Scion iM : New York 2015
No more small cars in the original Scion brand “young” Toyota in the US is within the range with this Scion iM, which is nothing but the wise Auris well known in Europe.
To his arrival on American soil, the Auris iM not take advantage of developments style made at Geneva, but try to give a more dynamic through the design of its grid, its shields or rims 17 inches. It pays better than the dynamism of originality in the Scion tC coupe since the best-selling model in 2014, and the FR-S (aka toyota 86), is not far behind.
Under the hood of this Scion iM, the 1.8L 137 hp, mated to a 6-speed manual or CVT transmission renowned for CVTI-S used to give a touch of sportiness.
New range, but the principle of stable revenue, with only one version available, which will be equipped, after the sale of a wide range of accessories to customize the exterior design, interior, chassis or engine (via accessories TRD).
Scion iM : Concept
Exhibited for the first time in the alleys of Los Angeles show, the compact Scion iM concept found carpets to live by presenting part of the Detroit show.
Between the two shows, nothing has really changed. Toyota brand stamped youth trend in the US market still reveals no technical feature of this concept.
A concept anticipating the arrival of an Americanized Auris in this specific market. A production version which obviously chastened than a concept brash, aggressive and equipped with a body kit evil.
It will now be the time to take the pulse of the real American sedan Auris in its garment production. The brand does not specify any date on this topic or place of presentation.
For the production version of the Scion iM should go back to something more reasonable, almost identical to the note Auris in our region.
