Here in the states we had Scion till earlier this year when toyota announced that they will be dropping the Scion name as its target audience couldn't afford those cars.

It certainly looks like one and it seems to have the C-HR logo in the reflection. Not seen a 2 door!

Toyota's new designs are so offensive. No safe place to rest the eyes Glad Toyota put Scion out of its misery.

No its still a 4 door. Its got that high mounted door thing like the C-HR rear pic there. Same car just different logo now. Scion was a failing brand so all future Scion cars will be branded toyota like the iA (mazda 2) which replaced the Yaris, FRS, and what ever the iM is.

It looks like it could be a fairing for something. Could it be related to the cross traffic alert system?

Turns out that it prevents a "whistle sound" by redirecting the airflow from the body panels.
