I have been a Prius driver for the last 8 years or so. I commute many miles each day so a hybrid was almost a necessity. Well I came upon a forum that was talking about people getting great mpg on the Scion IA. I pulled the trigger today on a brand new, full factory warranty, 2016 Scion IA with 74 miles on it. $10,900 in California. Good deal? It was a little scary going with something that wasn't a hybrid. I'm hoping I get close to 40 MPG and I think I will be happy.
