Scion Announces New iM Model

Posted by Jared Katsoupis on Tue, Nov 25, 2014 @ 07:00 AM

There are some Toyota vehicles that the United States doesn’t sell. Ever hear of the Aurion sedan? How about the Aygo hatchback? No? Well, you’re not alone. These vehicles have been exclusively sold overseas for the better part of a decade, and while Toyota does a good job of catering to the wide range of vehicles that people in the U.S. like, you can’t help but be curious about the other models Toyota makes that we don’t always see here.
