2016 Scion iA

Scion, the Toyota imprint known for its hatchbacks and boxy, small SUVs, has introduced its first-ever sedan: the Scion iA. At an entry-level price of around $16,000, this sedan has anything but entry-level looks.

It sports the familiar "face" of Scion, along with a sporty profile and the trunk in the rear instead of the hatchback style Scion is known for. It's loaded with safety features, including front-side and curtain air bags, rearview backup camera and a low-speed, collision-avoidance system that uses a laser sensor to minimize damage in an accident.

Powered by a 106-horsepower, 1.5-liter engine with a six-speed transmission in either manual or automatic, the new iA will get 37 mpg combined, according to manufacturer estimates.  

The standard audio system comes with a 7-inch display, a remote interface, voice recognition, two USB ports, an auxiliary input and apps including Pandora, Aha and Stitcher. Other standard comfort and convenience features include a folding rear seat to expand hauling capacity, keyless entry with push-button start, tilt and telescoping steering wheel and cruise control.

The 2016 Scion iA will arrive at dealerships late this year.
