Scion may launch its third generation version of its funky xB model next year as a 2015 model.

The rumors are swirling about just exactly what is, or isn’t, going on at the Toyota youth brand with the latest being a report about the redesigned xB.

In a recent interview brand boss Doug Murtha commented that both the xB and xD are “logical candidates” for a redesign in 2015. Murtha wouldn’t give specifics but was eager to quash reports that no new models would arrive until 2017.

According to a recent report, Scion is currently examining two new five-door hatchback models for the US market, both of which will also be sold in Japan. The cars are both being engineered to meet strict US safety standards.

While keeping its core products fresh is important, Scion is also looking to add new models and is exploring the possibility of a compact sedan based off the FR-S rear-wheel drive platform. There is a possible road block to the plan, however, with Subaru (which co-developed the car) reportedly “dragging its heels” on the project.

A larger issue is that Toyota would have to approve the sedan for use as a Toyota branded model in other global markets in order to make a business case for the car.

Hi Miela, welcome to the forum!

Click on the "FORUM" link at the top of the page on the left side just below the photo of the 3 xB's and the site title. That will take you to a page listing all of the forum topics.

Once on that page select the topic you think best matches your question. For example you could click on the topic that called "INTRODUCTIONS" and click "post new thread" to start a new discussion to tell us about yourself and your xB. :)
