Scion is looking to combat its stale lineup with two new models.
Scion corporate manager Dave Harbuck told Car and Driver that two new production models are slated to bow at the 2015 New York Auto Show.
One will surely be the production version of the iM concept that is set to debut at the upcoming LA Show. It will be a version of the European Toyota Auris Touring Sports, a small hatchback that will likely receive revised styling to help it fit in to Scion’s lineup.
The identity of the second vehicle is unknown, although Harbuck did say that it makes sense for Scion to leverage Toyota’s global lineup. Two likely candidates are the Aygo small hatchback or the slightly larger Verso hatchback which offers three rows of seating.
Scion is chasing record sales which means the brand will have to sell more than its 2006 best of 173,000 units. Year-to-date Scion has only moved 50,285 units.
