Scion News and Reviews


Scion was founded in 2003 and the brand has been defunct since 2016. Scion was intended to appeal to younger buyers with affordable pricing, but it was unsustainable. Scion first started selling vehicles in the Canadian market in 2010. However, by 2016, Scion was folded by Toyota, although some Scion models were re-branded as Toyotas.
