Bye-Bye, Scion, Nice Knowing You


**Sorry for this being very late, I just realized this was not posted**


As you have probably heard, the 13-year-old Toyota experiment called Scion is coming to an end. In August, 2016 all current Scion models accept the tC will be rebadged as Toyotas.

I think they should continue the names of previous models. The current Scion FR-S should not be called the Toyota FR-S, but rather the Toyota GT-86. The current iM, should either be called the Toyota Corolla Hatchback, or revive the Toyota Matrix name. Although the Scion iA is not actually a Scion, in my opinion, should hold the name Echo in honor of the Toyota Echo we had many years ago.

Rather sadly, the Scion tC will not be produced as a Toyota, it will be discontinued due to lack of sales.

Scion over the years was not what it was supposed to be: a fun, reliable, quirky car for young 1st car buyers. In fact, the average age of a Scion owner was 40. Although it’s sad to see Scion go, it is understandable too.
