Every major US manufacturer will be at NAIAS, the most important automotive event of 2016 in the US. Scion will mke no exception, as it tries to attract more and more young people.

Among the 11 vehicles on display including the iM, iA and tC, Scion will show the C-HR concept for the first time since its world debut last November. The C-HR concept targets young urban people. The production version is expected to be shown later this year.

The second model expected to be a surprise is the FR-S Release Series 2.0, the most exclusive Scion Release Series yet. The exterior is painted in Lunar Storm color with 17-inch forged alloy wheels. The interior has camel-colored accents on the black Alcantara and leather seats. The color combination is carried to the doors and steering wheel for a premium look. Production of the Release Series 2.0 is limited to just 1,000 vehicles.

The Scion exhibit also features two specialty vehicles. The FR-S that competed in Colorado’s legendary Pikes Peak International Hill Climb this past June will be on display. It has been modified with a larger turbo charger, improved engine/drivetrain cooling systems, a stand-alone ECU, an E85 fuel system and a more aggressive aero package.

The Pikes Peak FR-S will be joined by another FR-S that was one of only nine vehicles on the North American leg of Toyota’s Ever-Better Expedition. The Expedition was a 110-day transcontinental journey last summer for Toyota’s team members.
