    1381411740

    As we said in the title, the news here isn't a new, two-tone paint job for the Scion xD – it's that Scion is still building the oddly proportioned hatchback. For 2014, the xD will be available in two different color combinations, which will be split at the car's beltline. The first combo, Magnetic Gray Metallic and Black Sand Pearl, puts the ...

    Official: Scion celebrates first 10 years with special edition models
    1364822940

    As the story goes, Toyota's Scion brand was imagined up in someone's basement and then came to fruition in 2003 as a youth-oriented brand with a focus on delivering unique vehicles with an equally unique retail experience. A decade later, the brand has grown to five models, which will each be commemorated starting in June with a new Scion 10 Series ...

    1362170640

    Rumors of an entry-level, BMW 3 Series-fighting Jaguar sedan have been floating around for quite some time, but thanks to our intrepid spy photographers, we now have visible proof that such a model is, in fact, in the works. Despite this tester's XF fittings, it's clear that what lies beneath is an entirely different beast. The doors have been shortened, ...

    Official: Scion xB death sentence uncertain, minor updates announced
    1355146380

    The last time we discussed the Scion xB and xD, in April of this year, it was to announce a report that both models were being killed. The vice president of the brand had said, "We don't have plans for a direct xB or xD replacement," but no date was given for the termination. Turns out rumors of their deaths have been greatly exaggerated: as part of a ...

    Report: Scion xB, xD models getting the axe
    1335209220

    Scion has long been labeled as a "youth brand," so perhaps we shouldn't be surprised to read word of parent Toyota turning over the marque's aging nameplates so quickly. According to Ward's Auto, Scion is set to kill off its xB and xD models – the first a onetime icon for the brand, the latter an econobox that never truly caught on with buyers (not ...

    Despite the fact that Scion is a uniquely American invention for Toyota, only one of its current models – the rapidly aging tC coupe – was actually designed here in the States. Perhaps it shouldn't come as too big a surprise, then, that U.S. Scion sales are down by 49-percent compared to 2008 levels. According to Automotive News, Yoshi ...

    Screw convention! Why do you have to build a rally car out of something sporty? Or powerful? Or off-road-worthy? According to 0-60 magazine at least, you don't have to. You can build a rally car out of just about anything. Take this Scion xD for instance. It's probably among the last cars you'd picture taking off-road, but seeing what it looks like after ...

    Toyota launches most efficient "SUV" in Europe, the Urban Cruiser

    When Toyota first showed the Urban Cruiser at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show it was immediately familiar to American observers. It was after all the same car sold here as the Scion xD but given the "Outback" treatment. In other words, the ride height was raised and drive to the rear axle was added. In spite of having all wheel drive, calling this car an SUV, ...

    This is Scion's fifth year as a SEMA attendee, and it's arguably their best. Being the younger, hipper, tunier Toyota it makes sense they show up here with six concepts to spark customers' imaginations. To that end, they've brought several fun and outrageous customs from designers such as Mark Arcenal, Eddie Hahm (above), Drag Cartel, John Pangilinan, ...
