Cars Discontinued In 2015

Cars Discontinued In 2015

2015 has been a great year for the automotive industry, bringing us everything from faster-than-ever performance cars, to roomier and more efficient family vehicles, to semi-autonomous rides, and new-generation electric and hydrogen-powered models. We also saw a large number of fascinating new concept cars that will become production vehicles in the future, while several automakers reached benchmarks that seemed impossible a decade ago.

However, 2015 was also a year that saw many models being discontinued here in the United States. While some are aging models that are being replaced by new nameplates, other vehicles were simply phased out due to slow sales or because they were developed for niches that are no longer feasible in today’s changing market.

With the year now coming to an end, TopSpeed is taking a look back at the discontinued cars we said goodbye to in 2015. But, rather than include all the models that got the axe last year, I focused on those that most of us will miss and the vehicles that, at some point in their life cycle, made a significant impact on the market. Find out more about it below and tell us which model you will miss the most in the comments section.

2016 Scion xB 686 Parklan Edition

2016 Scion xB 686 Parklan Edition

It’s been a really long time since the Scion xB made any headlines. Last time it happened it was when the company showcased the Riley Hawk Skate Tour, an xB that pays homage to America’s 1970s van culture, at the 2014 SEMA Show. Before that, Scion launched a rather dull xB Release Series 10.0 at the 2014 New York Auto Show. Come 2015 and the boxy compact gained nothing new except for a standard backup camera.

But arguably the biggest news about the xB is that Toyota decided to pull the plug on the 12-year-old wagon at the end of 2015. Not exactly surprising given xB sales fell for the third consecutive year in 2014, hitting an all-time low since its launch in 2003. Once Scion’s most popular model in the U.S., the xB sold roughly 16,600 units last year (down from more than 60,000 examples in 2006).

I can definitely see why Scion wants to axe the wagon, but it turns out the xB will get a nice send-off with yet another special-edition model. Dubbed 686 Parklan Edition, the limited-edition compact is the result of Scion’s cooperation with 686, a snowboarding and technical winter apparel company, and aimed at buyers seeking "a unique combination of fashion and function." Keep reading to find out what that means.

2014 Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB

2014 Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB

Things don’t get much groovier than this; Riley Hawk’s Skate Tour xB outfitted with all the proper accessories for America’s 1970s van culture. The Scion is destined for the SEMA show happening November 4th through 7th in Las Vegas where the unsuspecting crowd will surely be transfixed by this car-turned-van.

The man responsible for this cultured creation is Scott Kanemura of KMA Productions. He helped Hawk turn childhood memories into reality by bringing back all the classic parts that make ‘70s conversion vans special. “Every element of this Scion xB represents some part of my life,” Hawk says. “I’m looking forward to showing it at SEMA and having people check it out!”

And check it out they will. This “van” has it all. The exterior is compete with hoop-style manual chrome mirrors, chrome grille inserts, Cragar S/S wheels wrapped in fat rubber with raised white letters, a high-roof kit, fish bowl rear windows, and (non-functional) side pipes. The most obvious change is the orange, yellow, and brown stripe job covering the entire vehicle. Mr. B.A. Baracus would be jealous.

Of course, Kanemura had to tie in Hawks love of skateboarding. The back hatch opens up to reveal a mini workshop for tinkering on boards. Even smaller is the pint-sized halfpipe for Tech Decks. The high roof kit opens up to reveal more storage for full-size boards while a rack on the xB’s tailgate holds two additional boards.

Updated 10/30/2014: Scion unveiled the official details on the x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB with just a few days before its official debut at SEMA. Details after the jump.

Best and Worst of the 2014 New York International Auto Show

Best and Worst of the 2014 New York International Auto Show

Okay, folks, the 2014 New York International Auto Show is in the books, and we saw more debuts than we could even keep up with. We saw all of the big boys come with at least one key addition to their lineups, but we also had a few misses. For example. we were hoping to see the Hellcat option for the Challenger and Charger, and some extra information on the next-gen Miata — not just a glimpse at its chassis — neither of which happened.

As with every year, we are set to bring you the best and worst of the NYIAS, but we’re changing things up a bit. This year, each of our esteemed staffers has chosen their favorite and least favorite of the show and let you know why they loved or hated each one — some of us even had complete opposite opinions. Included in the list below is the Dart-ized Charger, the even-more-retro Challenger, a concept from Land Rover and even a "dirt cheap" Aston Martin.

There were a lot of vehicles to choose from, and we may have missed one that you loved or hated. Let us know in the comments below what car you loved or hated the most from the 2014 NYIAS.

2014 Scion xB Release Series 10

2014 Scion xB Release Series 10

The Scion xB still looks like a shoebox, but give credit to Scion for not giving up on this model when so many others would have. On the contrary, Scion’s actually continuing to build up the xB with debut of the Release Series 10.0, a specially designed xB that comes with a whole new list of modern technologies.

Limited to just 1,500 units — like the FR-S Release Series 1.0 — the xB Release Series 10.0 doesn’t completely change the vehicle’s outward appearance, but it does have a host of modifications that at least makes it look a little more presentable. That’s probably the only recourse Scion has in differentiating the xB Release Series 10.0 from the standard version, so it set out to do just that, dressing up the model with am Electric Quartz paint that it describes as a mixture of pearl white with subtle green highlights.

That’s just the beginning of a range of new bits for the xB Release Series 10.0. But the best part is that the model is expected to hit dealerships this summer at a price of $20,420, excluding the $755 in delivery, processing and handling fees. Not too bad for a relatively exclusive xB.

Before that, though, the Scion xB Release Series 10.0 made a quick stop at the 2014 New York Auto Show for its official debut.

2012 Scion xB by 686 and Scion Racing

2012 Scion xB by 686 and Scion Racing

We know that snowboarders are the kind of free-spirited people that enjoy the simple thrills of life, but even they would probably rather be caught dead than ride this piece of work of a Scion.

As with many cars that are headed to the SEMA Auto Show, some are there to impress and some are there to, well, "attract attention." Guess which category we think this Scion xB belongs in?

To be fair, Scion claims that the xB Numeric is a car that has been "re-created, re-invigorated, and re-developed in such a unique manner." To that, you’ll find no qualms from us.

Among the many eye-popping features of this very interesting ride begins with a 686 Breathable Fabric Wrap, a roof that was inspired by a Bern protective carbon fiber helmet, complete with the company’s patented brim technology and ’frameless’ windows that took its design cues from Dragon’s APX frameless goggle, offering a full peripheral view inside the car. Other exterior modifications include a new 686 Vader Vent Mesh Grille and set of 18" Motegi Rally Wheels wrapped in New Balance Wet Race Tires.

Inside the Scion xB Numeric, it gets a little more interesting. The first item of note are the new Sparco race seats that were inspired from Union team snowboard bindings. The car also has visual racing mirrors from GoPro, custom built time gauges from Vestal watches, heated floormats from Freewaters sandals, a heating and cooling system from BOA technologies, radar technology from Recco Rescue Systems, a comprehensive audio set-up courtesy of Skullcandy, and Spin Imaging’s interior vehicle wrap technology, which was responsible for successfully wrapping the xB Numeric, complete with laser-welded seams, stitched panels, mesh venting, and even a waterproof zipper.

2011 Scion xB "Project Anarchy" by SR Auto Group

2011 Scion xB "Project Anarchy" by SR Auto Group

The attendance of SR Auto Group’s Scion xB "Project Anarchy" to the 2011 SEMA Auto Show was guaranteed after the tuning company won the 2011 Scion Canadian Tuning Challenge.

And if you have a car that comes packed with so many modifications, then it becomes pretty obvious why this car was sent to SEMA. Exterior enhancements abound and SR Auto Group didn’t waste any space in modifying the xB. Tho begin with, the crossover was given a Military Grey paint finish. Then, there are bumper and headlight conversions from OEM, a carbon fiber hood, trunk, and spoiler from Seibon, racing lips (front and rear) and side skirts from Molded A/T, a Monarch Puddle Lamp System, an Alumina Xenon HID system, and a new set of 19" matte-brushed, aluminum face, chrome lip Modulare Bespokre M23 wheels wrapped in Nitto tires.

Meanwhile, the Project Anarchy’s interior was also given a comprehensive overhaul, highlighted by a Reventon-inspired suede seat inserts, leather seat bolsters, and tri-stitched door panel inserts. There’s also a gloss black interior trim, a TRD Racing carbon fiber shift knob, white ambient interior lights, and Blue LED foot well lights. The completely modified interior also received a Kenwood audio system with speakers and a 12" subwoofer, courtesy of Hertz, as well as a Kenwood amplifier and a 32" LED television on the rear end of the car.

2011 Scion xD Tarmac by 0-60 Magazine

2011 Scion xD Tarmac by 0-60 Magazine

The Rally America National Championship has long been a series dominated by the Subaru Impreza WRX STI. The Impreza’s run was unceremoniously stopped last year by the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, setting the stage for a highly competitive 2011 season. One car that’s looking to gate crash the proceedings made its debut at the 2010 SEMA Auto Show courtesy of 0-60 Magazine.

The popular auto mag unveiled the Scion xD Tarmac rally car that’s expected to make its rally debut at the 2011 RANC. This isn’t the first time 0-60 went to SEMA with their own custom-built Scion rally prototype, having done the same thing last year. This time around, the car will be driven by Christopher Duplessis, who, incidentally, is the brother of Forest Duplessis, DirtFish Rally School’s chief instructor.

Judging from the looks and specs of the xD Tarmac, it looks like 0-60 Magazine did a splendid job turning this car into a full-fledged rally contender that’s poised to get down and dirty with the Imprezas and Evolution X’s of the Rally America National Championshp. Whether it’s overall build will translate to success on the dirt road remains to be seen. That’s something that we’re going to have to stick around and pay close attention to when the season officially opens later this year.

Nintendo Scion xB

Nintendo Scion xB

Every true-to-heart 80’s kid will remember the time when video games were constrained to 8-bit technology, where tiny pixelated cartoons of Mario and Luigi running around and eating mushrooms dominated the landscape. Those were the days, right?

For those lucky enough to grow up in that era, this creation by Erik Nakamura will be considered nothing short of genius. It looks like a car at first glance - as matter of fact, it is actually a car – but this Scion xB isn’t the ordinary Sunday afternoon version.

Inspired by the old Nintendo Family Computer, Nakamura went out and turned this Scion xB into a moving video game console, complete with door buttons that produce a variety of video game sound when opened, an actual video game cartridge that works as the key starter, a power button that is - if you can believe it - an old Nintendo button, two controllers on the front seats, and two projectors – one on the front and one on the rear – that can be used to play all of the old games.

On top of all that, this car can actually be driven out on the streets, that is, if you’re not too busy playing Contra in your garage. Talk about the ultimate geek car.

2011 Scion xB Release Series 8.0

2011 Scion xB Release Series 8.0

Not one, not two, but eight special limited edition models later and here’s the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show with Scion’s newest xB called the Release Series 8.0. We don’t know what it is about the xB that simply fascinates Scion, but we’re starting to take bets to see how many more special editions Toyota’s child is going to roll out.

Until the day when Scion stops creating these silly little editions, we’ll just have to bite the bullet and keep on providing information about them. The xB RS 8.0 comes fitted with a four-piece body kit designed by Kenstyle that includes an aggressive front and rear lower lips, and side skirts. The exterior will be painted in Voodoo Blue, a color that is not currently available on any other Scion model.

The interior will be freshened up with seats and door panel trim that have been covered in an exclusive black fabric with blue accents. The floor mats also feature the same color blue in the form of the "xB RS 8.0" logo.

So basically, what you are looking at is the Release Series 7.0 minus the TRD sport muffler and leather-wrapped RAZO GT Formula Spec shift knob. Oh, and you get that "nifty" blue color instead of the purple given to last year’s model.

The Scion xB Release Series 8.0 is limited to 2000 units and goes on sale later this month. Prices will begin at $18,405 for a manual transmission and $19,355 for an automatic transmission, which is slightly lower than the Series 7.0. For an extra $320 customers will also get a color-matched rear spoiler.

In a new Web series that’s sure to be must-watch entertainment for a lot of us, “Reinventing the Wheels” features two film makers, two DJs, a special-effects make-up artist and a pastry chef – yes, a pastry chef – are putting their car design talents to good use by having their own individual preliminary designs on a Scion xB. And that’s just episode 1.

2009 Scion xB

2009 Scion xB

For those folks who don’t know, the Scion xB is an urban utility vehicle which features an iconic box style with elongated headlamps, rectangular grille and pronounced fenders. Under the hood, the 2009 model features a 2.4-liter dual overhead-cam four-cylinder engine capable to develop 158 hp, with 55 more than the previous generation. With this engine the estimated EPA fuel economy is of 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

Also the front seats can be fully reclined in order to increase cargo space or relaxation. More details after the jump!
