Scion IM 2016
Hatchbacks usually found to full fill the needs that didn’t give luxurious feeling to the customers but some companies are changing the trends like Mini and Scion that are giving nice & favorable vehicles in low budget. One example vehicle from Scion is here for 2016 that is pretty cool looking from every angle and also have its interior design more than expectations. As Scion is the sub brand of Toyota that is why this vehicle IM look much similar to one of Toyota’s car “Auris” , as we are discussing here about Scion IM so we will discuss some nice properties of IM for 2016.
What is good in Scion IM?
- As I mentioned earlier this vehicle provide more than expectation so does it has nice interior that give you luxurious feeling all because of its impressive sporty seats & use of leather at multiple places like around the steering wheel & gear shift knob.
- One most attractive thing inside of Scion IM is its center console that has attractive design & nice touch screen that is quite responsive as well & no complaints have been found against it.
- In terms of comfort this vehicle has great seats but more important is the space that is no doubt enough to hold five persons comfortably especially rear seats that have enough head and leg room where adults with height of 6 feet can adjust easily.
- Another positive aspect of its spacious interior is the capacity for luggage, yes it has a nice spacious trunk that will adjust your lot of burden inside that lot of hatchback usually not afford.
In terms of Driving:
- This vehicle is available with two different transmissions one is CVT & other is Manual, current one is Manual but good thing about its Manual shifter is that it didn’t require much power to shift.
- This is a smooth vehicle that performs all its operations smoothly & gives you easy driving.
- There is no doubt that this vehicle is playful and fun to drive that also do good on corners with really sharp handling, full independent rear wheel suspensions make this vehicle much better on corners.
- Fuel economy of vehicle rated by company is 27 in city & 38 on highway that is no doubt a nice fuel economy for 1.8 liter hatchback.
What does Scion IM lack?
- As it has pretty good functionalities but Satellite radio is not present that mainly preferred by lot of customers.
- In terms of performance it didn’t give best all because it has 1.8 liter naturally aspirated engine that only produce 137 horse power where to get 0-60 it takes 8.9 seconds that is lot of time especially for those who prefer sporty behavior of vehicle.
- On picking speed & with increase in wind noise inside vehicle also increases but comparing to others of same class & price tag it is still much better.
- It may not be impressive for those who want more power but if give overall ratings than it is a nice choice in this price.
What is New in Scion IM 2016?
- Everything has been improved in 2016 where car feels lighter & little friskier than previous model, importantly addition of Manual transmission give more control to drivers.
