Toyota Iq range is extended for the first time since release with the introduction to the line-up of a 1. 33-litre motor. The highly efficient lightweight unit, already successfully deployed in Auris, Yaris and Urban Cruiser is provided exclusively in the new Toyota Iq3 model.

Benefiting from Toyota Optimal Drive technology for a class-leading mix of performance, fuel efficiency and low emissions, it uses Dual Vvt-i control of both intake and exhaust valves to deliver strong torque at low to medium motor speeds and achieve maximum efficiency.

The headline figures broadcast the exceptional buyer benefits in terms of running costs. With manual transmission, Toyota Iq3 returns an official 58. 9mpg in combined cycle driving, and 113g/km of CO2 - Band B for road tax (£35 annual charge) - both of which are best-in-class figures. Equipped with Toyota's new Multidrive CVT system, fuel efficiency is just as good, while emissions rise slightly to 120g/km, but remain within Band B.

This achievement is not at the expense of performance. The motor develops a maximum 98bhp at 6000rpm, and peak torque of 125nm at 4400rpm,. Nought to 62mph can be achieved in 11. 8 seconds (11. 6 with Multidrive) and top speed is 106mph. This underlines the fact that Toyota Iq is more than just a city runabout, giving a strong, stable and enjoyable drive at motorway speeds.
