Even though it was only in the marketplace for 13 years, Scion has done some great things for the automotive industry… and some really bad things, too.
The company that brought us affordable coupes and funky box-shaped cars has officially been killed off, with its models being integrated into Toyota’s lineup. While that won’t mean much to the average car shopper since the vehicles are still being sold, a lot of the things that Scion as a brand embraced will be gone. Outside the Supra, Toyota isn’t exactly known for exciting, trendy offerings, but rather safe and reliable sedans like the Corolla and Camry.
That means the things that made Scion models exciting will likely fade away, from cool concepts to embracing the aftermarket tuner scene. We decided to take a look back at Scion’s history, picking out the best and the worst things the brand has brought us over the years.
