    I'd rule out hybrids too if I was gonna Prius a brand ...

    Of course Scion can't do hybrids - there is very poor payback on them when compared to the 'regular' version of the same car.
    Scion's demise isn't due to a weak economy (Hyundai) or small product lineup (Hyundai lacks trucks). It's only because they bloated the cars themselves, thereby stepping away from what was a value brand. Nobody wants a 22 mpg xB; I get 30 mpg in my o5 xB.
    And my guess is that AWD is not going to help.
