Imagined as a youth-oriented sub-brand for Toyota Motor Corp. (Toyota), Scion sold a limited lineup of models at what the company called a “Pure Price.” The goal was to appeal to young buyers seeking something different and trendy to drive, and to give them a simple, haggle-free purchasing experience. Mainstays of the Scion lineup included the fairly sporty tC and the funky yet utilitarian xB. In later years, Scion added the Mazda-sourced iA sedan, Corolla-based iM hatchback, and the Subaru-built FR-S sports car in order to inject some excitement. Not long afterward, however, Toyota elected to discontinue Scion, moving the most recent additions to the Toyota-brand lineup.
