat forward (this means the passenger sits more forward in the cabin than the driver), room for an extra adult is created at the rear. The small space behind the driver’s seat can then be used either for luggage or to seat a child.
A conventional meter cluster is replaced with a 3D 3-in-1 speed, RPM and fuel level read-out mounted as a single dial above the steering column, something inspired from the MINI perhaps. More photos after the jump.
