First look at the 2016 Scion iA sees a sedan big on value and performance
The new 2016 Scion iA is here to infuse the Scion lineup with a fun-to-drive four-door vehicle. Reviewers note that the Scion iA looks similar to the new Mazda 2. Like other Scion models, 2016 Scion iA is big on value. The 2016 Scion iA in Decatur AL is built with a Mazda’s 1.5-liter SKYACTIV four-cylinder engine. The engine will be branded under the hood of a Scion putting out 106 horsepower that can be paired with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Those drivers who thirst for a fun-to-drive sedan will be pleased with the new Scion iA. It is expected to be decked out with a 7-inch multimedia system that, of course, comes standard. Its 1.5-liter engine is expected to crank out an eye-popping 42 MPG highway.
The 2016 is super sporty, packed full of fun and still very affordable. Scion expects the brand new iA to hit showrooms in the fall. A keyless Entry and Push-Button Start come standard. Scion will brag that the six-speed manual stick-shift transmission is one of the most fun to drive on the market — it’s got a short stroke and shifts smoothly.
Unlike the 2015 Scion xB or 2015 tC, the new iA appears with Scion’s brand new model name. In their press release, Scion made note of the new model number, “iA”. The “i” in the name reveals the car’s individuality, intrigue and also easy on the income of the car buyer. The letter “A” that follows suggest an aggressive styling, accommodating interior and affordability.
Jumping right into an impressive competitive compact category, the Scion iA is also pretty big on safety. Front side airbags and curtain airbags keep passengers safe. The affordable Scion iA comes with standard Low-speed Pre-collision system. The collisions system actually uses a laser sensor to help the driver either avoid a collision altogether or minimize the impact of an oncoming crash.
If you crave a custom vehicle, the 2016 Scion iA will still come with a load of dealer installable features you can customize here at Serra Toyota and Scion of Decatur. You won’t have to be a good negotiator to get a good price on the Scion iA. Serra Scion respects the “Pure Price” approach. Whatever price you see posted is the price you will pay.
