When Toyota killed Scion…it took a couple of years to replace it….this is the model. It looks like a Subaru Crosstrek….same size. But there is NO AWD availability. This will definitely hold down sales. Most people want AWD or 4-wheel drive now. Especially in their Crossover or SUV. It’s really not an option any more.
This model offers many great features as standard. Apple car ply, turn signal mirrors,dual zone climate control, 18 inch alloy wheels. 7-inch touch-screen, adaptive cruise control, hill hold, accident avoidance, rear cross traffic and slind-spot monitoring. Quite impressive for an entry level car.
Looks are contemporary, material use is very good. But gas mileage is not really competitive with other models in it’s class…such as the Subaru Crosstrek. Which beats it by Two mpg and is AWD.??? The power output of the car is anemic too. No get up and go. The view out the back is very confining. Good thing it has a back up camera. Even in Sport mode…it was still disappointing…
It needs a little sorting out, which I’m sure Toyota will figure out…improvements will make this choice much more appealing…..
