Now I wonder if this is going to be a Matrix/Vibe situation with a simple rebadge, or we're going to see all new sheetmetal on the scion?
I'm not certain what your level of 'awareness' isWhy is Scion using a Mazda platform? Do they have some type of agreement with Scion/Toyota that I am unaware of?
A production agreement with Mazda will also spawn a new model at Scion. First rumoured to be the next Yaris, Toyota will utilize the Mazda 2 as the basis for a car to replace the xD, also due sometime in 2015. AN says it will have four-doors and a trunk versus the Mazda 2′s hatchback bodystyle. The new Scion model is also rumoured to be powered by Mazda’s 1.5-litre Skyactiv mill.
Well @Filmore, you sure do like to throw shade at me when you respond to things I say. That's okay though, I can take it.I'm not certain what your level of 'awareness' is
Well Gotcha, you sure do like to catch feelings when you respond to things I say. Thats okay though, I can take it.Well @Filmore, you sure do like to throw shade at me when you respond to things I say. That's okay though, I can take it.
I have a favorable view of Mazda, and if Toyota/Scion is going to make a car with them then I am interested. I wonder how much the styling will differ from the Mazda. The Corolla-based iM does look pretty close to the Corolla. Will the Mazda2-based Scion be a similar story?
I tire of forums that turn into a "you didn't know that yet!?" over and over, shaming people for asking questions.Well Gotcha, you sure do like to catch feelings when you respond to things I say. Thats okay though, I can take it.
