Scion Haku Scoop

scion haku scoop

The nice thing about security guards at auto shows is that they know very little about security and can't guard shit. As Justin and I were looking for the aforementioned free lunch (which indeed there is no such thing as), we headed into a conference room. "Are you with Toyota?" the guard demanded (in the sense of idly inquired). A simple "yes" and there it was: the new Scion Haku concept. The California sunset (TM) orange car looked like a chopped xB, with bells on. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me. So… then I met Matt Hardigree of Jalopnik, who'd been given a magenta-colored press pass (PR) by mistake. I sent Matt back into the room to grab some shots of the top secret Scion, with the understanding that we'd post them simultaneously. Done. TTAC. Making friends wherever we go.

    Aha, so they do. And I didn't think it would get much worse than the rear pic. That is one FUGLY car. But, it would be nice to bring back the original (read: SMALL) xB in some fashion. I like the new xB, because us poor people deserve a nice wagon, too, but the whole Small-Car feel is great - I love my xA, especially around town. Maybe instead of adding 300-400lbs (xD COUGH), Scion will go back to a lightweght subcompact. HOW they managed to get the xD to weigh so much is beyond me, but it's definately no subcompact as far as weight/feel goes.
