2016 Volkswagen Golf vs 2016 Scion iM

The hatchback segment has seen a significant increase in popularity in recent years, with drivers appreciating its sedan-like handling and performance and its more spacious interior. With the growing demand, more automakers have begun cranking out hatchback models of their own like the new Scion iM. However, other automakers have been making these versatile hatchbacks for decades, e.g. the Volkswagen Golf. Volkswagen’s modern update for the classic Rabbit model, today’s 2016 Volkswagen Golf offers the quick performance and affordable fuel economy that the classic model was known for.

While there’s definite appeal to an all-new model, we think you’ll find that Volkswagen knows what they’re doing with the hatchback better than any other automaker.

To show you that experience is definitely a factor in the auto industry, take a look at our 2016 Volkswagen Golf vs 2016 Scion iM comparison.

2016 VW Golf offer superior performance

As you can see in the chart above, despite both models featuring a 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder engine, they offer very different driving experience. The two offer similar fuel economy, both achieving 37 mpg on the highway. While the iM may offer slightly better fuel economy in the city, the Golf more than makes up for it in its superior performance. Behind the wheel of the Golf, drivers have access to much more power for a quick, adaptive performance, making the Volkswagen Golf the right choice for those looking for a more exhilarating drive.

Offering superior horsepower and torque, the Volkswagen Golf is able to race to the front of the pack, and stay in the lead, which goes to show that newcomers to the race like Scion just can’t compete with the tried and true automakers like VW.
