Default Scion reveals iM concept ahead of LA debut

Filed under: Concept Cars, LA Auto Show, Performance, Hatchback, Scion

After dropping a teaser image on us a few weeks ago, Scion has revealed in full the new iM Concept it's bringing to the Los Angeles Auto Show next week. As expected, the concept is clearly a rebadged version of the Euro-market Toyota Auris, only with some "European Racing Circuit Styling" upgrades to make it look more aggressive.

Along with the Scion logos, the five-door hatch is treated to a deeper air dam flanked by angular vents with stacked fog lamps, beefed-up wheel arches linked by widened side sills and filled with 19-inch, anthracite-finish alloys on low-profile rubber. Vented brake discs and four-piston calipers join an adjustable suspension as show-worthy equipment upgrades.

The sporty treatment continues around back with a similarly aggressive rear bumper and roof spoiler. Even the wing mirrors are replaced with narrower units. Little wonder it's all done up in a shade Scion calls "incrediblue" that looks rather similar to what sister-brand Lexus would put on one of its F-branded performance models - or for that matter what corporate ally Subaru would put on an STI hot hatches like the WRX.

That's about all we have at the moment, but we'll be on hand in LA to see the Scion iM Concept debut in a week's time, so watch this space. In the meantime you can scope out the pair of high-resolution images in the gallery and the press release below for the full skinny direct from the Scion's mouth.Continue reading Scion reveals iM concept ahead of LA debut
