Toyota's Scion division made waves early on with the boxy xB and sporty tC coupe appealing to a younger demographic with style, numerous factory customization options and affordability. A sedan, hatchback and front- and rear-wheel drive coupe make up the current Scion stable.
A new platform and powertrains should make the hatchback a much more entertaining and refined car than the sedan... but will people buy it?
For those wanting a special trim and other additions over the standard 86, Toyota plans to produce fewer than 2,000 of these special models.
It's going to be a long time before this problem goes away.
Frankly, I'm surprised this manga-infused mashup didn't happen sooner.
All in, Toyota's three brands have recalled nearly 5 million vehicles for this reason.
The two newest Scions will continue to prosper after the brand is consigned to history, albeit with Yaris and Corolla badges.
The brand will have its last hurrah at the New York Auto Show, complete with old concepts, projects and -- of course -- free swag.
The 2016 iA sedan is one of the best cars to ever wear the Scion badge, which is interesting because it's actually a Mazda.
