Toyota has announced that it will be discontinuing the Scion brand beginning in August 2016. While that may seem like a scary thing to Scion loyalists, it means the future of Toyota should be looking exciting for established Toyota shoppers as well as for fans of the youth-oriented brand.
After all, most of Scion’s models won’t go away—instead, they’ll be rebadged and integrated within the existing Toyota lineup. These include the FR-S sports car, which is already known as the Toyota GT86 around most parts of the world, as well as the iA sedan, iM hatchback, and the C-HR crossover that recently debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The tC sports coupe will be going out of production later this year, but not before receiving a final release series edition.
In other words, our lineup at Capital Toyota will soon be getting a lot more sporty options that are sure to appeal to younger buyers, along with all of the support and benefits that comes with choosing the Toyota brand!
