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 Scion’s lineup and will be based on the Mazda 2 sedan. Scion will also pull the sheet off the iM, a hatchback that’s based on the European Toyota Auris.
Scion is aiming both cars at young buyers with aggressive styling, although don’t 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.
