Scion, the youth-oriented branch of Toyota, returns for 2014 with five models. A new 6.1-inch touchscreen is standard in all models and controls the audio system.
The diminutive iQ leads things off. Competing with other microcars like the smart forTwo, the iQ crams in the standard features despite its small size, including HD Radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB/iPod port.
Up next is the xD, which is slightly larger but still a subcompact. It has a unique shape and style (something you could say about pretty much every car Scion makes), and is highly customizable inside and out.
The boxy xB also returns without many changes for 2014, still sporting room for five and plenty of cargo space.
Once the sportiest car offered by Scion, the tC coupe was redesigned two years ago with sharper angles and a more aggressive overall slant, to go along with a peppy 180-hp four-cylinder.
Rounding things out is the best and most alluring Scion ever produced, the FR-S. Developed in conjunction with Subaru, the FR-S is a straight up sports car: rear-wheel drive, standard six-speed manual, and fantastic balance and weight distribution.
