Toyota Greensburg, near Pittsburgh, Reveals the 2009 Toyota iQ
A hot topic of the automotive world is the new compact 2009 Toyota iQ. Combining the best features of a compact car with the traditional comforts of other Toyota crossover models, the iQ exudes environmentalism and economy for Pittsburgh. At only 118 inches in length (less than 10 feet), this car is a redefined mode of crossover transportation, able to capably seat three adults and one child or luggage without making you feel claustrophobic.
With a design so small, Toyota took advantage of every inch of interior space that they could utilize for comfort and great gas mileage. The flat fuel tank is located underneath the seats, to maximize the amount of usable space. The air conditioning/ heating unit is small, but energy efficient and eco-friendly. Seats were designed to be slimmer and the dashboard is asymmetrical, sloping away from the driver and passenger and allowing for added space. The iQ is also larger than its competition, with an additional 5 inches in width and 10 inches in length. Doesn’t seem like a lot of extra space to you? If you’re six feet tall, ten inches will make an incredible difference in your comfort. The 2009 Toyota iQ also makes driving in the city a breeze. Parallel parking can be achieved in the tightest of spaces.
Anything But Ordinary
Petite design with a reasonable price does not mean to imply basic. The dashboard features an LCD display and a satellite navigation system for easy driving. The Euro NCAP gave the Toyota iQ a five star safety rating. This high tech and innovative design will help the average American cope with absurd gas prices, getting gas mileage well below an SUV’s.
The 2009 Toyota iQ outsmarts the competition’s compact models, labeled the “intelligent solution to urban transportation.” The iQ differs from other Pittsburgh crossover models, like those with a 2-cylinder engine, by sporting an up-front non-turbo engine and front-wheel drive. This car is the perfect crossover model for the sophisticated, gas mileage conscious driver who is interested in making his or her contribution to the earth.
