Scion IR Teaser



Scion will introduce an all-new concept car at the L.A. Auto Show, and bets are that it will be the iR city car.


Scion trademarked the iR name back in April, and the car could be the third new model in Toyota’s affordable “youth brand” lineup. The brand this year came out with its iA, a rebadged Mazda2 sedan, and the iM, which is a Toyota Auris/Yaris hatchback in disguise.

We can see from the teaser photo that the Scion badge sits on a hatchback, and with the Scion iQ being discontinued, there is room in the lineup for a small city car.

Earlier this year, a Scion executive said that the third new car in the lineup wouldn’t be a crossover, but that it would be based on a global Toyota product, like the Aygo, a five-door sub-compact city car.

Not much other information is available, but AutoGuide.com will be at the L.A. Auto Show covering all the reveals live from the show floor.

The Scion iA design came from Mazda so maybe Toyota will partner with them again for the iR. Not a bad partnership. Mazda design and Toyota reliability equals a win car.

I have a feeling the iR will come from another company, Mazda might be it. Had a look at Toyota Japan's website and there was nothing like it that has a rear hatch as seen in this teaser.

My ones concern with the teaser picture is that the rear windshield looks a bit small. Would that affect my rear vision?

hard to tell from that picture alone, we need to see the entire windshield along with more of the rear section and rear side profile of the vehicle. Ultimately you'll have to sit inside to really test it.

The LA auto show should have ended by now. Has anyone found anything new about the Scion iR from the show?

We may have to wait until next year for the reveal. Haven't seen anything from Autoguide or anywhere for that matter.

From the teaser, we can see that the iR will most likely come in red, what other colors will be available? Or will they use similar color palette as the iA?

We'll most likely see it in the generic colors; white, black, blue, silver, grey and red. What I'm interested in is the one special color that it should get to separate itself from the other Scion models. The iM has Spring Green and the iA has the dark blue called Abyss.

A darker shade of red? The iA has two blue paints, one lighter and one darker (Abyss). Would be great if this is what they go with for the iR. Or maybe something way out there like purple.
