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 spread across the United States and Canada, while rebranded Scions became available in Europe and Japan with a Toyota nameplate. However, due to years of dropping sales, Toyota is discontinuing the youth-centric Scion brand after its attempt to excite buyers fell short with the 2016 iA and iM models.
