Default Scion iA Sedan confirmed



Quote:
A brand dedicated to quirky niche models, Scion is now preparing to launch its first ever sedan.

The Toyota division is teasing the new four-door as well as a new compact hatchback, both of which will debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show.

The all-new Scion iA will be the first sedan in Scionís lineup and will be based on the Mazda 2 sedan. Scion will also pull the sheet off the iM, a hatchback thatís based on the European Toyota Auris.

Scion is aiming both cars at young buyers with aggressive styling, although donít expect a hot hatch. Power for the iM is said to come from the same 1.8-liter 4-cylinder found in the Corolla, while the iA is expected to use the 1.5-liter four-cylinder SkyActiv engine found in the 2016 Mazda 2.

The iA will also be sold in Canada but badged as a Toyota Yaris Sedan.

Both the iA and iM will be revealed on March 31, 2015, the eve of the New York Auto Show.

That's funny because the first thing I thought when I saw that picture was Ford Fiesta. It actually looks a bit like the Ford Escape front end too.

So the larger car has the smaller engine? Is it less powerful too?
