My wife and I arrived in the US one year ago and decided to buy a Scion for the price/feature ratio. The standard model comes with everything we needed (AC/CD player/curtain air bags/power wheels/power doors etc). You pretty much get everything with it. The appearance is not bad as well and being a Toyota (made in Japan) you can't go wrong on the mechanics of it. Comparing to the FIAT Palio 1.0L I had before this car is like a Ferrari...
Good set of standard features Good price Has standard Ipod plug Curtain air bags are standard Very stable (specially if you get the VSC) Nice design
Seats are not too comfortable Could be a little bit more economic on gas I don't like the silver color on the dash board near the shift (it contrasts with the rest of the interior which is dark gray) Lacks clips for baby seat on the center of back seat (only on lateral seats)
