2016 Scion iA Starts From $15,700* [49 New Photos]

In addition to pricing information for the 2016 iM hatchback, Scion has announced US prices for the Mazda2-based iA sedan as well.

Scion’s first sedan starts from $15,700 for the base version equipped with the six-speed manual transmission and from $16,800 for the six-speed automatic model. Prices don’t include a $795 delivery, processing and handling fee.

As with the iM hatch, there’s only one engine on offer for the iA, a smaller 106hp 1.5-liter four-cylinder which returns 33 mpg city/42 mpg highway/37 mpg combined MPG for the automatic version and 31 mpg city/41 mpg highway/35 mpg combined for the manual. The automatic transmission features a Sport Mode which shifts gears faster.

The Scion iA features MacPherson strut front suspension and torsion beam rear suspension, “tuned for a just-right balance of sporty handling and comfortable ride.” Scion also says steering and brake system tuning received attention “befitting of a sports sedan.” The Scion iA uses a rigid steering mount, which is said to provide a direct yet light feel.

Standard features also include 16-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry with push-button start, low-speed Pre-collision system, rear-view backup camera, 7-inch touch screen multimedia system with voice recognition, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, power exterior mirrors and 60/40 split rear seat back.

Going on sale on September 1, the 2016 Scion iA will be available in seven colors: Stealth black, Abyss, Graphite, Pulse, Sapphire, Sterling and Frost.

    This car looks deeply unhappy with itself 🙁

    • hot new yorker

      Because it’s baby Dart Vader.

    Get rid of that grille slit where the Scion badge is and move the badge to the lower grille, and this would look so much better.

  • Akira

    They took one of the best looking supermini and transformed it into this turd.

    • That Ross Chap

      Completely agree – in my opinion the Mazda 2 hatchback is the very best looking hatchback on the market, including hot hatches so the fact that this is based on it is mind blowing to me

      • Don Dale

        Agreed 200%!!! Now if they’d only bring it to the US.

  • hot new yorker

    Baby Lord Vader.

    This Scion looks angry & overly aggressive for what reason? Here is some possible answers.

    a) It’s mad it was a cute Mazda turned into an ugly Toyota.
    b) Toyota’s designers wanted everyone to know who’s really Boss of the road, especially Lamborghini Aventador owners.
    c) Toyota’s designers wanted the car to put everyone in a foul mood, especially those on their morning commute.
    d) Toyota’s designers wanted to appeal to Teens wishing they were really driving a Charger SRT8.
    e) Bright idea! Why not create a Econ o-car that looks as if its constantly constipated?

    I kinda don’t wanna Imagina a iA hatchback with that front face.

  • fabri99

    Wow they both look so bad…

  • Craig

    There’s just too much going on. [design wise]

  • Bo Hanan

    The front end looks like an insect. How do ugly cars get past the clay mock-up?

  • klowik

    it looks weird. The front grille just doesn’t match the rest of the body. It needs a body with more straight lines.

  • KidRed

    Didn’t think they could mess up the nicely designed Mazda2. I have been proved wrong.

  • Rich Money

    I have to say, this car iszzzz…..

  • Don Dale

    What a monstrosity. I liked it better when it was the new Mazda 2. Wow. Terrible. Lame. Go away. BRING THE MAZDA 2 HATCH STATE SIDE!

  • Darren Tate

    It looks like it’s about to hurl—or hoover up the road. Either way, not a good look.
