Overview (Final Score: A)
The 2016 Scion iA is a brand new sedan for the entry-level compact class. It was introduced this year along with the new Scion iM as the latest in the lineup of compact offerings from Toyota’s youth brand. The Scion iA offers what we consider a best-in-class all around package for driving, interior comfort, and fuel economy. The fact that it’s a Top Safety Pick+ choice by the IIHS is also a big deal for the compact class.
