It looks like the new bB with a front modified to look like an xB with an enlarged bumper. Personally I am not sure if the square face looks right with the round body.

Who knows where it came from, would be nice to read the small print.

what we are getting will be 85% t2b so this could be what we are getting. or it could be more t2b ish

That thumbnail looks more like the new bB than the t2B. :question:

yeah.. i can't tell anything from such a small picture... the front emblem even looks Honda-ish...

but rumors from my guys says it will resemble alot to the t2B concept as hotbox mentioned.

that pic looks like bB mixed with t2b


the new one will have a 2.4 , be larger in every dimension , get worse gas mileage , be faster but not by a lot , no 07 and newer 2.4's will be supercharged ( supposedly )


it would be VERY unlikely that i would buy the new one. i don't want the 2.4 period but that's just me.

Tried to blow it up but looses definition. Looks like maybe Japanese writing below. Does not look like new bB....Interesting........

What part of it looks like the t2B? I don't see the resemblance.

Just looks like a new bB with a front end designed to look like the current xB, and oversized wheels.

Maybe the 2.4L rumor mill is being fed by the Calty team to build a buzz in hopes of getting their version chosen? It's happened before in other industries.

the 2.4 is not a rumor mill. people want bigger and more power soo......

the wheels look t2b , the rear 3/4 of the car looks like the t2b but with four regular doors

The new bB has a "pinstripe" ridge that runs from the headlights to the rear, this thumbnail does too and the t2B doesn't. Also the bottom of the doors of the t2B are higher than the new bB and this thumbnail. Finally the hood of the t2B wraps into the fenders and the new bB and this thumbnail the hood is flat.

It's just a thumbail maybe from some JDM car tabloid so who knows.

i don't know what car that is but it looks much larger than the bB that's for damned sure. and that car doesnt have two hiplines like the bb

I like the current xB the most.
The new bB and t2b look like crap to me..

The pic featured here is an "ok" middleground in my mind... but nothin' quite like the current model.

I don't like the new one either, I'm glad I have mine.

I'm not a hater I promise...but I really don't think that's an xB bB or t2B or even a Toyota...it looks ALOT like the Honda Element SC prototype

Seems to me there is a lot of round clearance - maybe a crossover sport ute/ cute ute sorta thing?

I hate that car if that is the new scion.. and i think scion should stick with the "Boxey" figure of the xB... I mean the whole reason of scion is to be different from everyone else.. I mean that pic at the top kinda looks like the new Nissan Versa.. which i personally seen and it looks HORRIBLE.. it looks like a miniature minivan.. and if scion starts making xB's roundISH looking.. its gonna look like everything else.. A MINIVAN! so I would NEVER buy the newer models.. if that means they are going to make it roundISH looking - MY OPINION, thats it :)

Lol, didn't it seem like everyone hated the current xB when it was first released? Outside of these forums there are still quite a few people that hate it.

Hate is blind. You can't truely hate what you don't know. There are quite a few on here that originally hated them but once they took a good look they got converted and saw the light.

Shoot, I used to dislike the look of the xB at first. I find it quite charming now, has a style unto it's own.

That pic looks like a studio rendering or model, perhaps for a small crossover/suv concept Scion was messing with. I don't imagine that it could be the xB'x replacement...

Well it might help if the OP let us in on where the picture came from, otherwise I'm just regarding it as troll bait. :nope:

technically there is to be no replacement for the xb.. it was supposed to be a one time veh and was supposed to be replace with something with no resemblence at all .

But then it was a success... I imagine Toyota brass had to rethink thier strategy.

there IS a replacement.. and it will still be called the xB.

there's a 50% chance that car pictured is a toyota bB,
and a 50% chance it's a daihatsu Coo.

They're both made by toyota, and niether one is coming here. :P

In my humble opinion, the new xB will be based heavily on the t2B concept car. It will also be the first Toyota model to use the next-generation Toyota Corolla platform, since it will use the 160 bhp engine from the tC sports coupé.

bB2NER
09-20-2006, 04:41 PM
For Gods sake I still hope there won't be a replacement xB. At least not being called xB.

from what i was originally told the nxB , and xA are being replaced , with similarly styled vehicles but they are to receive new names. not sure if this is true or not but i still believe it to be so.

09-25-2006, 09:15 PM
be really funny if it ended up looking like the daihatsu coo *cough bBknockoff cough*

scary as this sounds...i'd jump on that HAHA! it looks hAPPY! lol!

I like that one... I would buy that.

The wheels look sort of wierd in that picture though and sort of look ridiculous.

the coo is the bB about 90% . and no we are NOT getting it.

09-26-2006, 12:27 PM
yes i know its realted to the bB because toyota is related to diahatsu...family practically..and yes also like the bB we yankees aint getting it ...never in my post did i say we are getting it i said it would be funny if it LOOKED like it...

TOYOTA/scion's way of finding a stool pidgeon to replace the xb from what ive seen so far of any form of spy shot
