You can get with this or you can get with that or you can get with none! Good riddance

What Toyota should do is just kill the scion brand and debadge all of their models to Toyota and stop trying to bring a dying company back to life. The last attempt I believe to bring scion back from the coma is going to be the frs

I'm cool with the xB. They should kill the tC instead.

killing the tC would cannibalize Scion's sales as they are starting to pick up in sales with the new re-design. the xB needs another refresh to boost sales.

what they really need is a TRD supercharger offered.

The more I see the new tC's I like them more... As for the SC, it's still a Camry engine...

I love when people buy tC's for gas mileage and then they end up getting shit.

i think my friends averages 28mpg. well,according to his car. AND he keeps it in "eco mode" basically a green lihgt will stay on, but will turn off once you start giving too much gas. basically pus$y footing and having the car shift at 2k.

i like sitting in my friends new tC2 tho. is very spacious. surprisingly spacious. i like how the windshield angle and dash design. there's hardly any sun coming thru the windshield so it keeps my legs pretty nice and cool in the passenger seat.

oh and he bought an auto

This, if the FR-S sells, they should make a re-designed Celica with a better engine, and not overpriced like Toyota has always done

It will sell at least the first couple years and depending on how well the car actually is, we'll see the years that follow

Neither are things i would ever hope to own but if u "WANT" a van then the XB&XD are about ur coolest option. I certainly wish i had either alot more than the dodge/plymoth caravans i had to endurge growing up.

I love my XB2, its perfect for my two kids and great for roadtrips. I don't really like the facelift they gave it in 2011 though. Can't wait to see what the new models look like.

When I was younger I wanted a 1st gen xB for my first car. I ended up getting a 4-Runner. I've always had some weird attraction to Toyota's.

but I liked the blatant squareness of the xB, it's sorta just minimalist art in a way. similar to how I like some music that is literally just 3 people banging on instruments.

I really wish they brought the xB AWD to USA.

Thats proubly not going to happen. Since The Fr-s is priced about what an optioned Gts was and the Tc is around a stripper Gt. It wouldnt make sense for them to stick another car in that price ragne to compete and canabalize the sales of Scion's 2 most desirable cars.

I am, for some strange reason, really liking the xB2 now. I hate myself for admitting this, but I find it's large size to be appealing. It still keeps a somewhat boxy shape, but with a slightly more aerodynamic flow to it.

I am in lesbians with the bB and love it for just being a box, but that center tach and puny motor kills it for me. It did, however, have a ton of room for such a small box. A ton of room!

They should wait for the tC2's sales to go down again, and then replace the tC2 with the Celica 8th gen.

^also a bad iidea. tC2 is finally the best selling vehicle in the Scion line up. Its very roomy inside and the liftback provides plenty of available trunk space. What they need is a tC2 sedan

That would prolly compete to much w/ the Corrola & Camery. It wouldnt realy make sense unless they completely changes their marketing strategies & price points for each.

Or a sportier TC that's more like a modern GTS but thats kinda Moot since the FRS came out.

Yes it would compete with the corolla,but the scion brand is aimed differently. For young teens/adults + styling + economy. the direction scion is taking with their interior and exterior designs is what's seperating Toyota's bland comfort route.

And have the Celica branded as a Scion? You have killed the legacy of the Celica with your suggestion.

Killed it.

Toyota wont bring back the Celica, they want it dead and buried.
Cheating in WRC = Bad rep, why do you think the 7th Gen was only FWD?

The Mr2 was to much of a niche car. only 2 seats + no trunk = not a very reasonable choice for a daily. They were great weekend cars & track toys but not very many people overall are looking for a 2nd car like that.
