New for 2016:Scion
Thom Blackett | Sep 24, 2015
Initially imagined as a youth-oriented sub-brand for Toyota Motor Corp., Scion has instead drawn the relatively limited interest of buyers young and not-so-young with products ranging from the fairly sporty tC to the funky yet utilitarian xB. After a long run, the latter has been discontinued for 2016, though the tC hatchback returns with a few minor updates, along with its more aggressively styled and tuned sibling, the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) FR-S. Joining the lineup are the all-new 2016 iA, a small sedan sourced from Mazda that, in typical Scion fashion, is available in a single trim level, and the iM, a 5-door hatch highlighted by a standard body kit, a host of standard features, and a punchy 137-horsepower 4-cylinder engine.
Following is a list of new or updated features for each 2016 Scion model:
