designed primarily for the younger generation, and therefore are individual in design and affordable.
The history of the brand began in July 2003. The first car brand became 2 compact hatchback - xA and xB, built on the Toyota Yaris platform. Both cars had already been sold in Japan under the brand names Toyota Ist and Toyota bB, respectively. In 2005 it added the tC coupe, built on the Toyota Avensis platform and equipped with a 2.4-liter engine from the Toyota Camry.
In 2007, half the automaker updated the lineup, introducing to the Chicago Auto Show a new generation of compact vans xB and all-new compact hatchback xD.
New urban subcompact xD replaced the xA subcompact, which was too close to US buyers. The car is equipped with 128-horsepower 4-cylinder engine of 1.8 liter with variable valve. Consumers are offered a 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed "automatic". The passenger compartment is very spacious - the rear seats are completely decomposed, they can even be tilted back.
