Scion Has Joined the Toyota Family


Scion was established and created by a group of forward-thinking people who wanted to design unique vehicles for a new generation. Scion was designed to stand out from the crown and offered vehicles that appealed to a younger audience, reflecting their own passions.

It was announced earlier this year that the Scion brand would eventually be folded into the Toyota family. Toyota would like to introduce the 2017 Yaris iA (formerly the Scion iA), the 2017 Corolla iM (formerly the Scion iM) and the Toyota 86 (formerly the Scion FR-S).

2017 Toyota Yaris iA

The 2017 Toyota Yaris iA comes standard with unique 16-in. split 5-spoke alloy wheels. The 2017 Yaris iA features LED turn signal indicators on the outside mirrors, as well as Standard Daytime Running Lights providing more safety and style. Inside, the Yaris iA comes standard with remote keyless entry with Push Button Start and sport-contoured seats for the driver and front passenger. Available options include Sport Mode, which adjusts the engine control unit and shift points to give a sportier feel to your drive and when equipped with an automatic transmission, the 2017 Yaris iA features a unique manual shift mode. The Toyota Yaris iA also features a 7-in. touch-screen display audio system that you control by directly touching the screen and Bluetooth® wireless technology. The 2017 Yaris iA keeps safety in mind with its standard advanced Active Safety System that includes Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Traction Control System (TCS), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Brake Over-ride System (BOS).

2017 Toyota Corolla iM

The 2017 Toyota Corolla iM features a sporty look. It comes standard with an aggressive aero kit, bringing extra attitude to the front fascia, side skirts and rear bumper and a black honeycomb grille. It also features Standard LED Daytime Running Lights that are bright and efficient, as well as power-folding and heated outside mirrors that help remove condensation. On the inside, the 2017 Toyota Corolla iM features upscale, piano-black accents that surround a 7-in. touch-screen that brings tech and beauty to this stylish space. The available Display Audio with Navigation features standard AM/FM radio, Aha Radio™ app with over 100,000 stations, iPod® connectivity and six speakers give you the tunes to make every drive more memorable.  The Toyota Corolla iM also features standard dual zone climate control system and comes standard with a sport gauge cluster and nestled between the gauges is a 4.2-in. color Multi-Information Display that shares your average mpg, current song selection and more—all at a glance. Every new Corolla iM comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ C (TSS-C) —an active safety package that combines a Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) and Automatic High Beams (AHB) to assist you.

2017 Toyota 86

The 2017 Toyota 86 comes with a close-ratio 6-speed transmission for incredible acceleration and impressive fuel economy. The automatic transmission features a manual shift mode, letting you choose the gear you want via the gear-select lever or steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Just a simple pull of the lever allows the ability to quickly change gears while keeping both hands on the wheel. The 86 features a classic sports car profile with a long hood and a short rear deck. The restyled rear diffuser improves airflow and reduces turbulent air exiting from under the car, adding function to its street-ready attitude. On the inside, the 2017 86 features an ergonomic, leather-wrapped steering wheel with new integrated audio controls, giving you easier access to your music and helping you can stay in control of it all. The 2017 Toyota 86 includes Smart Stop Technology that helps reduce engine power when both the brake and gas pedals are pressed at the same time under certain conditions. In addition, every 86 comes standard with Hill Start Assist Control, which helps to keep the vehicle from rolling backward when switching from brake to accelerator on an incline.
