Автомобильный бренд Scion малоизвестен на российском рынке — впрочем, это и не удивительно, так как компания создавалась специально для американского потребителя.

Scion («Сайон») является суббрендом японского автоконцерна Toyota, который был создан в середине 2002 года и позиционируется как производитель молодежных автомобилей. В начале 2016 года руководством Toyota было принято волевое решение о закрытии марки, которое пришлось на август 2016 года, а уже с начала 2017 года автомобили «Сайон» будут реализовываться под брендом своего прародителя.

Последней моделью марки Scion стала модель iM, которая впервые была показана в ноябре 2014 г. в рамках Лос-Анджелесской автомобильной выставки. Сразу стоит отметить, что автомобиль не стал откровением и являет собой несколько перелицованный Toyota Auris второй генерации, получивший более агрессивную внешность, которая непременно придется по душе молодежи, являющейся основной покупательской аудиторией марки.

В отличие от своего «родителя» автомобиль предлагается только с одним двигателем, при этом потенциальные покупатели могут дополнительно заказать специальный пакет от гоночного подразделения Toyota, включающий в себя переработанную систему впрыска, спортивные амортизаторы и ряд прочих элементов, призванных сделать машину более динамичной.

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

From the 2015 New York International Auto Show, Cars.com’s Kelsey Mays takes a look at the 2016 Scion iM.

The all-new Scion iM checks a lot of boxes for a low price, but driving fun isn’t one of them.

That may come as a surprise to anyone who’s seen the iM, a five-door hatchback whose aggressive bodywork recalls the compact-tuner body-type zeitgeist of the 1990s and 2000s. Still, though the styling writes checks the driving experience can’t cash, the iM is otherwise a lot of car for its sub-$20,000 price. That, plus Scion’s reputation for value and reliability, could attract a lot of shoppers who care little for acceleration or handling.

Typical of most Scions (such as the FR-S), the iM is a single-spec car with a lot of standard features, few factory options and a number of optional dealer accessories. It shares its front-wheel-drive underpinnings with the tC sports coupe and comes with a manual or automatic transmission. We tested both.

It shares its front-wheel-drive underpinnings with the tC sports coupe and comes with a manual or automatic transmission. We tested both.

I’m not sold, but Cars.com editors have mixed opinions overall. Styling is subjective; if you like it, read on.

How It Drives
The Scion iM’s sole powertrain — a 1.8-liter four-cylinder shared with the Toyota Corolla — provides modest overall power, but the optional continuously variable automatic transmission puts on a mighty effort to simulate a conventional stepped-gear transmission. CVTs’ gearless setup gives rise to a nonlinear “rubber band” sensation between the gas pedal and actual acceleration, and the iM feels as nonlinear as the rest of them under normal use. With more gas, though, it produces a gratifying stepped feel, including a decent (if contrived) kickdown sensation on the highway. It’s a slow, noisy climb to 70 mph, but it feels like a traditional automatic, and that counts for something.

Still, fun-to-drive rival hatchbacks like the Mazda3 and Volkswagen Golf are quicker. They’re also more fun to throw around. The Scion iM wallows into corners; the steering is a soupy mix of relaxed motions and vague feedback, and the tires lose traction quickly. The nose tracks curves well enough, but the iM feels both lethargic and ponderous throughout the process.

The available six-speed manual does little to rescue the Corolla-like driving experience. With sloppy throws and an awkwardly long clutch takeup, it’s an uninspired unit — and it hurts the iM’s EPA-estimated fuel economy (the manual is rated 31 mpg combined versus the CVT’s competitive 32 mpg). Skip it in favor of the more technological CVT (Which Toyota calls the CVTi-S).

Ride quality is soft but generic. For all the fuss Scion makes over the iM’s independent double-wishbone rear suspension — a theoretical advantage over the semi-independent rear ends common in this class — the iM doesn’t deliver the supposed advantage of better ride control. It’s a reasonably comfortable hatchback, given the P225/45R17 tires don’t have a lot of sidewall to absorb bumps, but it can get clumsy at times.

Interior
For a $20,000 car, cabin quality is competitive with other compacts. There’s generous padding where it counts, including the upper doors and a padded section where the driver’s knee touches the center tunnel. The dashboard has a ribbon of faux-leather stitching that evokes the real stuff far better than the molded stitching along too many Toyota dashboards. The upscale piano-black climate switches are light years beyond the clumsy plastic knobs in the Scion tC and Toyota Yaris. Cheap-looking silvery plastic, something Toyota used to cram everywhere, is sparse.

Dual-zone automatic climate control is standard (a rarity at this price range), as are a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated power-folding mirrors, automatic headlights and the usual power conveniences you’d expect in a compact car. Typical of Scion, the iM forgoes any significant factory options, including a lot of the luxury features you can get elsewhere in this class: If you want heated or power-adjustable seats, leather upholstery, keyless access or even a moonroof, look elsewhere.

Backseat headroom is good, but the three-position bench is otherwise snug — a result of limited legroom, a low seating position and short bottom cushions. Cabin materials are more basic in back, but that’s a drop-off most compacts exhibit.

Cargo & Storage
Cargo space behind the rear seats is 20.8 cubic feet. That’s a little short of comparable compact hatchbacks. The seats fold down in a 60/40 split for plenty more room, enough to easily fit some golf clubs and bags of groceries.

Ergonomics & Electronics
Typical of Scion, the iM’s stereo fits into a dashboard cutout. That makes it easier to swap for an aftermarket unit, but it looks as inelegant as any stereo from the 1990s or 2000s. The head unit, a 7-inch Pioneer touch-screen that you can upgrade with multi-information navigation for another $900, is a usability mess. The on-screen buttons are small, and the physical controls next to them are even smaller. The volume knob is miniscule, and the tuning knob is missing entirely.

The stereo does, however, have a lot of features. HD radio, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, USB and auxiliary ports, and Aha internet radio integration are all standard.

Safety
The Scion iM hadn’t been crash-tested as of publication. Standard features include eight airbags and a backup camera, but the iM lacks forward collision, lane departure or blind spot warning systems. Click here to see a full list of standard safety features, or here to see our Car Seat Check, which revealed some major space limitations while trying to fit a rear-facing infant seat.

Value in Its Class
Including destination, the Scion iM base starts at $19,255 with a manual transmission or $19,995 with an automatic. That reflects a fairly complete package of standard convenience features with only a handful of available dealer-installed accessories. Given the generous features, plus Scion’s two-year free maintenance, the iM has enough value to deserve attention from anyone shopping a modestly equipped variant of the Hyundai Elantra GT, Ford Focus, Mazda3 or Kia Soul.

I’m not sure that makes the Scion iM the most appealing Scion, however. Scion recently introduced another car, the iA subcompact sedan, that’s based on the next-generation Mazda2. It has quicker reflexes, comparable seat-of-the-pants acceleration, better gas mileage and more safety features than the iM — and it starts around $16,500. If you’re looking at an iM, be sure to check out the iA while you’re at it. At the end of the day, the biggest reason not to buy an Scion iM might come from inside Scion’s own showroom.

Final Word

Compared to the all-new Scion iA sedan, which is precise and eager (built by Mazda for Scion), the all-new Scion iM falls short. You still get a lot of function and style for the money, but the lame power, choppy ride and cheap upholstery are disappointing.

  • 2016 Scion iM

Scion isn’t even old enough to qualify as a teenager yet, but like any good adolescent, it’s already gotten itself into quite a lot of trouble over its brief life.

Launched in 2003 to much fanfare, Toyota’s youngest marque reached its sales zenith in 2006, and today, demand for its models is less than half of what it was at its peak. Once hailed as an incubator for risky designs and as a model for attracting younger, hipper customers, Scion has languished in recent years, in part due to a dearth of new products.

That changes starting right now, with the Scion iM hatchback shown here, along with an even less expensive new sedan sourced from Mazda dubbed iA . Both models hit showrooms this month, and they’re the first tangible sign in years that Toyota hasn’t given up on its experimental small-car brand. These cars are worth paying attention to, because they’re well constructed and offer good value.

In profile, the Scion iM recalls the defunct Toyota Matrix (that’s not a bad thing).

CALGARY, AB: Scion is literally putting all its compact hatchback eggs into one basket with the 2016 Scion iM Hatchback .

The iM is what’s called a mono-trim model. Except for a six-speed manual or seven-step CVT automatic transmission, all iMs in Canada will be identical, not counting a choice of six colours.

What you see is what you get.

It’s an interesting marketing tactic, considering Scion has not exactly set the world on fire in Canada.

But Scion Canada feels the iM is positioned to be the “core” model for a brand.

This starts with referring to iM as a “Scion by Toyota,” the inference being it has all the virtues such as reliability and residual value that have made Toyota what it is today.

Then it is a compact hatchback. About the only other hatchback the company makes is the Prius hybrid or sub-compact Yaris.

iM fills a major void in the Toyota-Scion-Lexus syllabus created when the much loved; Cambridge-built Toyota Matrix (2003-2014) went away. It was so popular GM even sold it as the Pontiac Vibe.

It is also aimed directly at a younger crowd who are ultra connected to the emerging technology that is sweeping the globe like an electronic tsunami.

There is no CD changer. There is no satellite radio. And if you don’t have a smartphone like me (by choice) you can’t hook up to Bluetooth or AHA, the Bluetooth-based audio app.

When it comes to tunes, there is also a USB slot.

If you want a navigation system, Scion dealers will fit you out with an aftermarket unit, but the idea is owners will simply find it easier to navigate with their smartphones.

Besides the navi, dealers will offer a few accessories such as body graphics, cargo area enhancements, interior light kit, all-weather floor mats along with a roof rack system.

There will also be a line of TRD (Toyota Racing Development) performance accessories including an air intake system, anti-roll bar and lowering springs.

The price of the manual is $21,165 and the CVT is $21,990 and that’s it.

Here’s what you don’t get – the aforementioned navi, sunroof, leather seating and one wheel choice, a 17-inch alloy.

Here’s what you get – 4.2-inch TFT driver information display, seven-inch infotainment screen, heated/folding outside mirrors with turn signal repeater, dual zone air conditioning, eight airbags including driver knee and front passenger seat cushion bag, hill hold assist and backup camera.

What you also get is four-wheel disc brakes with a MacPherson strut front suspension and a double wishbone rear setup and a full suite of safety equipment.

The reason for the wishbones is the suspension doesn’t intrude as much in the cargo area, which is 588 litres (20.8 cu ft) augmented by a standard 60/40 split/fold rear seat.

The exterior is what I would call urban chic with a novel upper and lower grille separated by a thin piano black panel that sets off the halogen projector headlight grouping.

Inside, the steering wheel is leather wrapped and the piano black treatment is carried across the instrument panel and centre stack/console. The seats are top grade for support and the fabric is also high calibre.

There is one engine, a 1.8-litre DOHC inline four-cylinder with 137 hp and 126 lb/ft of torque driving the front wheels.

Transport Canada fuel rating for the manual is 8.6/6.6/7.7L/100 km city/highway/combined, while the CVT is 8.3/6.3/7.4L/100 km another case where an automatic is more efficient.

Another reason for going with the CVT is, beside the seven sequential “gears”, there is also a button on the centre console marked “Sport” that changes shift points and holds gears longer. Hit the button at anything over 80 km/h and it almost vaults ahead.

But where you will really appreciate it is on climbs. With just 126 lb/ft of torque the engine runs out of revs going uphill quickly in normal or Eco modes.

For the driver, the 4.2-inch TFT multi-information display within the instrument cluster displays drive mode activity, including the “gear” position and other vehicle information.

Thanks to other “standard extras” such as an acoustic glass windshield, the iM is quiet and the ride refined for a car in this class, which my co-driver and I both noticed on the main highway in and around Calgary where the press introduction of the iM was held.

Up in rolling hill country, secondary roads were heavily pock-marked by frost heaves, so the suspension had its work cut out for it with the rear wishbones giving (in my opinion) the iM a more planted feeling than a torsion beam.

The electric power steering was communicative and precise, which shows how far these systems have progressed.

Scion sees the iM as more than the core model of its three-car lineup, but a “conquest” model meaning they expect to attract up to 70 per cent of buyers from other brands and they are doing it partly by expanding the number of Scion outlets in Canada by 50 — now 146.

It’s a new world and Scion is out to get it.

Motor y transmisión

En cuanto a la motorización, Scion iM viene equipado con un motor 1.8 litros de cuatro cilindros que genera 137 caballos de fuerza y 126 libras por pie de torque, acoplado a una transmisión manual de seis velocidades.

Para la caja manual está disponible con el Asistente de Arranque en Pendientes, que evitará que el coche se vaya para atrás en esas calles empinadas que tantos problemas nos dan cuando manejamos auto estándar.

Asimismo está disponible la transmisión CVTi-S como equipo opcional. De acuerdo a Scion esta caja responde mucho mejor ya que cuenta con un modo Sport y modo manual. En el modo Sport, la transmisión altera los puntos de embrague y proporciona un manejo más preciso a través de la dirección y la respuesta del acelerador.

Otos detalles del Scion iM es su carrocería de aluminio de alta resistencia, suspensión delantera tipo McPherson y trasera independiente de doble horquilla; barra estabilizadora y dirección electrónicamente asistida.

El equipo opcional incluye un sistema de navegación, una completa gama de accesorios TRD para que le des un toque deportivo personalizado a tu auto e incluso accesorios para mascotas. Como podemos ver, Scion continua pensando mucho en sus clientes.
