Model Highlights

Scion adds a new model to the lineup this year, in the form of the subcompact iA sedan. Based on the stellar Mazda2 underpinnings, the front-wheel-drive iA rides on 16-inch alloy wheels and includes front struts and a stabilizer bar and a rear torsion beam suspension. Power comes from a 16-valve, 106-horsepower 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, which can be paired with either a standard 6-speed manual or optional automatic transmission. In the automatic, fuel economy is rated at 33 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway, while the manual-equipped iA returns slightly less, at 31 and 41, respectively.

The iA is available in one trim level. Standard features include power mirrors with integrated turn signals, a chrome-tipped exhaust, and halogen headlights. Inside you'll find push-button start, a backup camera, air conditioning, power windows and locks, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, and a 60/40 split-fold rear seat. A seven-inch touchscreen display controls the Scion Access Connect multi-media system (though a large central knob does the job, too), while USB ports, Bluetooth hands-free phone and music streaming, along with voice recognition and SMS text functionality, provide cutting-edge connectivity.

Other than the $1,100 automatic transmission, the only other option in the iA is an $419 SD card pre-loaded with navigation software, to be installed at a dealer.

The iA is also loaded with safety features like dynamic stability control, traction control and anti-lock brakes, plus a low-speed collision system, brake override and a host of front, rear and side airbags.

Model News

The Scion iA is an all-new model for 2016. The well-equipped subcompact sedan is based on the competent Mazda2 platform, and its 1.5L four returns an impressive 33 mpg city, 42 mpg highway. MSRP is $16,495.

Value Writeup

The Scion iA is a new entry in the crowded subcompact field. Up against segment stalwarts like the Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta and Hyundai Accent, the iA more than holds its own. With a sporty Mazda-based platform, standard features typically reserved for more upmarket cars, and a price right near the bottom of segment, the iA is a lot of car for the money and one certainly worth a closer look.
