2016 Scion iA Zoom-Zooms Into Reality


Quote:
Thereís a tiny new Scion headed to dealerships this year. Itís called the iA and itís the companyís first-ever sedan. But if youíre thinking it looks an awful lot like another car, youíre right because this is actually a re-badged Mazda2. Toyota formed an alliance with Mazda, giving Scion some sorely needed new product in order to market a re-badged version of their new sub-compact, which explains the oh-so-KODO body lines, tail lights and interior pieces. It gets a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that sends 106 hp to the front wheels through either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. According to the company, it should be capable of returning up to 33 MPG in city driving, 42 on the highway or 37 MPG on the whole. Scionís scheme hasnít changed; theyíre all about selling a single trim to keep things simple and eliminate the need for its customers to haggle with the sales staff. Accordingly, the iA comes outfitted with a list of standard features that includes 16-inch alloy wheels, push-button ignition and a pre-collision system meant to help you avoid fender benders. Thereís also a seven-inch infotainment screen linked to a control knob sitting behind the cup holders. Itís all very Mazda-like, which is hardly a bad thing. So far, the latest crop of products is proving to be far more premium feeling than the products they compete directly with. That could be good news. After all, it means the new iA wonít rely on the lamentable Pioneer touchscreen that the rest of Scionís lineup is stuck with. Scion didnít announce explicit pricing for its new mini sedan today, but it said the 'monotrim' car will cost roughly $16,000.

I would be interested to see this next to other cars just for size comparison. I like it for the most part, but if it is Fiesta size my tall/wide body structure will not work inside it.

You can also look up its dimension and compare that to dimensions of vehicles you want to compare it to, all while we wait to finally see these hit the road.
