A lower iQ

Toyota takes its iQ city car and, well, pimps it up

Toyota iQ for Sports

Back in April, those funky yoofs at Scion showed us their version of the iQ – a chunky green booger of a thing.
 
Toyota’s people clearly liked it, so they’ve peeled off the Scion badges, plonked on their own and called it the ‘iQ for Sports’.

We've no idea what that name's about, but we like it a lot. That stocky bodykit gives the iQ all the visual menace of a cocky hoodlum, helped by huge 18-inch wheels squeezed into the corners. They’re so big they almost meet in the middle.
 
There’s a roof spoiler and trapezoidal exhaust (oblongs are sooo last century) too.
 
Inside, there’s 10-inch touch-screen telly and the seat bolsters are trimmed in squidgy wetsuit material.
 
Officially the car is still a concept, but gossip suggests it will be available to buy sometime soon. So to speed up the process, we’re starting a petition.
