With spec-defying performance and surprisingly sophisticated driver-aid tech, the 2016 iA is both one of the best cars to wear the Scion badge and one of the best in its class.
Toyota's Scion division made waves early on with the boxy xB and sporty tC coupe appealing to a younger demographic with style, numerous factory customization options and affordability. A sedan, hatchback and front- and rear-wheel drive coupe make up the current Scion stable.
The 2016 Scion iM is an attractive, value-priced compact car with good space, but ultimately middling efficiency and underwhelming driving dynamics.
The 2014 Scion tC delivers a strong power-train and a well-sorted suspension on a budget, leaving it to the driver to add most of the tech via the aftermarket.
Because of its size, the 2014 Scion iQ makes for an exceptional city car, and its cabin electronics will satisfy most, but put it at the bottom of the list as a long-distance road trip car.
The 2013 Scion FR-S is a fun sports car, excellent in the turns but lacking big thrust, while the cabin tech upgrade looks intriguing for iPhone users.
The brand will have its last hurrah at the New York Auto Show, complete with old concepts, projects and -- of course -- free swag.
Now that Toyota decided to kill off Scion and absorb its vehicles under the Toyota name, it's time to take a look back at 13 years of some rather quirky cars.
With its compact size, the 2012 Scion iQ is excellent for cities, offering easy parking and good drivability. But harsh engine noise will make longer trips uncomfortable.
Although it has a striking design and is an easy driver, the 2011 Scion xB lags far behind tech trends in both its power train and its cabin electronics.
Only slightly modifying the hot styling of the Scion FR-S, the renamed Toyota 86 gains new badging consistent with the Japanese market, and more power.
