The 2004 Scion xA ushers in a new name and fresh concept, as well as a dynamic approach to designing, developing and marketing an entry level sedan to meet the demands of a unique type of young new-car buyer.

Scion, the new car marque from Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., Inc., was created to suit the demands of an emerging culture of new car buyers known as Gen Y.

The xA debuts as a muscular subcompact five-door that features an athletic stance, sculpted wheel arches and tightly connected visual cues that flow dramatically from front to rear.

The xA has a wide front grille and strong rocker panel extensions that enhances its horizontal, muscular stance and visually draws the vehicle closer to the ground. In the rear, the xA’s wide fifth door hatch allows easy access to a spacious rear cargo area. Personal exterior customization of the xA is possible with several available exterior appearance accessories.

The xA is powered by a capable 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine, and equipped with variable valve timing with intelligence that produces 108 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 105 lb-ft. of torque at 4,200 rpm.

All xA’s are equipped with standard Anti-Lock Brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution.
