New Toyota IQ Customised by Customers

The Toyota IQ – one of the world's most distinctive cars – is now even more distinctive.

The Toyota IQ – one of the world's most distinctive cars – is now even more distinctive. But why? Motorists can choose from eight vibrant exterior paint finishes, six high-quality leather combinations, and six body decals covering the sides and roof. There are hundreds of combinations ranging from elegant to in-your-face loud. So, what are the tantalising options?

The leather seats have 'toning' – or 'contrasting' – stitches and fillet inserts around the shoulders. These create a certain 'x-factor' and cost £775. The combinations are:

Black leather with platinum fillets and stitching.
Platinum leather with black fillets and stitching.
Red leather with platinum fillets and stitching.
Black leather with Electric Blue fillets and stitching, plus iQ logo on headrest.
Black leather with Burnt Orange fillets and stitching, plus iQ logo on headrest.
Black leather with red fillets and stitching, plus iQ logo on headrest.

Furthermore, side decals cost £200 - and enhancing the roof a further £180. Options include:

Classic monochrome (check).
Psychedelic (multicolour swirl).
Box (scattering of colourful quadrilaterals).
Bloom (retro daisies).
Pulse (swoosh of grey strokes).
Aqua (flow of bubbles).

Motorists can, therefore, have pretty much anything they fancy. But should they? Taste is subjective, of course, but the Toyota IQ is a 'real' car – not a cartoon. Still, it is only a bit of fun I suppose - and a sticker covered run-around is easy to find in car parks. Happy days? Maybe!
