The Toyota IST is recognised worldwide for being the perfect urban vehicle. Its short wheelbase and fuel efficient engine make it easy to drive in crowded places. Its high roofline and hatchback make it versatile, too. No parking spot is too small for the Toyota IST.
This 5-door hatchback may be slightly similar to its close sibling the Toyota Vitz, but offers a back door that is bigger in diameter and with design elements that are reminiscent of a compact SUV.
All grades of the Toyota IST include features such as electronically controlled side mirrors, an auto air conditioning, however higher grades also have components such as an engine immobilizer, traction control, and vehicle stability control. As for safety equipment, dual airbags, brake assist, ABS with EBD (electronic braking force distribution control), seat belts with pretensioner and force limiter are all standard across models. Some grades of the IST also have VSC (vehicle stability Control), TRC (traction control), an anti-theft system (engine immobilizer) and more.
The IST also acquired the certification for "50% reduction level of 2005 exhaust emissions standards" from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism which was reduced by 50% starting from the new 2005 regulations.
