The 2016 Scion iA is the latest addition to the lineup for the entry-level Japanese brand. In some ways, the iA doesn't seem too different from the brand's previous offerings. It's small. It comes in bright colors that accentuate its playful styling. It's got a modest engine and a two-letter moniker. And, like other recent Scion models, parent company Toyota-sourced the iA from a competing auto manufacturer.
Though the new Scion iA follows an established pattern, that's not to say that this model is more of the same. In fact, there are some key differences that help distinguish the iA from the rest of the Scion lineup, and it's harder to spot the differences than it is to see the similarities. Let's take a look at some interesting features of the 2016 Scion iA, to see what makes the brand's latest affordable compact stand out from the pack.
