  11. Test Drive: 2016 Scion iM CVTRead the original story

    Oct 17, 2014 | CanadianDriver

    Scion has axed three of its hatchbacks recently: the compact xB, subcompact Scion xD, and the tiny iQ. What went wrong? It might have been the competition or perhaps it was due to Scion's small Canadian dealer network, but in my opinion the blame lies with their styling: the tall, boxy styling of the xB and the smaller xD failed to resonate with Canadian buyers while the iQ's oddball styling had few fans.

    Oct 7, 2015 | The Chronicle Herald

    According to the dictionary, scion refers either to a young shoot or twig of a plant, especially one cut for grafting, or the offspring of a notable family. Initially, it seemed Scion was a method for selling here the delightfully quirky Toyotas sold elsewhere but that would require extensive re-positioning to sell here as Toyotas, hence the new brand.
