Thank you

For 2016, Toyota joint venture with Mazda to produce the 2016 Scion iA which is a Mazda2 sedan.

Visually, the Scion iA distinguishes itself from the Mazda 2 with a different front bumper and grille design.


There is no towing capacity listed because that is Not Recommended or Advisable:

True. I rather go with the Recommendation of the Car's manufacturer than that of U-Haul or a hitch/tow setup place which have a vested interest
in renting/selling a product and telling you "No Problem", "You are Good to Go". Safety should be Paramount, not $$.

I didn't say you can't tow with it. I said it was Not Recommended and the Manufacturer did not List a Towing capacity. Ask your Dealer. They recommend against it.

There is a Reason for that. The Safe Alternative is renting a U-Haul truck and towing the xA and hauling your belongings.

This is a Free Country. People drive w/o seat belts on. You can jump out of a airplane w/o a parachute, but that is Not Recommended.
Step right up! Take your chances!
Good Luck! smh
