UPDATE:
Toyota made an official announcement confirming its intention to kill off the Scion brand and absorb most of its lineup. The Scion iA, iM, FR-S, and the upcoming C-HR will be rebadged as Toyotas, while the tC will cease production in August.
Makes sense since all models except the iA, were Toyotas to begin with.

In Canada the Scion iA (Mazda 2 sedan) is sold as a Toyota Yaris sedan.


Toyota Vios/Yaris sedan elsewhere seems to have a better executed (cohesive) design.


The Mazda 2-rebadge probably handles better though.

I am glad most of the Scion cars continue, especially the iM (should just be Corolla hatchback), but I favor fewer brands and am glad to see Scion go.

Re: Toyota killing Scion - MT

You know the funny thing is I was on the scion website two days ago just curious about what they offered (didn't know xb was still around) and was thinking that they seemed as if they were letting products rot so they could slowly kill the brand. I just don't get the point of spending money to promote and badge the Im and Ia when they had thoughts of killing the brand especially with fr-s flopping. Scion was a pointless and cheesy "youth brand" and this is coming from their target youth market.
