Toyota will have three world premières at Paris: Avensis, iQ and Urban Cruiser

Toyota has already announced what it will take to Paris in October. The new Avensis, iQ and Urban Cruiser will be at the 2008 Paris Motor Show as world premières, all of them very important for the Japanese carmaker's plans for Europe.

Avensis, the flagship for Toyota in the Old World, has had very few details disclosed. Only the regular sayings on better fuel economy, more muscular lines blah, blah, blah, blah...

As for the iQ, it will be an important weapon to fight Fiat 500's popularity and the future Topolino. Toyota has said more about this little car. The company calls the iQ the "smallest premium 4-seater ever built" and says it emits only 99 g/km of carbon dioxide. That's not much, considering Seat Ibiza Ecomotive achieves just the same and is considerably bigger. Something interesting about the iQ is that it will have the first rear window curtain shield airbags.

Toyota's Urban Cruiser features AWD and an 1.4-litre D-4D diesel that emits 133 g/km of CO2. Also no word on size or other interesting technical information. Ok, Paris is getting closer anyway.
