2017 Toyota Corolla iM Edmonton AB
In case you missed the news earlier this year, the Toyota Motor Co. decided to close the doors on its innovative, youthful Scion brand. Rather than simply getting rid of all the Scion vehicles, even the ones that showed signs of success, Toyota decided to bring a few of the popular vehicles into the fold, including the Scion iM. Next year, the former Scion hatchback will become the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM in Edmonton AB, a special hatchback model of the iconic compact sedan.
2017 Toyota Corolla iM Specs & Features
While there have been hatchback versions of the Corolla in the past, the compact car is most commonly known as a sedan. While the Scion brand was no longer living up to expectations, Toyota believes that the iM will bring exactly what the Corolla needs to deliver a successful hatchback model to customers shopping in the compact market – a blend of efficiency, power and versatility.
Its standard 1.8L 4-cylinder engine delivers 137 horsepower while achieving 8.8 l/100km city and 6.8 l/100km on the highway. That’s saving you quite a bit of money at the pump, without sacrificing too much power. As for space, it offers 20.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the back row, which is quite a bit more than the standard Corolla sedan. Features like 60/40-splitting rear seats make the small hatchback even more versatile.
The Corolla iM will be packed with plenty of other great features that will make it fun to drive, like Aha Radio, Gracenote database, 6 speakers and a 7” touchscreen. But perhaps more importantly than any of those is the Corolla iM’s safety features. Equipped with the new whiplash-lessening seats, the Star Safety System AND the Toyota Safety Sense C package, which includes lane departure alert, automatic high beams and a pre-collision system.
