2009 Scion Ratings, Reviews and Awards

2009 was a quiet year for Scion, the Toyota brand aimed at young buyers. There were no major overhauls, launches, or redesigns; instead, its three 2009 models (the tC, xB, and xD) benefitted from major 2008 excitement with just a few tweaks. Scion's longest running model and coupe, the tC, did manage to debut with two special editions this year. The tC RS 5.0, for example, comes with a Toyota Racing Development lowering springs, rear sway bar, and sports muffler. The xB, the square-looking cross between a car and an SUV (often called a “toaster on wheels”), was majorly updated in 2008. Larger and less Japanese in style than its predecessors, the XB came with a 158 hp, 2.4 L engine, a major improvement regarding being able to keep up with a fast-moving highway. The xD, Scion's hatchback and only in its second year, enjoyed 30 combined mpg thanks to a 128 hp, 1.8 L engine.
