Diminutive but distinctive, Toyota's iQ is capturing the spotlight at the Frankfurt motor show with two bold new design studies that further prove responsible, sub-100g/km motoring doesn't have to be dull.

iQ, the world's smallest four-seat production car, is already a head-turner on the street with its thoroughly contemporary and compact styling. Now Toyota is revealing the car's potential for customisation, with street-cool body kits and vibrant interiors.

iQ Collection

iQ Collection focuses on the cabin, with the white pearl finish of the body carried through to trim details such as the centre console, instrument binnacle and door panels. The leather upholstery is a matching white shade, with a central seat panel design exclusive to the show model. The fully glazed roof makes for an exceptionally light and bright interior.

iQ for Sports

Toyota iQ

iQ for Sports is all about urban street style with a bespoke body kit that accentuates iQ's broad stance, powerful geometry and clean, sweeping lines. The car rides on custom-made 18-inch alloys and features aero-headlamps with high-intensity LED driving lights for an unmistakable “look-at-me” appearance. There is also a rear roof spoiler and a trapezoidal central exhaust, further emphasising iQ's potential for personalisation.

The radical styling continues on the inside with illuminated door handles, a swivelling spotlight on top of the dash, an illuminated iQ logo and trim panels crafted in raw nickel and aluminium.

The seats are finished in bright green and grey upholstery, with contrasting bolsters in a matt-black scuba-style polyurethene, and the headlining is also a vibrant green. On-board entertainment and navigation are controlled by a 10-inch LCD touch-screen, with DVD playback and music library functions.
