Chicago Auto Show: 2008 Scion xB and all new Scion XD leak on the web

About 24 hours before their official unveiling at the 2nd press day of the Chicago Auto Show and we’ve got another leak on our hands with the premature sighting of Scion’s 2008 xB and the all new xD models.

Starting with the 2008 xB that’s based on a new platform, although it retains the boxy shape of its xA based predecessor, Scions youth-mobile has received a few curves here and there –how else would it diverse itself from the previous model? Maybe the most significant change for its buyers is the new 2.4-litre, 158Hp strong engine that replace the 103Hp 1.5-litre motor. Power will be driven to the front wheels via a five-speed manual or four-seed automatic (with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters). -Continued: Click “Read More…” below to see the rest of the article

Replacing the mediocre selling xA, the all-new xD compact hatch is based on the new Toyota Yaris platform. It will be offered with a 126Hp 1.8-liter motor (same as the one in the US Toyota Corolla). Like the xB, the xD will be equipped with a five-speed manual or a four-seed automatic the (with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters). Via:
