Q: Toyota Corolla vs. Scion IM

asked by on June 07, 2016

Which car would it better to go with--Toyota Corolla or a Scion IM?

On that one, it’s a toss-up. Toyota makes Scions. That was an experiment they had--"let’s call these little cars Scions." They shut down Scion and now they are going to call all of them Toyotas. They are both good cars. It just depends on what you like. The engines and transmissions are pretty much the same anyways. Go buy whatever body style you like and which one you think you’d like driving better.
