Based on the same stellar platform as the Mazda2, the front-wheel-drive iA rides on 16-inch alloy wheels and includes front struts, a stabilizer bar and a rear torsion beam suspension. Power comes from a 16-valve, 106-horsepower 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, which can be paired with either a standard 6-speed manual or optional automatic transmission. In the automatic, fuel economy is rated at 33 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway, while the manual-equipped iA returns slightly less, at 31 and 41, respectively. The iA is available in one trim level. Standard features include power mirrors with integrated turn signals, a chrome-tipped exhaust and halogen headlights. Inside drivers will find push-button start, a backup camera, air conditioning, power windows and locks, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with audio and cruise controls and a 60/40 split-fold rear seat. A 7-inch touchscreen display controls the Toyota Access Connect multi-media system (though a large central knob does the job, too), while USB ports, Bluetooth hands-free phone and music streaming, along with voice recognition and SMS text functionality, provide cutting-edge connectivity. Other than the $1,100 automatic transmission, the only other option in the iA is an integrated navigation system, to be installed at a dealer. The iA is also loaded with safety features such as dynamic stability control, traction control and anti-lock brakes, plus a low-speed collision system, brake override and a host of front, rear and side airbags.
