Yeah. Nice video. I did notice that the Scion has different air management controls and no fog-lights. So how come the US buy it for $25,000? That's just under £16,000 at today's exchange rate. Are we in Europe subsidising the US market?

As far as I know they also don't get fog lights, HID headlamps, keyless start, dual zone air con or knee pads. The FR-S stereo is cheaper, and the interior isn't stitched as nicely. The interior cloth finish etc is poorer in the rear. They also have a larger market in terms of being LHD. Cars are also just generally cheaper in the USA.

Good points 1.998.

It's the same with most things in america, games, electronic goods, etc. If it's $200 for them, then it's £200 for us, no idea why like.
