Toyota Adds Four Scion Models to the Lineup
When it comes to the automotive industry, the Toyota brand is a juggernaut and a go-to option in the Vermont and New Hampshire area. With 20 new models for you to choose from, the Toyota model lineup is diverse and has something for everyone. That brand diversity is about to become even more impressive with news that Toyota will add four Scion models to the lineup that will appeal to countless more drivers. Look for rebranded Scion models to be added to the White River Toyota inventory in August of 2016.
Which Scion Models Will Join the Toyota Model Lineup?
Designed to have a greater appeal to younger drivers, the Scion brand has been successful with 50% of buyers under the age of 35. Car shoppers, however, have started to put more focus on quality and reliability — and that is where the Toyota nameplate comes in. Lending the power of the parent company to new-age Scion editions will fill holes in the Toyota lineup, offering a more diverse selection. Four Scion editions are making the transition to Toyota and we have detailed them each below.
Scion FR-S – A sleek sports coupe, the Scion FR-S has no current counterpart in the Toyota stable and caters to drivers looking for a fun-to-drive 2-door coupe. With a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine under the hood that makes 200 horsepower with rear-wheel drive, the Scion FR-S will provide plenty of thrills.
Scion iA – Drivers looking for a sporty sedan that is comparable to the 2016 Toyota Corolla will love the addition of the Scion iA. Athletic lines are mirrored by a zesty 106-horsepower 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that will make an incredible 42 mpg on the highway. Pair those elements with a loaded interior and the Scion iA is the total package.
Scion iM – This sporty little hatchback combines an energetic driving demeanor with an affordable price tag under $20,000. A 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine makes 137 horsepower and will achieve a frugal 37 mpg on the highway that will save you money at the pump. Couple that with an impressive 20.8 cubic-feet of cargo space and this 5-door hatchback will give the 2016 Toyota Yaris a run for its money.
Scion C-HR Concept – If you love the 2016 Toyota RAV4, you will love the Scion C-HR Concept. Originally developed by Toyota and Scion to be a hybrid, this new-age crossover blends the versatility of a crossover with the look and feel of a sports coupe. A chiseled profile and sharp lines highlight this crossover that is due to arrive in August of 2016.
News that Toyota adds four Scion models to the lineup represents an evolution of the Toyota brand that will provide even more options for car shoppers. With new additions that appeal to younger drivers, including a sports coupe, the Toyota model lineup will have something for everyone.
