Toyota iQ microcar to hit US shores at Los Angeles Auto Show

According to Motor Trend, Toyota's microcar - the iQ, is coming to the US.

As late as March of this year officials at Toyota stated that the car was destined for European and Japanese markets only. But the folks at Motor Trend, quoting "sources", have reported that the 56-mpg car will make its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month -- but with a Scion logo on the nose.

We reported on the car's appearance at the Geneva Auto Show back in March (MINUTIA Online - March 4, 2008), but we had no idea we would have the opportunity to see the microcar at our local Scion dealership.
