To date, Scion has spent $100 million on the arts to help engrain the brand into youth culture and it seems to have worked with the lowest average age for buyers of any car brand. Still, the child of Toyota has suffered a lack of popularity in recent years, due mostly to some rather stale product. Helping solve part of the problem, Scion launched the new FR-S model into the lineup to increase interest in the brand. With an average owner age of just 31, the FR-S proved to be another hit with younger buyers, despite its higher price tag (for a Scion). Although this could change soon with the just introduced entry-level iA and mid-lineup iM. That's nothing, however, compared to the tC, which continually wins over youth buyers with the youngest average age of any car in the industry at just 28.
