Which iA is the Best?

Since there's only one trim level, that's the one we'd go with. It's surprisingly well equipped for a subcompact car, offering few options aside from exterior paint and interior color. Find a Scion iA for sale

 

How Much Does a 2016 Scion iA Cost?

The 2016 Scion iA is only offered in one trim level, which starts at $16,500 with shipping.

A navigation system is among the iA's only options.

Safety

Is the 2016 Scion iA a Safe Car?

Although the iA has not yet been rated by the federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the sedan earned a coveted Top Safety Pick+ designation from the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

While the iA lacks a few of today's most cutting-edge gadgets and features, it touts side-curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes, a backup camera and forward-collision warning with automatic braking among its standard features. That's more than you can say about any other subcompact car on the market today.

Competition

2016 Scion iA vs the competition

2016 Chevrolet Sonic -- Available as a hatchback or a sedan, the tiny Chevy Sonic touts excellent fuel economy and a peppy driving experience. The iA has a nicer interior, though.

2016 Ford Fiesta -- The tiny Fiesta is offered in hatchback or sedan guise. Available with a fuel-saving 3-cylinder engine and a lot of tech, the Fiesta is a good alternative to the iA.

2016 Hyundai Accent -- The tiny Hyundai Accent offers Hyundai's excellent warranty and highly reasonable pricing, but it isn't as modern as the iA.

Used Mazda3 -- If you like the iA's styling and upscale interior but want more space, consider the larger Mazda3. You'll find many familiar switches and buttons in the larger Mazda and you'll get more features, but a higher base price means you may have to consider a used model instead of a new one.
