THE world's smallest four-seater car is presenting owners with a helping of higher quality and wider choice.
Toyota's popular iQ compact city model now comes with a new grey interior featuring black upper trims on the doors and toning fabric upholstery.
The new cabin colour-way is available with Eclipse Black, Pearl White, Island Blue and Tyrol Silver exterior finishes, while the established plum interior will continue to be offered with Deep Amethyst, Chilli Red and Decuma Grey.
New soft-touch materials have been introduced and the "manta ray" motif panels on the door and centre console adopt a new black finish, while a scarlet surround has been added to the centre console.
And as an option, customers can select Kuru black leather upholstery on models with the new grey interior.
The Toyota Optimal Drive 1.0-litre VVT-i and 1.33-litre Dual VVT-i petrol engines have been revised to meet Euro 5 emissions standards, though the changes have had no impact on performance or fuel efficiency.
