Scion is Still Trying: New Sedan, Hatch and Wagon Coming

But they’re still just the models Toyota and Mazda won't import to America.

Scion just won’t give up, and it continues to stubbornly hang on to its place in the American market. The company has just announced that it’ll bring three new models to our shores, presenting at least one of them at the November Los Angeles Auto Show. The company will offer two models – a hatchback and wagon – based on the Toyota Auris (which is basically a five-door Corolla in other markets). Engines could include a 1.8-liter or 2.4-liter gasoline engine.

Also a possibility is the highly-acclaimed hybrid powertrain, offered on the Auris hatch and wagon in other markets. As for the sedan, it is expected to enter into a smaller segment and be based on the next-generation Mazda2 sedan, which is offered in other markets and is earmarked to also underpin the next Toyota Yaris. Future updates for Scion’s existing models have yet to be confirmed, but the company still hasn't ruled out the possibility of an FR-S convertible.
