Scion has been a big win for Toyota in previous model years. In 2016, Toyota has announced that they will launch two models: The Scion iM and Scion iA. Both are stickered with a price tag that is sure to please Scion lovers. The iM is a hatchback version of the vehicle, and the iA is a traditional sedan. Both vehicles will be available in the showroom beginning September 1st, 2015.
Scion iM will have a starting MSRP of just $18,460 for the manual version, and $19,200 for the CVTi-S model. Scion iA begins at $15,700 for the six speed manual version and $16,800 for the six speed automatic model. Both models are priced to please and jam packed with fun so you can get out on the road and enjoy life. So what do you get and what is the difference between the two?
Scion iM is a cute hatchback that is full of unexpected space. A 137 hp 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine is under the hood. It has an MPG of 28 in the city/37 highway for the automatic transmission and 27/36 for the manual. A 7-inch Pioneer Audio Display unit, rear backup camera, 4.2 inch color TFT multi-informational display (a Scion first!), Hill Start Assist, and Dual Zone Climate Control.
