Even though we had a chance to see concept version of the 2016 Scion iM model, the production edition is far less glamorous.

Beside the iM, the Scion also presented its 2016 iA sedan, which will be reviewed in separate review.

Besides Lexus, which is now known as one of the class-leading automakers, Scion is yet another Toyota’s division. Unlike Lexus, which is primarily oriented towards luxury, the Scion is actually mainly focused on younger population. One of the best vehicles from Scion is the upcoming 2016 Scion xB, which will start its third generation with new model year.

Originally Scion presented its sport compact coupe back in 2004. Current version of Scion’s tC is in its second generation, which started back in 2011. However, the model didn’t achieve expected sales results, which forced Toyota to start the third generation even earlier than planned. 2016 Scion tC will come fully redesigned, and will mark the start of the third generation. With young buyers as target customers, Toyota will make some significant revisions on the upcoming Scion tC, but the makeover can’t affect the price significantly.
