TOYOTA iQ reviewNGC verdict 09.12.2008
Buyers are hardly falling over themselves in the rush to buy a smart car, which must make you wonder why Toyota wants a share of that city car sector, although Iain Robertson feels confident that 'intelligence' will win.
While I may like the Mercedes-Benz smart, for its chic cuteness and sheer agility as an urban runabout, its handling remains suspect and its two-only seating is cramped and its boot is a nonsense. 'Smart'? I do not think so. However, the new Toyota iQ, or 'intelligence Quotient', certainly has the smarts over the two-seater Merc and takes small car design in the right direction.
