    New Scion IA

    Jalopnik-What is it about four-door sedans? How are these still, somehow, more desirable in America than a smart, practical, 5-door hatch? Well, they are, there’s nothing we can do about it, and since Scion seems to want to sell cars, they need one. So here it is: the Scion iA.

    The iA will be the first four-door sedan sold under the Scion nameplate, but since Scion is really just Toyota and doesn’t even really exist outside of North America, that’s much less of a big deal than you’d think. Just to make things nice and confusing, though, this iA is actually more Mazda than Toyota, based on Mazda’s SkyActiv platform and sharing a lot of its guts with the new Mazda 2.

    Toyota is just sad, so much money and they can't even make a small car on their own. At least they chose Mazda, they could have done way worse than that.

    Probably because Toyota is too proud to admit they failed at the young brand thing.

    I really hope nobody even responds to this thread after this. I hope it's just totally ignored, just like this will be.
