Soon: A Born In the U.S.A. Scion?

If nothing gets in the way, we will soon see a Scion born here as giant automaker, Toyota is considering building the hit Scion vehicles in the U.S.

Inside Line reports that the Japanese newspaper, The Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun reported Toyota could use spare capacity at Subaru's underused Subaru of Indiana Automotive (SIA) plant in Indiana to build the Scion, the super-successful Toyota youth brand that sold 100,000 units in 2004.


Toyota’s Scion, which is a compact that comes in stealth-looking xA and unique xB models, plus a tC coupe is yet another hip, hot car in the Japanese automaker’s stable of bestselling cars – hitting a bulls-eye in the youth-oriented market where other recent examples have missed the mark. Since its introduction in 2003, the Scion brand has become so popular, simply exploding into a sub-culture of sorts. The young, hip and trendy instantly got drawn to the Scion’s customization potential – the Scion can be personalized to the nth degree with such things as color-keyed pedals, radio covers and shift knobs. The boxy xB is unexpectedly loveable, with its distinct personality and yes, who wouldn’t like a ride that can come with dynamite Pioneer sound system that includes a 10-color change illumination satellite tuner and auxiliary antenna, along with a subwoofer?

Aside from its great looks, the Scion is a performer too. Both models come equipped with extensive standard equipment lists including air and full power, up-level audio equipment, anti-lock brakes and other items. Both are peppy, fun cars to drive, with good handling to boot.

And did we forget to mention that the Scion is inexpensive too? Prices begin at just over $12,400. Mileage ratings for the xB automatic are 30/34, and 32/38 on the xA. Power for both comes from a 1.5-liter, 108-horsepower, four-cylinder engine.

As more and more hip and trendy vehicles like the Scion are introduced to the market, trusted online auto parts stores such as Toyota Parts Online will continue to provide premium quality Toyota auto parts such as Toyota A/C condenser, Toyota taillights, Toyota starters, Toyota grille, Toyota spoilers and more to satisfy the Toyota car lover’s needs.
