One thing I love about my job is getting to try new products and experiences I (probably) wouldn’t get to do otherwise. Growing up my dad had a hot rod shop and my love for cars started early. I used to spend heaps of time in the garage playing, sanding, hammering, and listening to golden oldies. So, when I get to drive a brand new car ‘for work’ it’s pretty freaking awesome. Here’s my experience with the brand new Scion iM.
chilling at Western University in London, ON
I picked up the Scion at Toronto HQ in Scarborough on a nice sunny day in November. I had a great week of planned for us including a trip to London, Ontario to speak at TEDx Western University.
The car had five doors which were great for packing in all my things for a weekend away. I could have taken a couple passengers with ease. Mileage was great, filled up once during the week for about $45 and again before I returned it (as you do).
why do hands look weird in photos? mine are small I swear! Moto 360 watch 😎
I took the car on a couple road trip including a visit to mum’s house in Cambridge, ON with my sister. This is us singing LOUDLY to ‘Hello’ by Adele. The sound system was pretty good and I was able to connect my iPhone to the NAV system in a couple seconds. One of the first things I test in a new car.
The body kit gives this little racer a sporty feel and 17″ wheels (standard) look pretty pimp. Since it’s a hatchback, the Scion iM makes a great city car; easy parking and zipping around downtown.
On my way home from visiting the parents after my TEDx talk I drove through a beautiful (double rainbow (you can’t see the second part in this photo but I saw it.
Overall, good little vehicle, chill on gas, nice to drive, good sound, USB charging, and spacious. If you’re keen for a test drive click here or for more info visit scion.ca.
Thanks Toyota & Scion Canada for a fun adventure!
