Hi all, does the Canadian IQ's comes standard with a block heater? :confused: I read a review saying it does. However this same review also mentiond standard heated seats...not included in the IQ. So doesn't seem credible.

Thanks...

When I spoke to a salesman yesterday I was told that a block heater option might be available this summer. No idea where he was getting his info from though. One option that was offered to me in the mean time was an aftermarket oil pan heater. This is a heating element that bolts on to the oil pan and heats that, instead of the the coolant heater which is what the typical block heater is. Not certain how effective it is, but better than nothing when the weather hits -40.

I had one built for my IQ. They are not available for the car at the current time. Huge oversight on Toyota's part. Selling cars in Western Canada without a block heater is goofy. They used one from a Toyota Yaris for mine and charged me over $200

My dealer acknowledged that this is a bit of a problem for us who live in cold weather climes but that a block heater is coming this summer (as Ahye posted). He's citing around $100-200 for the install. I'm still undecided as to whether I need it.

That's a great point, Adara. I never thought about it because, being on the coast, our winters are quite mild. Even a real cold snap might only get down to -20C with a wind chill. But knowing how cold it gets out there, and how small the engine is, I would be concerned about needing one.
