Report: Scion iQ to hit U.S. soil in fall 2010
08/17/2009, 12:44 PMBY DREW JOHNSON


Toyota’s Scion brand has been struggling to find buyers over the last few months – with sales down 57.8 percent this year – but the funky brand should receive a shot in the arm next year. According to inside sources, the Scion iQ concept shown at the 2009 New York Motor Show will be arriving in U.S. dealerships in 2010.

Although Toyota – Scion’s parent company – has yet to officially announce the iQ is U.S.-bound, Jack Hollis, vice president of the Scion division, reportedly revealed to Scion dealers that the iQ would be arriving in U.S. dealerships by fall of 2010.
“Jack told us it’s coming next September or October,” a large Toyota dealer told Automotive News.
At 117.5 inches long, the iQ is about one foot longer than the Smart ForTwo, offering seating for three adults and one child. A three-cylinder engine is available in the Euro-spec iQ – which has been on sale since late 2008 – but the Scion version will likely do with a more powerful 1.3L four-cylinder. Fuel economy is expected to top 60 mpg.
Like all Scion models, the iQ will likely be offered in only one trim level, but will offer a number of customization options. No pricing information has been revealed, but the tiny hatchback is expected to carry a price tag of about $15,000.

Here's something I've been wondering, and perhaps our friends in Europe can enlighten us... How do the Fiat 500 and the iQ compare to each other? What are the pros and cons of each, how do they compare in size, etc? From what I read in reviews I almost think I like the 500 more than the iQ...

Thanks!

It is already old news that the Fiat 500 is going to be on sale in the US in about a year. Probably imported at first, but then built at one of Chrysler's plants in Mexico.

Not sure how to take that - or you - but if you search around you'll find it's been reported in lots and lots of reputable news sources. It's not just an Internet rumor.
