During a press conference the New York Auto Show on April 8, Scion will unveil a "micro-subcompact" car they say is a reflection of its youthful image and signals the brand's shift toward "the growing urbanization trend." Three cheers, Scion - we think the xB, which grew a massive 800 lb. heavier in its second generation, was the wrong way to go.
Might this new vehicle be a version of Toyota's Smart fortwo-trumping iQ microcar, or at least share its chassis or some components? Toyota hasn't released details, and we're looking forward to learning more at the Jacob Javits Center in a few weeks.
Stay tuned for more details on the new tiny, fuel-sipping Scion as we get them.
