Car and Driver: Scion, Living On: Scion iM, iA To Be Renamed Toyota Corolla iM, Yaris iA

Scioyota badges


The reports of Scion’s death have been greatly exaggerated. Although the nameplate is going away for good, three of the brand’s four cars (all but the tC coupe) are sticking around and being folded into the Toyota lineup for the 2017 model year. To better explain the shift to buyers of the Scion iM and iA, Toyota will leverage its well-known existing model names to create the Toyota Corolla iM hatchback and the Toyota Yaris iA sedan.


This makes particular sense to us in the case of the iM, which is already a Toyota Corolla hatchback under the skin. The iA’s name-change is a bit more complicated, as this Mazda2-based subcompact shares nothing with Toyota’s own Yaris small hatch. But still, the Yaris iA sedan will occupy the same size class as the Yaris, which is available in two-door and four-door hatchback forms.


2016 Scion iM


Other than the new badges, the 2017 Corolla iM and Yaris iA will be identical to the Scion version of themselves. The Corolla iM comes standard with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder mated to either a six-speed manual or a CVT automatic, while the Yaris iA is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder paired with a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic.


The Scion FR-S sports car is also switching over and will be called the Toyota 86. Stay tuned to read more about that model, which also gets a few tweaks to go along with its move to the Toyota side.
