August 15, 2013
TORRANCE, Calif., (Aug. 15, 2013) – Scion is the first non-luxury car brand to feature a touchscreen audio system as standard equipment across its entire lineup. Scion also announces new features and manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (MSRP) for the 2014 FR-S and xD, 2013 xB and the limited-production 2014 iQ Monogram Series.

All 2014 Scion models will come standard with the Scion Display Audio System featuring a 6.1-inch LCD touchscreen, AM/FM/CD/HD Radio technology, hands-free phone capability, music streaming via Bluetooth® wireless technology and AUX/USB port with iPod® connectivity. In addition, all 2013 xB models that begin production in August or after will also come standard with the new audio system.

“A standard touchscreen audio system across the entire Scion lineup stays true to the brand’s innovative nature and responsiveness to the desires of its youthful drivers,” Scion Vice President Doug Murtha said.

Available BeSpoke® Premium Audio System
Beyond the base audio system, all new models will offer the Scion BeSpoke Premium Audio system featuring Aha. This upgraded system features GPS navigation services, integration with popular social media applications and smartphone-compatible access to 30,000 free audio stations, including sports, news, entertainment and Scion’s own signature station featuring a lineup of its 17 music channels. The available BeSpoke system has a MSRP of $1,198. More details on the BeSpoke system can be found at www.scion.com/BeSpoke/.
