First Look: 2016 Scion iM and iA

The 2016 Scion iM hatchback and iA sedan are arriving in more than 1,000 Scion dealerships.

These two models are targeted towards youth and tech savvy consumers who want the latest gadgets and apps in an attractive and affordable set of wheels.

The Scion iM has an MSRP of $18,460 for models equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission and $19,200 for models equipped with CVT transmission. On the other hand, the Scion iA sedan has an MSRP of $15,700 when equipped with 6-speed manual transmission and $16,800 for models equipped with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Both of these prices do not include the $795 delivery, processing, and handling fees.

Doug Murtha, Vice President of Scion Group, said:

“With the arrival of the iM and iA in showrooms, Scion’s evolution moves from talk to reality. This new, savvy generation of drivers will find these cars have features, space, and styling to meet whatever challenge or opportunity comes their way.”
