Scion has released pricing information for the 2016 iA and iM.

First up, the 2016 iA is essentially a rebadged Mazda2 that starts at $15,700.  Despite its relatively low price, the model comes nicely equipped with a tilt / telescopic steering wheel, keyless entry and a push-button ignition.  Other highlights include a rearview camera, split folding rear seats and an infotainment system with a seven-inch display.

Power is provided by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 106 bhp (79 kW).  It can be connected to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.  With the latter gearbox, the model returns 33 mpg city / 42 mpg highway / 37 mpg combined.

Moving on, the iM starts at $18,460 and is essentially a US-spec Toyota Auris.  It features a leather-wrapped steering wheel, spilt folding rear seats and a rearview camera.  Other highlights include a dual-zone automatic climate control, a 4.2-inch color multi-information display and a seven-inch Pioneer Display Audio system.

A 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine resides under the hood and produces 137 bhp (102 kW).  It can be paired to either a six-speed manual or an optional continuously variable transmission.
