Toyota Ist 2010, sustained in the style of off-road cars, was designed as a beautiful compact car with a capacious luggage compartment and sporty interior design. This car, originally intended only for domestic consumption, later was introduced and in foreign markets. As an export model, the first generation Ist (NCP60) was sold under the names of Toyota xA and Scion Xa. During the first month after the release of Ist, buyers bought 42,000 cars of this model, which turned Ist into a hit in sales in the automotive market in Japan. Many chose this car because of its pleasant in all respects the exterior and interior, its reasonable price and economy. Of course, the main competitors of Toyota Ist are such popular models as Honda Fit and Nissan March.
Developers managed to maintain the balance of panache and power, which are clearly expressed in the design of Toyota Ist 2010. Outstanding wheel arches, along with 15-inch wheels, emphasize the off-road style of this car. The windows, widened at the front of the car, gradually narrow to the tailgate. Do not forget about the good spaciousness and related amenities – rear seats can be folded and get a large trunk. Under the boot floor, there is an extra space for things, and the hook on the back of the driver’s seat will allow you to hang your purse.
The first generation of Ist is represented by bundles of different price level. In the budget versions like “1.3f E edition” there is only audio preparation. From the usual options – only the manual air conditioner, hydraulic booster, steering column, tilted, rear wiper. In the expensive “1.5 S L edition” trim levels, the car is equipped with automatic air conditioning, leather steering wheel braid, xenon headlights and front fog lights, rear spoiler on the roof, navigation system, DVD, cast discs, etc. Partial improvements have affected this popular car more than once. The first changes that touched the interior and body colors occurred already in 2003, more global ones in 2004.
At Toyota Ist 2010, 1.3 and 1.5 liter engines are being installed, which are used in the Toyota Vitz. These are the engines of the 2NZ-FE and 1NZ-FE series with 87 and 109 hp. In half-liter models with all-wheel drive – 105 hp. The peculiarities of these power units include high fuel economy and low level of harmful substances in exhaust fumes. Especially in cars since February 2004, when U-LEV standards were adopted for all vehicles to reduce the emission standard by 50% by 2005. Note that for urban Toyota Ist 2010 engine 1.3 is sufficient, given the light weight of the car. Although in terms of life and power density, of course, preferred version with a 1.5-liter engine.
Suspension Toyota Ist 2010 – this is certainly a compromise for all budget cars version. Front pillars with screw springs and rear semi-independent torsion suspension for front-wheel drive cars and a continuous bridge on the springs for all-wheel drive. Hence, some rigidity of the suspension, but on the other side of the scale – the unlimited simplicity and reliability of the design. If we talk about the full drive, it is organized on the again widespread for many “compacts” scheme V-Flex 4WD with connect viskomufta rear wheels. Taking into account the quite decent for the base size of 2370 mm clearance (155 mm), the presence of 4WD will give the owner some advantages when driving on country roads and forest roads (lovers of cottages and picnics for a note), and in winter on a slippery road.
Safety Toyota Ist 2010 as standard provides front and side airbags, seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters, child restraint mechanism, ABS, EBD, Brake Assist. A crash test conducted by NASVA (Japan) showed a high level of passive safety – the car received six stars out of six for protecting the driver and five stars for the front passenger.
The name of this car can be translated as a “connoisseur in its field”, and it quite accurately characterizes the Toyota Ist 2010 as an almost perfect compact car, roomy and smart, equally suitable for both men and women. On the market, this generation is almost equally divided between cars with engines of 1.3 and 1.5 liters, among the latter are often found and all-wheel drive. For all modifications of this model, only a four-speed automatic transmission is installed, and this is a certain plus in terms of “traditional values.”
We are really happy to present you Toyota Ist 2010.
