With the new Toyota iQ seeming to offer a perfectly proportioned mix of economy and ability, Cobra Springs have also added ‘excitement’ to that list.
With every road tester loving the car at its launch, but being a touch underwhelmed by its handling prowess, The Cobra kit comes as the perfect upgrade package to maintain the ride quality whilst massively improving the handling. Lowering the car by 30mm, the lower centre of gravity brings improved turn-in, pin-point accuracy and a real sense of fun, without ruining the character of the car.
The heat-treated springs are powder coated for a long and durable life – even on the UK’s salted winter roads. Each spring is cold-formed for accuracy before being heat treated for strength and durability. Finally each and every spring is shot-peened to pre fatigue the spring and eliminate sagging. This lengthy production process explains Cobra’s confidence in their product and their 5 Year warranty.
So if you fancy the ecological credentials of the superb iQ, but with a far more aggressive stance and vastly improved dynamics – It looks like you can finally have your cake and eat it.
Two kits are available for all 2009 on cars. One kit for the 1.0 and a heavier wind for the 1.3 petrol and 1.4 diesel models. Both are priced at £139.00 + VAT and lower the respective model by 30mm all round.
