    Two Scion Models Gearing to Go: All-New 2016 Scion iM and Scion iA Priced to Please

     

    SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 29, 2015 – The next great adventure is well within reach. The all-new 2016 Scion iM hatchback and 2016 Scion iA sedan both deliver versatility and premium features that will fuel drivers’ fun, with outstanding prices to fit their finances too. Both vehicles race into showrooms Sept. 1, 2015.

     

    With an MSRP of $18,460 for the manual transmission and $19,200 for the CVTi-S model, the Scion iM is a fun-to-drive hatchback with the space and technology necessary for impromptu escapes from the daily grind. Its sporty sibling, the Scion iA, is Scion’s first sedan and well-priced at $15,700 for the 6-speed manual transmission and $16,800 for the 6-speed automatic. A $795 delivery, processing and handling fee is not included in the MSRP. With Scion’s no hassle, no haggle Pure Price, the same price posted in the dealership is the price customers pay.

    Scion iM: Space and Spunk for Drivers on the Go
    The iM draws some style inspiration from Scion’s FR-S sports car with the hexagon lower grille, sharp-eyed headlights and side bezels. But this hatchback makes its own unmistakable statement with its dynamic profile, piano black grille treatment, sporty body aero kit and LED daytime running lights. Buyers can turn up visual impact with available colors: Blizzard Pearl, Classic Silver Metallic, Black Sand Pearl, Barcelona Red Metallic, Spring Green Metallic and Electric Storm Blue.

     

    The 137 horsepower 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine uses Valvematic continuously variable valve timing technology to offer a broad torque curve, so the iM feels responsive in all situations. The chassis, with double-wishbone rear suspension and standard 17-inch alloy wheels, is ready to smooth out bumps and curves.

     

    The standard 6-speed stick shift promises an engaging driving experience, while the optional automatic features an intelligent Continuously Variable Transmission with both a Sport Mode and manual shifting capability. Both transmission options hit a sweet spot of performance and efficiency, with an EPA rating of 28 city/37 highway/ 32 combined for the CVTi-S and 27 city/36 highway/31 combined for the manual transmission.

     

    A premium feel at a value comes from the iM’s lengthy list of standard amenities:

    • 60/40 fold-down rear seats and standard cargo cover
    • 7-inch Pioneer Display Audio unit with standard HD Radio and Aha™
    • Rear-view backup camera
    • Real leather-wrapped steering wheel
    • Scion’s first 4.2-inch color TFT multi-information display
    • Dual-zone automatic A/C control
    • Color-keyed heated power-folding exterior mirrors
    • Hill Start Assist

    Scion iA: Athletic and Agile Choice for the Road Ahead
    Scion’s first sedan enters the world with some serious style. The iA cuts a striking profile with daring curves, hexagon lower grille and sophisticated touches, including a piano black bumper treatment, chrome grille surround and chrome tailpipe. The spacious trunk gives it a distinctive look in the segment. The color choices deliver a range of vibrant intensity: Stealth black, Abyss, Graphite, Pulse, Sapphire, Sterling and Frost.

     

    Don’t be fooled by its size, the iA is big in both spirit and technology. The basic ingredients: a high-strength body structure, quick-revving, high-compression 1.5-liter engine with 106 horsepower; choice of 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmissions; and standard 16-inch alloy wheels. The Scion iA zips as it sips with EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 33 city/42 highway/37 combined MPG for the automatic version 31 city/ 41 highway/ 35 combined for the manual. A Sport Mode feature is available with the flip of a switch.

     

    The Scion iA re-defines “entry-level” at every turn. The MacPherson strut front suspension and torsion beam rear suspension are tuned for a just-right balance of sporty handling and comfortable ride. Steering and brake system tuning, in particular, received attention befitting of a sports sedan. The Scion iA uses a rigid steering mount, which provides a direct yet light feel also unexpected in low-priced, high-MPG rated models.

     

    Scion’s famous mono-spec strategy brings together standard features to impress:

    • 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
    • Versatile 60/40 split rear seat back

    So the Scion iM will be the same base price as a Sonic LTZ 6-speed manual or a nicely equipped LT automatic?

     

     

    Good luck with that.

    Those both look terrible, the engines sound weak and terrible, and they seem overpriced.  This brand needs closed down.  They don't even build sporty or youthful cars.  Make the Corolla in hatch and coupe body styles, move the FR-S to Toyota (as it is everywhere else in the world), make the tC into a new Celica if they want a fwd sports car and call it a day.

     

    Interestingly I just saw some commentary on how a lot of older seniors are buying Scion, because they are cheap and simple no frills kind of cars and it has Toyota reliability.  And young people aren't buying them as was the target audience because young people want horsepower, touch screens, in car apps and technology, etc.

    The iM will have Toyota's reliability reputation. I am glad for a Corolla hatchback in the US.

    But what would sell better, a Corolla hatchback, or a Scion iM?  What would sell better a Toyota GT86 (or rename to Celica) or a Scion FR-S?  I think the Scion brand makes no sense.  Their products are rebadged Toyotas from other markets that would sell better if they called it a Toyota.

     

    The Mazda 2 didn't sell here, so Scion thinks they can rebadge it and sell it for Mazda 3 money?  This brand should be gone by 2020.

    Is that worth a $4k price increase?

    These two products answer questions that nobody asked. Perhaps somebody in Toyota really does want Scion to close down, and the best way to do it is to give the brand yesterday's leftovers; plan their failure; and win over the rest of the firm in shutting down the brand once and for all.

     

    Scion is on the brink because of decay that stems from lack of investment. This isn't enough.

      Subaru has announced pricing for the 2020 Subaru Legacy and 2020 Subaru Outback. Both get modest price increases, but also increases in base equipment.  The Legacy starting price is $200 more than last year at $24,995, and the Outback is $300 more at $26,645. 
      Some of the biggest equipment upgrades is that Subaru's Eyesight now features Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering, a heads up monitoring system, LED headlights for low and high beam, and high beam assist. 
      Both cars are built on Subaru's new global platform that offers increased safety, and reductions in noise, vibration, and harshness. The base engine is a revised 2.5 liter boxer-four that produces 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque. An upgraded 2.4T boxer engine is standard in Limited XT models and produces 260 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 277 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm.  Both engines come with start-stop to improve fuel efficiency.  
      Fuel economy figures are as follows:
      Legacy 2.5 - 35 MPG highway
      Legacy XT - 32 MPG highway
      Outback 2.5 - 33 MPG highway
      Outback XT - 30 MPG highway
      The only transmission available is Subaru's Lineartronic CVT that now has an 8-speed manual shift mode via paddles on the steering wheel. 
      Six different trims are available on the Legacy and seven different trims available on the Outback. Inside, the infotainment system features dual 7.0 inch touch screens.  The upper screen controls the audio with Apple Car Play and Android Auto, while the lower screen controls climate control, controls for Eyesight, and other vehicle systems. 
      Both the Legacy and Outback are built in Lafayette, IN, and will go on sale this fall.

      On February 28th, Tesla announced that they would be closing most of their retail locations and moving to an online sales model in order to cut costs.  In a blog post yesterday, Tesla has reversed course on that position somewhat, and will not only close a portion of their stores. 
      Some of their locations, around 10%, have already closed and Telsa said they would have closed anyway due to low foot traffic.  Another 20% of locations are currently under review and depending on performance will be decided on in the next few months. 
      All sales will still remain online only, and customers who come into the stores will be shown how to order their vehicle online.  The 1000 mile or 7 day return policy (minus the non-refundable delivery charge) will remain in effect for any customer who has doubts about their purchase.  The remaining Tesla stores will have cars available for test drive and will keep a small number of vehicles in stock for people who want to take delivery immediately. 
      To compensate for this change in direction, Tesla will be raising prices by 3% on the more expensive trims of Model 3, and the Model S and Model X.  The base Model 3 remains $35,000 plus $1,200 delivery charge. Current prices are valid until March 18th.
