Scion Reviews


Scion was launched by Toyota in 2002 in an attempt to appeal to younger buyers through cool styling, value pricing and a long list of accessories that allow endless opportunities for personalization. First introduced in California in 2003, the brand has since spread across the United States and Canada, while rebranded Scions are available in Europe and Japan with a Toyota nameplate.

Featuring sporty exterior styling and a lengthy list of standard features, including cruise control and a digital multi-information display, the Scion xD is truly a budget car with character. Added to the hatchback's already ample amenities are a host of in-car entertainment options, making the xD the epitome of subcompact cool.
