Scion announced today that its final limited-production vehicle for 2009, the xD Release Series 2.0 (xD RS 2.0), will be available at dealer showrooms later this month.
The 2009 xD Release Series 2.0 comes in Electric Wasabi green exterior paint with unique interior modifications. The xD features a touch-screen Pioneer Audio Visual Navigation (AVN) head unit with flash memory, voice recognition, and Bluetooth. For media player flexibility, the AVN unit comes with USB, SD card, and iPod connectivity. The Pioneer AVN head unit is also satellite radio, rear-view camera, and HD Radio ready, and will play iPod videos when the parking brake is engaged. In addition, people can select from more than 32,000 colors to customize the 5.8-inch high-resolution WVGA LCD touch-panel display. You can plan the perfect roadtrip at home by downloading the freeware application AVIC Feeds to a computer, making a personalized destination directory and then transferring the data to the headunit using SD card or USB memory device.
Release Series wheel covers also distinguish this limited production xD. A color-keyed rear spoiler will be available as an option.
Scion will only build 1,600 units of the xD RS 2.0. The xD RS 2.0 model will sell for $1,270 over the base price of the xD. The base MSRP for the standard xD with a manual transmission is $14,650, and the standard xD with an automatic transmission model carries a MSRP of $15,450. The available Electric Wasabi spoiler will be $285, not including installation.
