2016 Scion iM vs 2016 Mazda3
While we’re saddened to see the Scion brand go, we know it is for the greater good of the Toyota brand, and we take solace in the fact that the brand’s last year saw one of the best vehicles it had ever produced released here in Edmonton. The innovative 2016 Scion iM is one of the few vehicles that will be picked up and rebadged by Toyota, but it’s still a 2016 model year Scion model, so we thought we’d compare it to one of its competitors to show why we were such big fans before the brand closed down. To do this, we stacked up the 2016 Scion iM vs 2016 Mazda3.
Advantages of the 2016 Scion iM
As you can see by taking a look at the table above, the two vehicles are pretty comparable, and the battle wasn’t nearly as cut and dry as they usually are here on the website. What it comes down to, is whether you’d rather have an aesthetically-pleasing vehicle with tons of space, or – in our opinion – a less appealing vehicle that happens to have slight advantages in power and fuel efficiency.
While an 18 horsepower disadvantage is unfortunate, it isn’t a game changer, nor is 0.7 l/100km highway fuel efficiency. One will deliver a slightly more enjoyable driving experience, and the other will save a bit of change at the gas station. But the 2016 Scion iM assures you will enjoy every drive by offering the space needed in a compact sedan. With an extra 8.4 cu. ft. in the trunk, and an extra 2.5 cu. ft. in the cabin, you and your passengers will be more comfortable and you’ll be able to bring a lot more cargo along for the ride with you.
If you think this final incarnation of the 2016 Scion iM is the perfect vehicle for you, be sure to give us a call at the Wheaton Toyota on the Trail sales desk or schedule a test drive right here on our website. We can’t wait to see you behind the wheel of a brand new car, and hope we can help you find the right one.
