New Scion models feature Toyo OE tires

Toyo Tire North America OE Sales is supplying two new Scion models with Toyo tires.

The vehicle models are:

1. 2016 Scion iA, Scion’s first sedan. It will be equipped with 16-inch Toyo Proxes A27 tires.

2. 2016 Scion iM 5-door hatchback. It will be equipped with 17-inch Toyo Proxes 4 Plus B all-season, ultra-high performance tires.

The Proxes A27 is designed to provide low rolling resistance; good handing in both wet and dry conditions; and a quieter ride. The Scion iA features a high-strength body structure; quick-revving; a high-compression, 1.5-liter engine with 106 horsepower; a 6-speed transmission; and standard 16-inch alloy wheels.

The Proxes 4 Plus B is designed to provide excellent wear and swift handling. The Scion iM’s 137 horsepower, 4-cylinder engine uses Valvematic technology to offer a broad torque curve. Its "hunkered-down" chassis is equipped with a double-wishbone rear suspension and comes standard with attractive 17-inch alloy wheels, according to Toyo.
