The 2017 Toyota Yaris iA is a nimble, fun to drive, fuel-efficient small sedan that really does have it all. It also comes with an interesting history. The Yaris iA was originally a Scion model, sold by Toyota’s network of Scion dealers. When Toyota closed down its Scion operations, it added the iA to its Toyota lineup as a Yaris model. This made sense from a marketing standpoint, since the Yaris is Toyota’s subcompact hatchback, which comes as a three-door and a five-door.
But the 2017 Yaris iA is not really a Yaris by birth. This very interesting vehicle is a result of Toyota’s relationship with Mazda, which created the entire vehicle. Originally developed as the Mazda2, the sedan version (which Mazda never intended to sell in the US) was a natural for the Scion lineup of small cars. Now it slots perfectly into the Yaris lineup as its only sedan. Aside from its redesigned front end, the Yaris iA is pure Mazda, and that is a very good thing!
