scion confirms sedan for 2015

Scion has confirmed that their new iM hatchback will be joined by a sedan, debuting at April’s New York Auto Show.

As previously reported, the upcoming sedan will likely be based on the all-new Mazda2, which has a sedan variant that will not be sold in North America. Unlike Scion’s current lineup of Japanese built cars, the 2-based sedan will be built in Mexico, which should make for a more profitable vehicle if nothing else. Of course, “profitable small vehicle” is an industry oxymoron.

    the im hatch will take the place of the matrix, and plug that hole, since there is no 5 door corolla. the 2 based sedan will fill in for the no longer around yaris sedan. makes sense to me, and with monospec and pure pricing? they will sell.

      Why attach a cache, when cachet is what is needed?

    It only took a decade for Scion to sell a sporty small car... **FRS notwithstanding

    While we were waiting for Mazdas Skyactive cars to come out, I kept hearing how the cars would have a longer space between the windshield and the front wheel well (firewall?) which would make the hood longer. Personally, I don't see it. I see the extra overhang making the hood longer. I think all the best looking cars have a big firewall area. I wish the new Mazdas had it too. My rusty Protege has a longer firewall area than the new 3.
