2010 Toyota iQ 1.0 VVT-i petrol from UK and Ireland
Good small car, but think again if you expect to get 65 MPG
Nothing physically, although since new I have only achieved an average fuel consumption of 35 MPG (compared to the quoted 65 MPG combined/57 MPG urban in the brochure).
The car has been back to the dealer twice for various "tests" (basically plugged into a laptop to see if any fault codes come up) along with an economy test where they achieved 42 MPG (mainly dual carriageway driving), which they have advised is PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE for this vehicle. I have also reported the "problem" to Toyota Customer Relations UK, who advised me that as the dealer could not find any faults, then there is nothing that can be done!
Despite the poor MPG (my wife has a 2003 Renault Scenic dCi which does 42 MPG average on the same journeys) the car is fun, handles great, is well spec'ed, & stands out from the crowd.
Very comfortable and quiet at speed.
Zero road tax.
Enough room for my family (my 2 children love it in the back).
MPG achieved nowhere near what is quoted in the brochure.
The cabin lighting is appalling.
Boot space is virtually zero with the back seats up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
