The age of Toyota’s brand marketed to youngsters may be over as the company announced that that it will discontinue the production of Scion vehicles. However, thankfully, there are a couple of vehicle models that will be reintroduced and rebranded into the Toyota badge to meet the demand of everyone who fell in love with them over the years.
The beloved Scion FR-S will be repurposed and refreshed as the all new Toyota 86. Which is fitting, because the name is synonymous with the infamous Corolla 86 vehicle that has dominated racing and tuning enthusiasts for the past few decades. Not only will the vehicle be getting a name change, but it’ll be receiving some additional power as well. Manual-transmission models will now feature an engine that offers up to 205 HP and 156 lb-ft of torque which is up from 200 HP and 151 lb-ft.
So if you’re in the market for an older Scion before they all get scooped up, or are anxious to get more information about the new model, be sure to visit Markville Toyota located at at Highway 7 East just West of McCowan Road in Markham. We have a great staff who is ready to get you into the car of your dreams.
