Looking on the Toyota - New Zealand page (LINK), I found a configurator tool. Now it's not from Scion, but you can put the color on a Corolla Levin SX or ZR and see how it's going to look from all angles. It also has a couple paints that we will not be getting (at least not yet).

It looks like we will get the seats from the base model, body style from the upper styles, headlights from the base, but grill from the Levins.

Lots of good pictures and information on this site. What's that you say about a panoramic roof??

Panoramic roof would do well with getting Scion to provide more value to its buyers but with the price range they're targeting, it's more than likely the least of their concerns.

At the very least a sunroof should be offered.

I would look for it to be on the release series, but not offered in the mono spec configuration.

why is a glass roof equated with value? I'm serious, this is something I've been trying to figure out for a while...

I think it has value because the public imbues it with such value. If people want it then it becomes more valuable. Basically a part of supply and demand.

Personally, I like it because it lets natural light into the car which I find quite pleasant.

speaking of... have we seen the release series iM yet??
I have not seen any indication of a Release Series iM as of yet. I don't think we would see anything until around the first of the year. Let it sell for a few months, then they'll put something in I really want and have to trade up (like a pushbutton start/smart key system).

The Aussie site shows a USB port in the rear passenger area. Haven't seen that in any US pictures. Would be nice.
That would be a smart move since allowing passengers to have that engagement helps at times. Plus it's another USB port to use if one of the others happens to fail, having back ups always helps :D

After spending most of my afternoon looking at the reviews again, I cannot find one person that talks about a rear usb port. Hopefully that is in there, but I would think at least one person would have mentioned it.

I did find a overview from a Toyota dealership about the Corolla hatch. Should be pretty close to what we get over here in the Blizzard White color. VIDEO

If a rear USB port is not available I bet there is some way to add one in, but i'm not sure how that would work and how it can be configured to be identified by the system as a secondary connection.
