MONTREAL, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - Those who are members of the SCION Nation or want to find out more about it can do so at the Montreal International Auto Show. That's where SCION makes its official full lineup Canadian debut with three highly customized, urban aware models.
"SCION drivers are a new generation of new and enthusiastic car buyers who feel it's important that what they drive expresses their individuality in the same fashion as their clothes, music and lifestyle in general," noted Larry Hutchinson, Director for SCION. "The SCION generation represents one of the fastest-growing demographics in Canada, and many of its members are still looking to buy their first car. For these people, we are pleased to have three stand-out examples of the promise and potential of SCION in Montreal."
On display are:
- The SCION Revault tC: The 2009 SCION Tuner Challenge winner features
modern architectural elements, a custom wide-body kit, a turbocharged
engine, and a unique in-car entertainment system - plus dozens of
tuner modifications to enhance performance and handling.
- The 2010 SCION xB Release Series 7.0: This production model - a
limited edition of 2,000 individually badged vehicles - features a
four-piece DAMD body kit with side skirts plus front & rear lower
lips, a unique TRD sport muffler, TRD lowering springs for more
athletic handling, and a unique colour.
- The 2010 SCION xD by MV Designz: This model features a 5-Axis body
kit, custom wheels, performance shocks and lowering springs, a TRD
performance exhaust, and a customized Pioneer Premium Audio System.
Members of Canada's SCION Nation can see these exciting models at the Montreal International Auto Show - January 15-24 at the Palais des congrès.
"SCION's first 45 Dealers have been selected and all are gearing up for our official Canadian launch in September, 2010," Hutchinson continued. "Our urban savvy, high style, highly customizable models are exactly the type of vehicles that customers have told us they want and we look forward to reaching out to this new generation of Canadian drivers in a way that is relevant to their unique lifestyles. To get things rolling, we have just relaunched our Canadian web site and SCION can be found at Igloofest in Montreal this week."
