Hi everyone!

Just wondering if anyone knows when the Scion iM will be available in Canada? Pre-ordering is available now but I like to test out my cars before purchasing it.

So far most sources are suggesting by the last quarter or 3rd quarter of this year we should have more information on pre-ordering.
At best you could probably get onto a waiting list at your local dealer.

Even before test drives we should at the very least get some reactions from seeing it in person at events, I know Scion USA is doing that, not sure about Scion Canada.

That is correct. But I was promised by a dealer that I might get one of the early ones that arrive in AZ in another week or so. Now I have heard from another dealer and he thinks cars are being stockpiled here instead for release on September 1st.


There is a dealer in Carlsbad California who is having a preview with cars on August 12th. He has told me that I could go over the following weekend and see it, since I can't go during the week. I could even do a test drive, he said.


Here are a couple his tweets..

I saw the facebook group about the early release party. I can't imagine he would be the only doing something similar. Can't wait to get some real people's opinions about it.

I have noticed in the past that a lot of dealerships at the same time would do a release or one after the other and with a vehicle like this its bound to be like that, i'm sure we'll see more in the coming days and weeks.

Yesterday

3 arrived at the dealer near my place. Got to look closely and sit in one last evening. Nice interior but lacks a telescoping steering wheel, no height adjustment for passenger seat, no lumbar support adjustments. Back seat is surprisingly tight but adequate. The car looks low and flat but I guess that is what they wanted. In sum, seems just OK. Toyota reliability, though. VW Golf is a better deal and all round better. VW reliability, though.:serious:

It's weird that the car you were in did not have a telescoping steering wheel. I have heard a couple of reviewers say that too.
It telescoped in the iMs I have been in so this is a real mystery.

Would there be differences between manual and automatic and could the telescoping steering wheel be one of them?

I was in both a CVT and a Manual. Although I don't remember actually trying it in the manual, I did in the CVT.
It is listed in the Standard Features list..2016 Scion iM Hatchback Standard Features | Scion.com


There is the possibility that Canadian cars are different. That was the case with the Honda HR-V.

Hello S-Factor!!!

Looks like from other threads that you have gotten your test drive in bicepeak, I am also in the Phoenix area and was able to walk in to Bell Road Scion and be the first to test drive one of the iM's they had on their lot.

I will add that I was not impressed (and by not impressed I mean disgusted) with all interaction from two salesman at Bell Scion, however the car itself was everything I have been building it up to be while in pre-launch mode. :D
