The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Scion iM looks the part of the youth-oriented sporty hatchback, but doesn't drive the part. The 2016 Mazda 3 is one of the best-driving and best-looking small cars, with a more premium feel than its (now even lower) price might suggest.
