Scion, Toyota’s satellite brand for the U.S. market dedicated to the younger and sportier custom-base, is at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show with its new range of products that - with some exceptions - we already know pretty well.
More specifically, the FR-S and XD are in fact the North American counterparts of the Toyota GT86 (or Subaru BRZ, if you like this one better) and the Urban Cruiser. Then we have the iQ, which retains its name even under the Scion banners.
There is also a model which is not known on this side of the pond, the tC, a small coupe powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder delivering 180 hp combined with either a manual or automatic 6-speed transmission. The suspension system of this car is made of MacPherson strut at the front and a double wishbone geometry at the rear, with stabilizer bars for both axles.
