This article summarises our thoughts on the newest addition, or the fourth iteration, to the Scion iA line; the 2016 Scion iA.
New 2016 Scion iA News
The Scion iA is the latest car from Toyota, and is designed to appeal to a more youthful crowd. It’s a much needed alteration and redesign, after all, the Scion series of cars has suffered in recent years.
The new Scion iA is expected to be incredibly affordable, starting at $16000, and for that money, will provide a stylish and elegant ride. Our article will talk you through some of the expected features when it comes to specs and the interior.
2016 Scion iA Release Date
The release date for the Scion iA is still largely unknown – especially when it comes to the exact date – but the manufacturer and other outlets suggest that it is due to for shipping imminently, and a release date in the last quarter of 2015 is the most plausible estimate of the Scion iA’s release date.

2016 Scion iA Interior
The interior of the Scion iA is similar to that of the Mazda 2 hatchback. However, there are notable features in the 2016 version which will bring new life to the design, and give a better user experience for the driver. Among these include a three pronged steering wheel for the inner-race car driver-feel, and a central user display feature which mean that the interior feels a bit more space-age, or at least modern, than previous iterations of the same car.
These things add to a sense of luxury, as well as providing what is essentially a tool for every job. The car has a built in multimedia system, it has a very adaptable back seat configuration for families and single people alike, and it has those handy things we’ve come to expect of modern cars such as rear-cameras to help with reversing into parking spaces.
2016 Scion iA Specs and Other Details
The car is expected to have a 1.5 liter engine which is pretty powerful, and the horsepower comes in three different sizes; 75, 95 or 115, so whether you’re looking for sedate or hair-raising, there’s an option for you.
It has either six speed manual or six speed automatic transmission as well, and reaches an average of thirty seven miles to the gallon.
It’s a smaller car, but feels like a larger one, due to a little working around by the designers and engineers on the outside. Essentially, when it comes to space, you get more space for your money.

Whilst nobody can guarantee the quality of a car before its release, Toyota has always delivered. Even with reliability issues in recent years with some of their newer models, Toyota have been professional and fixed whatever issues arise. The look and design of the new iA seems to suggest that there is life in the old series yet, and the fact that such a sleek design is possible at such an affordable rate is testament to the power of Toyota as one of the largest and most successful manufacturers in the world.
