2017 Toyota Corolla iM Canadian Release Date
If you remember, several months ago we announced that Scion was being discontinued. Many people’s first question after hearing this was what would happen to some of the fan-favorite vehicles that belonged to the Scion brand. The 2016 model year was the first for the Scion iM, but it quickly became one of the most popular small cars on the market. For the 2017 model year, it will be a trim level for the always-popular Toyota Corolla. And now, we cannot wait for the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM Canadian release date.

What is the Corolla iM?
So as you likely know, the Scion iM is a compact hatchback still available for the 2016 model year, but with Scion being discontinued it won’t be made as a 2017 model. However, Toyota recognized how popular it became in its limited run after debuting in late 2015, so they’re going to simply rebrand and repackage it as a Toyota vehicle. Rather than adding a completely new model to an already-expansive lineup, the iM will instead join the Corolla as a new trim level. The Corolla is a compact sedan, but it doesn’t have a hatchback trim level. So essentially, the Corolla iM will become the hatchback version of the Toyota Corolla.
We’re quite excited for its upcoming Canadian release date, as it combines sporty looks with immense versatility thanks to things like 60/40-split rear seats and a spacious cargo hold. But it will also be packed with all kinds of great technologies and interior features like a 7” display audio touchscreen featuring Aha Radio. Furthermore, the Corolla iM will be available in some pretty awesome, fun exterior colors not normally available on the Toyota Corolla.
Throw in the awesome Toyota Safety Sense suite and you’ve got the total package. We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available, but at this time we know the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM will be released sometime this fall.
