Most of the changes, besides the price, have come to the exterior albeit in modest ways. The front and rear bumpers have been modified along with the headlights and taillights. The most significant change is the smaller front grille with larger lower valance air intake opening. Kind of reminds us of the redesigned Mazda3 “smiling” front clip. Another change most consumers will spot, especially when one backs out of a parking space like a streak, is the removal of the single reverse lamp in favor of integrated rear lamps.
Other changes can be found in the interior cabin, which includes larger bolsters on the front seats, “geometric” patterned cloth seats, sliding center armrest and for the height challenged a telescoping steering adjustment. As for the price, Scion has added $150 to the sticker. Maybe that pays for the telescoping wheel and sliding armrest.
