All New 2016 Scion iM

Today I would like to talk a little about the 2016 Scion iM. This vehicle will replace the Iconic Scion XB for 2016. While they are both 4 door hatch backs the similarities stop there. The 2016 Scion iM is much more stylish, has a sportier ride and appearance and has more standard features than the XB.

The redesign

The first thing that you will notice is the more aggressive appearance of the 2016 Scion iM. Then you will be drawn to the sporty Piano Black honey comb grill with matching side inserts. LED day time running lights up front along with auto on off Projector beam headlights up front compliment the grill. LED rear tail lights along with LED turn signals integrated into the side mirrors finish off the aggressive look. 17” Alloy wheels not only add to the appearance but help enhance the sporty ride and provide the perfect cover for the 4 Wheel disc brakes. A shark fin antenna provides the perfect compliment the aggressive body lines that run down the length of the vehicle. In true Scion fashion the whole package is finished with a chrome tip exhaust.

Sporty and Powerful

The Scion iM is not just another pretty face. Underneath the Sporty exterior sits a 1.8 Litter 137 horsepower motor coupled with either a 6 Speed manual transmission or a 7 speed CVT Automatic capable of achieving an estimated 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. To keep the tires planted the ground the Scion iM uses MacPherson struts up front and a Double wishbone rear suspension along with front and rear stabilizer bars. Something you would find the Sporty Scion TC. Electronic power steering not only offers a more efficient system but adds to the driving experience. The iM also comes standard with vehicle stability and traction which are part of the star safety system.

I will get further into more details regarding the impressive standard interior features in a later series.
