Question 2016 Scion iM Pricing Discussion

Pricing on the 2016 Scion iM won't be out for a while, having a look at what pricing is like of some vehicles within it's segment as seen below creates a great starting point to suggest what it will go for once on-sale.

Based on what's known about the Scion iM, what do you think it will be priced at?

Scion iM Competition:
  • Mazda 3: $18,945
  • Volkswagen Golf: $17,995
  • Ford Focus: $16,810
  • Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback: $18,750

the iM is going to be the xB's replacement and right now it's price at 17 740$
i can't imagine scion iM pricing being too far away from that.

Yea I was going to guess somewhere around $17k. I think they will want to keep the price quite low. They may even try to undercut the Ford Focus by a few hundred dollars.

I'm not sure if they even need to undercut the Focus. What all these vehicles have to offer and what the iM will be offering are things to look into and compare to come up with a more precise price suggestion. For all we know they could price this higher than the Focus and still churn out a successful selling product.

I gave my guess at a price, what is yours @SiM ?

Do you think they are going to price it above the Focus?

I have a feeling it could be price above the Focus, probably right around the $17k mark.

Well it all comes down to content essentially.

Its strange, do they undercut Corolla with iM siphoning off some volume into the iM or do they go on top of the Corolla which would likely leave the iM dead in the water?

Of course thats a huge frame based on the assumption that Corolla and iM will even be sold to the same people...

There will be some crossover from the corolla to iM but I don't think it's going to be anywhere near being anything significant to take away from either model.

As if a car like the iM would make a noticeable dent in Corolla sales. That car is one of the best selling vehicles ever.

Exactly, Toyota and Scion won't have anything to worry about, only gains
