Two customised iQ show cars demonstrate that it is possible to combine the environmentally friendly credentials of sub- 100 g/km vehicles with tremendous appeal and individuality.

Within a white pearl bodyshell enhanced by a fully glazed roof, the iQ Collection focuses on interior customisation. It explores synergies between interior and exterior design through the adoption of white pearl detailing to key areas of trim throughout the interior, such as the centre console, instrument binnacle and door panels.

Complimentary leather upholstery combines matching white piping with a show car-unique central panel design. The iQ for Sports reflects modern urban chic through a purposemade body kit emphasising the iQ’s broad stance, powerful geometry and clean sweeping lines. Custom 18” alloy wheels, aero headlamps, high-intensity LED driving lights, a roof spoiler and a central, trapezoid exhaust further reinforce the iQ’s potential for distinctive, stylish personalisation.

The interior fuses function, style and entertainment. Innovative styling and attention to detail are reflected in the illuminated door handles, the swivelling over-dash spotlight, an illuminated iQ logo, and nickel and raw aluminium interior trim panels. Bright green and grey upholstery combined with matt black, scuba-style polyurethane seat bolsters and head-liner top-stitched in bright green create a fresh, contemporary environment. A 10” LCD touch screen serves as the main entertainment console and navigation system interface, incorporating DVD playback and music library facilities.
