The H-Team Welcomes Two New Members To The Scion Family
The all new Scion iA is changing how automakers think about entry level sedans. The iA is an affordable car that is also stylish. Smooth curves and LED daytime running lights give it a fierce looking exterior. Inside the 85.9 cubic foot interior you and up to four passengers are surrounded by top of the line standard features including Bluetooth, push button start, backup camera, a beautiful 7-inch touch screen display, and 6 speaker audio system.
It doesn’t stop there. Under the hood is a high tech engine that boasts 106 HP at 6,000 RPM yet still offers efficient fuel economy – it sips while it zips. The iA comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission that is compact, lightweight, and super low on friction with a short stroke – making it one of the sweetest-shifting manual transmissions around.
For those who prefer an automatic transmission, the available 6-speed automatic will be intriguing. Engineered for lightweight, low friction, and a direct-shift feel, the automatic has a bit of a dual personality. It takes off from a standing start with the smoothness only a torque converter automatic can deliver, yet very quickly afterward locks the converter for quicker, more direct shifts and higher fuel economy. For drivers seeking greater torque feel, a Sport Mode feature is available with the flip of a switch.
Not only is the Scion iA packed with premium features, it is also ultra-safe. When it comes to visibility, the Scion iA has 20/20 vision. Blind spots are minimized and other safety features are maximized. The iA has an airbag system that will help keep you safe in the event of an accident, furthermore iA has next generation accident avoidance technology. It sports a low-speed pre-collision system that is designed to apply braking power if it determines that a frontal collision is imminent under certain low speed conditions.
The 2016 Scion iA delivers affordable luxury; the kind of luxury everyone wants but few get. Until now.
