    Ya know, it's actually not a bad looking little car. Around the size of a smart if I'm not mistaken, but has room for 3, and the economy is higher. Nice.

    The iQ is highly unlikely to have a 1 liter engine, as appears to be smaller than JDM Kei cars. To meet the rules for that category, it would have to be limited to a 660cc powerplant.

    If Toyota did indeed produce this with a 1L engine, it won't sell in Japan as there are many other choices with smaller engines (and more passenger space) resulting in a lower road-tax bracket.

    Since the Smart is here, will we get a choice now? It would be cool to have a high mileage commuter put out by a mainline company in the States.

    looks a lot better than the Smart.

    I bought a smart car; took delivery 3 weeks ago. It's a bit quirky in styling, but gets a lot of smiles and "thumbs-up". I was hoping for better mileage (41 mpg combined). If Toyota brings the iQ stateside, I would definitely consider it as it can carry an additional passenger AND get better mileage while keeping it's outside dimensions small/compact.

    I like it and hope Toyota sells this in the U.S. My wife loves her Yaris hatchback. I'd buy the iQ and both cars would fit in our small urban garage.

    If the Smart is only getting around 41 mpg, we are getting almost that with our Yaris hatchback. It is a great little car.

    41! Wow! I have a 2007 Prius with 10,000 miles on it. I was getting better, but because of the below freezing temps that have been hanging around, I'm DOWN to 42!

    As far as I can tell, my Prius has a bigger passenger compartment/cargo area than the Smart. I am limited to a ZERO towing, but I done own a trailer.
