Surprise, Surprise, The Scion IM Looks Just Like An Auris

When the Scion iM makes its way over to our shores in 2015, it will ditch the aggro-blue paint job and the import tuner bodykit. How do we know this? Logic dictates that a mainstream car would look, well, mainstream. Oh, and spy photos.
Our friends at AutoGuide got their hands on spy photos of the Scion iM, which shows the car looking identical to an Auris. Personally, I don’t think it’s such a bad thing, but I’m past my tuner years. Fans of the Toyota Matrix will probably concur.

This looks enormous.
This should just be sold as a Corolla hatchback, just as Mazda sells the hatchback 3 as a 3. At least then it will have some name recognition and Toyota won't have to pretend that this car is any more sporty, any more youthful, any more cool-hip-trendy-whatever than a simple Corolla. That there is a sensible conservative wagon, not surprise cult hit like the first xB. Not seeing how placing Scion badges on it will make it move off lots faster. Not seeing how a rebadged corolla will save Scion.
I guess they're finally going to axe the xB since it would make absolutely no sense to keep on both the xB and this thing which looks to be a largish hatchback. It's kinda sad, I was always kind of hoping they'd update the xB into something truly great again. Update the styling and put in a new powertrain and it'd still be a very competitive vehicle.
Can you please stop posting picture of Auris Wagon when talking about Auris Hatchback? You are respected car site, you should know the huge difference between the two. AG shows Auris Hatchback, so show that!
