Toyota iQ3 could be smart choice

Fri, 19 Jun 2009
Motorists looking at buying a car that can help them improve their green credentials may want to consider a new Toyota model.

The manufacturer's iQ3 offers CO2 emissions of 113 g/km – and the company suggested the vehicle's eco-friendly nature could protect drivers' pockets, as well as the planet.

People who purchase the car will find they are eligible for band B road tax – currently fixed at an annual charge of £35.

Meanwhile, with fuel economy of 58.9 mpg, the auto could help owners reduce the amount they spend at the pump each month.

The car is fitted with a 1.33-litre engine and Toyota said it also boasts a high equipment specification.

Buyers will discover the vehicle comes with the same features as the iQ2, but has a couple of added extras too – including 16-inch alloy wheels.

In other motoring news, the manufacturer's Land Cruiser V8 claimed an accolade at the British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards.
