2016 Scion iM vs 2016 Ford Focus
The hot hatchback segment has always been popular over in Europe. However, in recent years the segment has seen a resurgence here in America. Scion wanted to capitalize on this popularity by releasing an all-new model, the Scion iM hatchback. The iM is the newest model in the Scion lineup, and it has been released to rave reviews. It is already one of the best-selling Scion vehicles at our dealership, and we can certainly understand why. The new 2016 Scion iM will appeal to anyone looking for a fun-to-drive, well-equipped five-door hatchback that offers excellent value and great fuel economy.
The 2016 Scion iM competes in the compact car segment where there is no shortage of competition. One of the most iconic vehicles in that segment is Ford’s Focus model. The Focus has been on the market since the late 1990s, and actually held the title of best-selling car the world at one time. However, we feel that the all-new 2016 Scion iM is truly superior to the Focus. Therefore, we have decided to match up the new 2016 Scion iM vs 2016 Ford Focus.
2016 Scion iM: Sporty Compact
One of the ways that the new 2016 Scion iM is superior to competitors such as the 2016 Ford Focus is with its sporty styling. The Scion iM is the newest vehicle in the segment, and brings a youthful new style to the category. The Scion iM embraces a aggressive styling that is still somehow graceful. As a result, this model will be equally at home on the racetrack and the red carpet. We aren’t saying that the 2016 Ford Focus is a bad looking vehicle. However, we are saying that it does not even come close to match the new youth-oriented styling of the 2016 Scion iM hatchback.
One of the other ways that the new 2016 Scion iM is superior to the 2016 Ford Focus is with its long list of standard features. Scion is a brand that prides itself on offering vehicles with standard features that are actually standard, and the new 2016 iM model is no exception. Drivers who get behind the wheel of the new 2016 Scion iM will get to enjoy unique features such as: Rear double-wishbone suspension, touchscreen audio display, 17-inch alloy wheels and unparalleled safety features. The 2016 Ford Focus does not offer nearly as many standard features as the iM does. Therefore, we truly believe that the new 2016 Scion iM is the superior vehicle in the new model year.
