Iq 1.33

Auris Yaris and iQ have the same 1.33 engine and gear box. However you will notice that the weights speeds, power and torque 0 to 60 times are all different. The engines are tuned to specific requirements to suit that particular car. It sounds like the iQ engine is restricted to a degree as I’m sure that putting too much power in this little car would require upgrades of other components which would increase the price of an already expensive car.

This makes no sense if the max BHP is the same. If I reved it to the red line and lifted off I don't see why de-tuning would restrict this narrow power band. It must be down to gearing or weight.

The Yaris T Sport with the old VTT, Fiat Panda Sport both have less bhp per ton but 0-60 in under 10 seconds. 3K saving and extra seats make them as well as other super mini's more attractive.

11.8 seconds for 0-62 mph is claimed in Toyota's 1.33 iQ press release today:

Most annoyingly there is an exclusive Decuma Grey metallic paint that looks fantastic - the problem is that I don't want the 1.33 so I can't have that colour :(

I like the colour.... although i am slightly biased :lol:

Quite keen to see some real world figures for this... my bro's Auris 1.33 certainly shifts well for a big car

:thumbsup:
