Scion xA is the American market name given to the Toyota iSt, a subcompact car based on, and very similar to the 1999 to 2005 Toyota Vitz hatchback, which served as the basement for Toyota Belta sedan sold in the US as the Toyota Echo.

Compared to the Echo, the xA features stiffer suspension, rear stabilizer bar, bigger brakes, more aggressive wheels/tires, and slightly more aggressive final-drive ratios. It also weighs 275 pounds more. It comes better-equipped than the Echo (i.e. standard anti-lock brakes, tachometer, power windows/locks, and a Pioneer MP3 stereo system). The xA has proved to be the slowest-selling Scion due to lack of appeal when compared to the xB. For the 2006 model year, Toyota/Scion has given the xA a "refreshed" look.

See Autopedia's comprehensive Scion xA Review.

Some of the revisions included on the 2006 xA include revised front bumper, side skirts, and rear bumper. It also includes turn signal indicators on the side mirrors, audio controls located on the steering wheel, and it is the first production vehicle to offer an optional iPod input with headunit display. Other small changes to the xA for 2006 include a more refined, user-friendly headunit and more exterior colors.
