    New Scion iM

    Jalopnik-I called the original iM concept Matrix Part Deux. That wasn't a dig. I actually liked the Matrix, and the concept was pretty damned handsome. But as always, the journey from show stand to showroom has wiped away any sense of style and replaced it with anodyne anonymity. What a shame. Yes, it's basically just a Corolla hatchback (Auris in JDM parlance) badged as a Scion, but maybe I just hoped for something more. No luck. It's packing the miserly 1.8-liter, putting out 137 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels. That anemic grunt is sent to a seven-speed "automatic" that's actually a CVT with preset ratios. But there is a six-speed manual option, probably to get it below the $20,000 starting price Scion is promising.

    A bit, but that 1.8 is long past its expiration date.

    The matrix was a fine rig for the right fit of a person. Not sure about this, but way better than the catfish sedan.
