Great commuter car

This is a great commuter car or a would make a great first car. It handles nicely and sports mode gives it nice zip for 106 hp. Driving it to and from is really enjoyable, for me this is the best part of the car. You also have the option to get great MPG depending on your driving. The trunk is surprisingly big and the build materials are for such a low priced car. 7 inch Navigation ( Got SD card for cheap off internet) is great also lots of hacks you can do to add Android auto or Apple car play (Just do a google search) .

It is a Mazda

Toyota did not make it. Toyota has a deal with Mazda to have Mazda make it in Mexico. That is why your VIN number has a M in it (Mexico). Wanted Toyota Reliablity , hopefully Mazda builds reliable cars. Do not know what kind of reliablity the IA has because it is a new model (in the US). Cannot find info on how reliable it is in other countries. Toyota now sells them as a Yaris IA. Tires are an oddball size so finding them is a chore. For an econobox it looks sporty. Great gas mileage. If you are concerned about the lack of power press the sport mode lever which is below the gearshift, but I am guessing that fuel economy will suffer.

Just what I wanted

Ok....so for the most part the car is great; fuel economy for me is 36mpg average and I drive in traffic to and from work (60 miles), I filled my tank for 15 bucks today which is amazing, technology is great and sound system is up to par, Bluetooth is great with no static when making calls or playing music, touch screen and reverse camera put the car at the top of the subcompact class, ample trunk and front seat space, low noise pollution from outaide the vehicle, and an overall well put together interior. I've put 2000 miles on the car and everything is a breeze thus far. BUT there has to be some bad right? Of course...the acceleration could be better and I find myself really pushing the car at times to get up to speed(I've been known to have a "led foot" and come from a car with a larger engine) , it might be me but the manual transmission, specifically first and second gear can be a little jumpy especially when trying to gain speed quickly(again may be a personal issue), there is a slight tick in the engine which makes me fear things to come but I will address it while under warranty, the tires and overall road grip could be better but are fine for someone who doesn't take turns hard (like me), the paint could be of better quality as I already have a little chip here and there, while there is plenty of room inside the car I could see how larger people would have trouble in the back seats, the touch screen can be dim and hard to see, and some materials in the interior are flimsy. PLEASE do not let these bad point sway you from even trying this car as I am really reaching to find problems...it's all around AMAZING. I have tried to justify any problems with the car as possibly a personal issue or maybe due to my own driving habits. If you're looking for something that is stylish, fuel efficient, reliable, and very affordable I would recommend this car hands down. I've done my research and had many test drives(Honda fit, Chevy cruze, sentra, versa, elantra, forte) but the moment I got in this car I was sold without a doubt in my mind. I could not give 5 stars because every car comes with its flaws but it's close.

Nice try. Really.

EPA sticker says 42 mpg open road. I get a good deal more. Long trips over 50 mpg. Seems the reason to buy the car. Initial impression is very high but fades quickly once you notice how ill fitting and how poorly mounted all the rubber seals and plastic shields fit. Like a child's toy. Things you see the first time you hand wash it and not before. A good amount of water drains from the doors after a wash. 3 or 4 more times normal. Water even enters and exits around the mirror mounts at garden hose pressures. That's going to be a rust issue quickly. Engine compartment however seems quite water tight as does the trunk. The paint is nicely sprayed but is DEAD soft and easily chips and scratches with an impact of a medium sized bug. We don't have 2K clears and ovens in Mexico? I have more chips and mars in this car in a month than my last five cars combine. "Party" metallic and dark colors does this cheap materials finishing no favors. Pure eye candy with no substance. There is so little clear on this car Perfect-it II is iffy. Add in the special "only tire" available to suit the computers roll out and "J" flange alloy wheels which even the factory seems not to care about considering the inboard flange mounted wheel weights. Really, on a painted wheel? Why the tape weight in the visible area ONLY then? Corrosion is corrosion no matter which side of the wheel it's on. At least the tires are not priced silly...if you can find one. The nose is a love it or hate thing. I like it. As chrome is no longer really chrome I wish "They" would just monotone color trim and quite trying to pitch a dead horse. Real chrome or find another finish folks. Pealing chrome looks worse that pitting. It lacks luster, depth and has zero protection. Not that it matters over PLASTIC. At 6'' and 195 lbs. I challenge the interior space of compact cars and this one more than fits my frame. Even with the seat adjustment set to it highest level I have plenty of headroom, shoulder and leg room. The box around your knees could be more ample (Narrow the console or move the vertical line forward) but the seat will have you taking a break long before your knees feel cramped. Unpadded brick. Tilt/telo wheel is a nice touch and has good range. I don't ride in the back but I stuffed a 285 lb. salesman back there. I bought this car after my third new Honda Civic and noting the hideous finishes and panel fits on the new 2016 Civics. Ops!!! Ergonomics are overall very good and not too busy. Controls well placed and make sense. I thought Sport mode would quicken the shift. Nope, just lops off two gears and uselessly raises the sift point a few hundred rpm. Sounds faster, isn't. I prefer the manual shift but would like paddles so my hands stay where my hands should be. Day time glare renders most instruments useless. What's that about? Ride is to lauded. For it's weight and wheelbase you would swear you were in a car with 10" more reach and a thousand pounds more weight. Not plush mind you by not econobox buck board harsh either. Out rides cars a full segment higher. Good handling. Steering is neutral to slightly tight and very pedal responsive to correction. Zoom-zoom. Very predictable turn in on very so-so tires and silly narrow rims. I'd like to comment on the brakes but the car is not brake limited. It's tire limited on the haul down. Brakes stop tires. Tires stop cars. Just say'n Toyota. The cruise control is NICE mated to this the Skyactiv 6 speed auto box with grade logic control that actually works and works GREAT. Now if the motor had enough dynamic compression to actually brake the car on a 5-7% grade. For a motor of a pint and a half I'm impressed even of the community at large is not. Over a pound foot torque per cubic inch displacement is impressive normally aspirated. The AC will tax it and no matter how fast this car WILL go this isn't a 70 mph all day long car and expect any motor life from it. Yep a minus for every plus and if I were buy again....I'd buy a one year old Buick Verano for the same money and have twice the car at 60% the fuel economy and three times the comfort. Thing is. I bought it as a "Econo run about" to limit the miles on my LaCrosse and keep it indoors during the salty season. Sacrificial lamb of sorts that would be fun to drive. Oh and it is.

Scion iA is a great car

The Scion iA far exceeds our expectations. For an extremely low purchase price, it came loaded, handles great, has great fuel economy and is loaded with safety features. We bought it for the kids to drive, we wanted them to have the safety features not available on a used car. We added the navigation for $400 so the kids don't have to hold their phone to navigate. The back seat is small but my son pointed out that there is plenty of room in the front and if his friends want a ride, they won't complain. I would have no problem if this were my primary vehicle. The only thing I would add is a center armrest. Mazda makes a great small car. The only think Toyota did to mess it up is add an ugly front end. This is not a super-powerful, super-fast super-stylish or super-big car, it is exactly what we were looking for: a small entry level car that is safe and enjoyable to drive.

Love this little car!

I've had this 2016 Scion iA for a month now and driven 1,200 miles on it. I live in a heavily populated city and commute an hour to work so buying this car was just a given. I had driven other sub compact cars and this one handled the best with the best MPG. I drive around 300-400 miles a week and fill up every other week. Average MPG has been 38 for me. It is super easy to park also. That is a big plus for me since I have to parallel park everywhere and with the backup camera that comes standard it definitely helps. Another big plus on buying this car was the 2 year free maintenance package. My previous car I was taking it into the shop every few months for not only oil changes but a wide variety of issues even though it was only 4 years old when I sold it. So saving some cash in that area is awesome! All in all it is a great little car for the price! The only two drawbacks are these: acceleration is lagging when merging onto the highway but the sport feature definitely helps when I remember to push the button & the backseat area is very very tiny - tall people and this car will not go well together (luckily my boyfriend and I are on the shorter side so it works out). I do very much recommend this car to city dwellers, commuters and first time car buyers.

Toyota for prez!

This was an awesome experience. I love my car but more over I love the Naperville Toyota dealership. Scott my salesman didn't pressure me. He explained everything and I felt like I could say no. Will be back and recommend.

I needed a new car bad, actually breaking down and dealing with car payments kind of searching. Very early on the last Saturday in August 2015, I had stopped at several dealerships. After thinking it was not working out and getting frustrated, I pulled into the Toyota's lot and took a look at what they had to offer. I tested drove this car twice, which I felt bad because those were the only miles put on the car. They allowed me to drive it until that next Monday. Anyways, it is now towards the end of June 2016 and I still love this car. Even those that I have let drive it. It handles great on the highway; love the sport mode switch. Going to the gas station, you don't have to cringe; I get just over 400 miles on a tank. This was a pocket book saver with working full time and being a full time student, work was 30 mins one direction and campus over an hour in the other. The display monitor, back up cam are among some of the nicest accessories to have and this is considered as standard feature. As for backseat comfort, as with any compact type cars, you can't have two extremely tall people sit in front of one another. Back seat comfort isn't bad at all. Plus the trunk space is huge for that car. I would recommend this to everyone I can.

2016 Scion iA - great looking riding sub compact

First off, be aware that Scion is no longer being made as of about April 2016 and that Toyota is absorbing the brand into the Toyota name so this is the last of the Scion's. Because the Scion iA is an all new design by Mazda I'm guessing sourcing parts in the future may be an issue since there is only one model year the parts would be needed for so not a lot of incentive for after market manufacturers to make parts for it. That said, the leg room for the driver was comfortable, driver foot pretty much straight rather than cocked over to the left and legs can comfortably lean against flat areas. The automatic has a manual mode and "sport" mode for quicker acceleration. It feels a bit laggy when accelerating but given it only has a 1.5cc engine it's to be expected and sport mode helps give it more zip. Great cargo space though rear seat space is very tight which is fine for me as I wasn't anticipating having passengers often. I like all the electronics it has. Features: Remote entry with push button engine start / stop, 7" screen with backup camera, optional GPS system (add $399 to price though negotiated it down to $199), bluetooth connection to phone that shows text messages on screen, voice commands, electic locks / windows / mirrors. Dash shows temperature, miles till empty, average mpg. Sounds system pretty decent with knob select and volume control on both steering wheel and between seats. Also has 2 USB connectors & accessory plug (cigarette lighter). I keep a Samsung wireless fast charger in there that is velcro'd down so phone just sits on it to charge. Pros: I like both the interior & exterior styling, gas milage (up to 42mph on highway), bluetooth / phone / 7" display / backup camera and handling. Price seemed very competitive, got mine new for $15888 which included navigation chip and title / licensing. Because no more Scion's are being made, should expect aggressive pricing to clear out inventory. Cons: One reviewer said tires custom to Toyota dealer though haven't confirmed that. The dash lights are not quite as bright for daylight driving as I'd like so have a hard time seeing information displayed (even after adjusting to full brightness) though at night time is great. Rear deck lid I've found open multiple times due to button in pocket being pressed on inadvertently for 2 seconds or more though there may be a way of adjusting that. Rear seat head rests at funky angle and not very comfortable according to my one passenger. Other: No armrests though I don't like them anyways so not a con for me. The 7" display is permanently stuck up, probably for backup purposes and can be disabled at night if you don't want a glare.

This is a relative spunky and roomy subcompact for the driver and front seat passenger. The interior is well done with richer looking detail than one would expect at this price point. The standard features are generous and it is a standout for safety earning the IIHS "Top Safety Pick Plus" designation!

I got this car September 2015, I'm in college so I go home once in a while (~300 miles away) but mainly just drive it around campus. I finally hit 5,000 miles and so far it has been such a great car. The only thing I didn't like at first was the acceleration (especially trying to enter highways), but that was easily fixed when I figured out how to use the "sport" mode! I was actually impressed with driving this car in the winter because it snows heavily where I'm from, but thankfully I had no problems & I like that it warns you when your car is slipping. Definitely agree that the space in the back is very small! My friends are like salmons back there, but it the sound system & back camera make up for it. Lastly, the gas mileage is the best thing in the world. I fill up with $15-$20 ($20 when the light turns on). It has a range about 332 miles but I can go home (~300 miles) and still have a range of ~232 miles of gas. Would definitely recommend this car!!

Over all the car is pretty great, I would however recommend getting the tire and wheel protection. I have had the car for about 3 months, it has 3800 miles, and I already have an issue with one of the tires. The tires by the way are made specifically for the car, so you can only get them from the dealership. I live in a major city and they only had ONE, yes ONE in the general area. I plan on getting a tire for my trunk, instead of the just spare that comes with the car. I travel a lot and I am now nervous about the availability of the tire in some locations. The IA is quiet on the road, and has a great sound system. I LOVE the back up camera, works well when I need to parallel park or pulling out of tight and busy parking spaces. If you want a fancy car with out the fancy cost, this is the one you need.

Juuuust got my IA. Literally have only driven it home, haha. But it's a comfortable compact, great mpg, you get a lot for your money! The only negative is that it's pretty compact! Not a lot of space for whomever is in the back! A lot of Tru k room however.

The 2016 Scion iA Sedan is a fun little car to drive. I just bought mine four days ago and have already put 400 miles on it and only had to fill up once. The gas mileage is amazing which I get 48 on the hwy and is the main reason that I bought this car along with the Scion name and Toyota backing. I really enjoy the beautifully appointed interior with a pleasing and modern look. The outside gives the car a nice sporty vibe. The handling is great – I feel that the car sits firm on the road and takes bumps without any hesitation. The “info-tainment” center is something truly special. I love the entire connectivity of the car and back-up cam which all came standard and really added to the incentive of buying a sub-compact. What could be better? The acceleration leaves something to be desired – you don’t fly the way you expect in a small car like this. It takes a moment to get moving, but the drive itself is great. I’m still getting used to the very go-kart like gas pedal. The interior can feel a little cheap with all the plastic and the A/C knobs really need upgrading from 1991. No arm rest at all, which in hindsight seems like at least they could of added a fold down rest like a movie theater seat. There is no real backseat for other than hauling a family pet or some stuff, but people would feel cramped stuck back there for any length of time. I’m a commuter so I just don’t need the extra space. I’m very happy and proud to own the Scion iA. The beauty of this car is the bang for your buck and the look of a little racer. I don’t think it has an ugly face on the front, but that is just me. I would highly recommend going and test driving one. I will update my review when I hit 10,000 miles.

My first car ever at a mature age....

I waited along time to buy my first car, new or used. I don't have anything to compare this car to so this won't be a very technical review. I was going to go for the Scion tC until I saw the previews of the 2016 iA. I watched many YouTube videos of the car being driven. I liked what I saw. I didn't care that people said the face looked like an Angry Bird. I love the way it looks. For the "Pure Price" it fit the bill for me in that I could avoid the pain of haggling with a salesman because I am so NOT a haggler. The car's size and all of the components that were all standard in this car attracted me. I have not driven 100 miles yet and I have yet to see the gas level move from full. The seats are very comfortable for me and the back seat felt as comfortable as the front. It handles well and it's great to park being smaller in size. Two things I don't like are the equality of the radio sound and the sometimes lagging acceleration but overall, I am happy with the 2016 Scion iA. I think it's a great first car, whether you are a teenager or a mature-ish person like me.
