Toyota's Scion brand is dead but its FR-S two-door coupe will live on as the Toyota 86, the auto maker announced on Thursday.
"The new name and features perfectly complement our existing Toyota line-up of cars designed to meet the needs of creative, young urban professionals and we know this important vehicle will be very well received," said Cyril Dimitris, Toyota Canada's vice-president of sales, in a press release.
The reworked 2017 Toyota 86 – featuring interior and exterior design changes, as well as suspension and powertrain upgrades – will make its debut at the New York International Auto Show next week.
The 2017 Toyota 86 will be in dealer showrooms this fall.
In February, Toyota announced that it would eliminate the Scion brand following the 2016 model year and sell Scion vehicles as Toyotas.
