    It is interesting! The Toyota logo is a triple oval. Two internal ovals located perpendicularly symbolize a strong relationship between the client and the company. In addition, if you look closely, in these ovals you can see the image of all six letters of the brand name T, O, Y, O, T, A.

    Into just its second model-year having debuted at the end of , here we have a car already undergoing a name change. Nonetheless, the Scion brand, relegated to the history books in , did at least leave us with a fun-to-drive coupe, the Scion FR-S now the Toyota 86 and a practical compact, the Toyota Corolla iM the follow-up to the Scion iM.

    The Corolla iM shares the mandate of its predecessor of seducing fans of the old Matrix, which disappeared in Though it carries the Corolla name, the iM variant is in reality a Toyota Auris carefully adapted for our market. The Corolla and its iM sibling do have a number of points in common, but their origins are quite different. The Corolla sedan is assembled in several plants around the globe, including Canada, while the iM is built in Japan and the United Kingdom only.

    The platforms are also somewhat distinct from one another. In the end, of course, all of that matters less to consumers than having a wider choice of small hatchbacks available to them. The trunk of the Matrix? Is the Toyota Corolla iM a worthy successor to the defunct Matrix, a vehicle appreciated for its utility aspect? One of the advantages of the old Matrix was the fold-down rear bench, the back of which was covered in a durable plastic material.

Another quibble I had involved the placement of the adjustment knob for the heated seats and of the USB and AUX inputs; these are all found behind the gear lever, and so difficult to access.

    On a brighter note, driving position is adequate and the steering column is adjustable. As for the lateral field of vision, it is slightly hampered toward the rear by those pointed windows that are so in vogue these days. Any sportiness in the Corolla iM? But the question then is, is its outer shell a deceit? This is a shame, because the chassis and the suspension adjustments do suggest the possibility of placing more explosive mechanics under the roof. But with a middling maximum power output of hp and a transmission that obstinately seeks to reduce fuel consumption, Toyota entry in this category is far from a power-monger!

    In addition to which, the very light steering is not the most precise in its segment. So why buy it? On the contrary, this Japanese compact car, whether it carries the iM badge or not, can boast of offering one of the best resale values in the industry, thanks especially its proven durability and reliability. That it lacks punch when you press on the accelerator is unlikely to hamper its success in Canada or elsewhere.

    But despite its advancing age, this engine offers perfectly reasonable fuel consumption figures. Even when putting the mechanics through some pretty rough paces, the average came in around 8. It might not blow you away right off the bat, but in the long run you may well find it to be the best choice for you.
