It is obviously seen that Scions body design is similar to Mazda 2, but one thing that clearly make it big different is its nose. It is on the bumper designed like big mouth, but those who put the aesthetic so much may not think it is good to be attached. On the other hand, this small sedan is designed with lines on the bottom body which emphasizes the angle. In addition, both of the head and rear lamps are equipped with LED lighting.
Something that might be highlighted here is the performance in which it can deliver to be. It comes in front engine and front wheel drive which can accommodate 4 to 5 passengers. It is equipped in 1.5 litre Skyactiv 4 cylinder which is able to deliver up to 156 horsepower in six speed manual.
The dashboard looks very standard as you can see on Yaris and Mazda seems to be even better than this and the steering wheel has mono type style. Meanwhile, for the cab, it is greatly designed and you can come with this in a good look than you see right now. It is quite spacious for small sedan just to make the passengers feel so comfort.
