2016 Scion iA Sherwood Park AB
Since its inception, the Scion brand have been putting out hip vehicles that target young drivers looking to purchase their first vehicle on their own. This has led to many of the vehicles being 2-door coupes. In fact, the only vehicles with four doors that the brand has manufactured are the three hatchbacks throughout its timeline, the xA, xD and currently the xB. But all that is set to change in the 2016 model year as the brand introduces its very first 4-door sedan to the lineup, the 2016 Scion iA near Sherwood Park AB.
We haven’t got a lot of specific numbers as of yet, but we have got a lot of estimated details surrounding the very first sedan to come to the Scion lineup. For instance, the subcompact sedan is estimated to have a staring manufacturer’s suggested retail price of well under $20,000. The current estimation is said to be in the $16,000 range. While no specific cubic footage has been released, engineers have said that the cabin of the supermini will be spacious and filled with premium features and amenities.
Additionally, we do already know that a 1.5L engine will sit beneath the hood. The EPA hasn’t performed testing yet, but Scion estimates an incredible highway fuel efficiency of 5.6 l/100km. This engine can then be paired to either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, whichever you prefer. Plus it will be outfitted with a few the new Toyota pre-collision safety system features.
