iQ collection

— Wide scope for personalisation with a choice of two additional customised interiors

— New exterior colour — Bronze Mica

— Interior ergonomic and quality enhancements across the iQ range

The unveiling of two customised iQ show cars at the 2009 Frankfurt motor show demonstrated that it is possible to combine the environmentally friendly credentials of sub-100 g/km vehicles with tremendous appeal and individuality.

Now in production, and on display for the first time at the 2010 Geneva motor show, the new iQ Collection features a choice of customised interiors, satisfying customer demand for enhanced interior quality and wider scope in the personalisation of their cars.

This marks the start of an ongoing iQ Collection programme which will regularly update the model range with customisation offers reflecting the latest trends in style, colour and design.

In addition to the existing silver matt interior, the 2010 iQ Collection offers a choice of Cream or Gold finishes to the centre console, instrument cluster hood, and steering wheel and door panel inserts.

Complementing the new iQ Collection, a new Bronze Mica exterior colour is available, expanding customer choice in interior and exterior harmonisation.

Ergonomic enhancements have been made across the entire iQ model range. A height adjustable driver's seat is now fitted as standard on iQ2 and iQ3 grades, and a new door handle has been fitted with an improved grip design for easier closing.

The quality and texture of interior finishes has also been refined by the application of a durable, soft touch material to the passenger side dashboard and chrome trim to the interior ceiling lamp.
