While we wait for official Scion iA numbers to release, it's time to discuss how pricing could be structured. To get a better sense of this I have included pricing of its competition.

Discuss

2016 Scion iA Competition:
  • 2015 Toyota Yaris: $14,845
  • 2015 Mazda 2: $14,720
  • 2015 Ford Fiesta: $13,965
  • 2015 Nissan Versa Sedan: $11,990
  • 2015 Nissan Versa Note: $14,180
  • 2015 Hyundai Accent: $14,745
  • 2015 Kia Rio: $13,990
  • 2016 Scion iA: $_ _, _ _ _ ?

Update:

The new sans-hatch Scion will arrive in dealerships this fall for an estimated MSRP in the $16,000-range. That’s for a mono-spec model equipped with standard Low-speed Pre-collision safety system and 7-inch multi-media system with voice activation. Because Scion has a no hassle, no haggle Pure Price, customers walk out the door with the same price they saw posted in the dealership.

It's quite a bit more expensive than many competitors. Will it come with more standard features or is it just more expensive because of the premium they have to send to Mazda?

That was just an estimated MSRP, we have yet to sell what it will actually be priced at.

I know its an estimate, but whoever did the estimate must have known what the rest of the segment was priced at. So why did he think the iA would be able to command almost $2k more than its rivals?

Probably because scion products are mono spec with little to choose from unlike others in this segment, when equally spec'd the competition should be around the same price

all prices listed here are starting prices.

So there won't be options? It will just come with what it comes with. Fingers crossed that it will be equipped with a sufficient amount of features.

What are you guys expecting or hoping for as far as features go?

Read up about how Scions are configured and look at the configurator for current Scion models and you'll know what to expect.

Transmission options of a manual or automatic should be one of the few things to choose from, which is great during a time where manuals are being phased out.

Yea, that'll actually be a draw to the iA for some people. Often times you have to get a really expensive "driver's car" to have the option for a manual. Having that option on a more affordable vehicle is an easy way to attract some more sales.

No you don't. For a while it's always been either cheap cars or cars that have a long standing history of a manual option. Then the expensive cars far out of the reach of everyone here.

Anyone know when we can expect prices? I thought Scion would release them at the same time as they did for the iM...

Best guess on prices:

Manual: $16,995 after Delivery, Processing, and Handling fees
Automatic: $17,995 after Delivery, Processing, and Handling fees

Somewhere around there.

Sounds just about right, sticking within high teens is what's going to position them well in the states, and then right around the $20k mark for canadians
