Ottawa Auto Show: 2016 Toyota iM

Published on March 19 2016

Launched last fall under the Scion brand, the compact iM had too many great qualities to be discontinued by the manufacturer. So she is reborn in the same form, but now displaying the Toyota logo, as evidenced by its presence at the Ottawa Auto Show.


2016 Toyota iM: the next chapter

Physically, the small iM is compact, but it is also a hatchback which means it can certainly fulfill the needs of active families. Thanks to a long wheelbase and a high roofline, the 2016 Toyota iM is perfect for young families who need to carry a lot of stuff while also requiring decent rear head and legroom.

Under the hood you will find a 4-cylinder, 1.8-liter engine that is also found in the 2016 Toyota Corolla LE ECO, combined with a continuously variable automatic gearbox (CVT) or a manual transmission in the base version. The CVT is smooth and pleasant, and despite being a CVT is probably the way to go if you want to get the most out of the engine, both from a performance standpoint as well as in regards to fuel-efficiency.

Back to the engine, it offers 137 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque, which is plenty for both highway and city driving.

The new 2016 Toyota iM also offers a remarkably smooth ride, thanks in part to a refined suspension system. As a whole, the iM is quite refined and features a beautiful interior built with high-quality materials. We mentioned that it was spacious earlier, and proof can be found in the 588 liters of cargo space offered behind the rear seats. 

Note also that the Toyota iM offers a long list of standard equipment, including dual-zone climate control, a rear-view camera, electronically folding mirrors, a six-speaker Pioneer sound system and a 7-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system.
