The race may now be set not to go to the swift, but the Toyota, evidently spurred by the reception to Daimler’s Smart is planning to bring the Toyota iQ to America soon after introduced in Japan this and Europe next January. has already proven itself to be a market for small cars, and says that the only standing between the iQ and similar in the United States, is meeting safety standards. If all goes as the iQ has the potential to give the Smart the littlest car sold in the U.S.—some competition in terms of fuel and versatility in the micro class.

For starters, the iQ is a four-passenger vehicle the Smart only carries Some might quibble the size of the iQ’s backseat, and whether the car can comfortably carry American adults—Toyota actually journalists it was a “3 ½-seater,” as if to excuse a rear seat.

The iQ is larger than the diminutive but not by much. Its wheelbase is a little than five inches and on the whole, the car is only about a longer than the Smart—11.4 to be exact. That said, its larger size and some engineering wizardry will the iQ better handling than its according to Hiroki Nakajima, the chief engineer.

Nakajima told Automotive News the iQ will have the best economy of any Toyota other the Prius. The Prius is currently at 48 City/ 45 Highway, while the gets 29/36—Daimler’s Smart 33/41. Chances are, the iQ will be very close to the in terms of fuel economy, and if it any better, it’s likely to be a mile or two difference per gallon.

Although it’s 33 inches than the Yaris. Toyota the iQ has more interior space due to advances such as smaller and air-conditioning units and high-tensile frames that allow passenger seats. The iQ will be priced close to the Yaris, could make it a sub-$10,000 in base trim. The Smart about $2,000 higher.

In Japan (and most the U.S.,) the Toyota iQ will with either a 1.3 or 1-liter engine. The latter is the same as the Mitsubishi powerplant that is in the American Smart. In Europe, the iQ offer a 1.4-liter diesel, should turn in even fuel economy. The European diesel clocks in at more 60 mpg on the highway.

The good news is that choices in the mini car arena are what consumers are asking for now. If the U.S. version of the iQ can breakthrough design features at an price, it could be the first toward turning micros a mere curiosity to a mainstay on roads.
