I've seen the new color, but am not aware of transmission changes. Hubby's XRunner is six speed. Hasn't really helped much with mileage numbers because the lower gears are short. I like the idea, but this car is really light and six speeds for a four banger just seems a bit much.

toyota dealer told me about a whole new car that scion and subaru are supposed to be working on...are you ready for this...AWD, 3.8L !!! maybe this would explain the 6 gears?
Last I heard it was going to be RWD not AWD. Also it will be a toyota not a scion, as I have been told, because it will be beyond the 20k price range and Scion's stay below that price.

I would like to see a Constant Velocity Transmission used in the Scion. My son's Nissan is smooth and quiet. It would also eliminate that gear hunting in overdrive.
CVT would be nice. Drove a Ford Freestyle with one last fall when we were looking to replace the station wagon. There was NO jump at all during acceleration.
