Toyota to get "Smart" with iQ

Looks like Toyota is going to be aiming directly for the the MCC Smart with it's new iQ (iQ; get it? Pretty "Smart" name). According to Autoblog, this production version will debut at the Geneva Auto Show.

Anyway, I think it looks pretty good. It does kind of look like a miniature Scion, but that's not a bad thing. In fact, I think this version looks better than the current Smart ForTwo. Rumor has it that the powerplant is going to be a Yamaha motorcycle engine. Also, room for 3.5 people. That's three adults and a child. The question I have is, of course, will the U.S. get a version?

I like it, a nicely updated version of the Aygo... Can't wait to see these modded up!
