Scion announced this week that its 2014 lineup would get a touch-screen audio system. All models will come with the Scion Display Audio System featuring a 6.1-inch LCD touch-screen, AM/FM/CD/HD Radio, hands-free phone and music streaming via Bluetooth and an AUX/USB port with iPod connectivity.

“Scion is the first non-luxury car brand to feature a touch-screen audio system as standard equipment across its entire lineup,” the automaker said in a statement.

In addition to the base audio system, all new models will offer the Scion BeSpoke premium audio system, featuring Aha internet radio as an option. The $1,198 system features navigation, social-media integration and smartphone access to 30,000 free audio stations.

Scion’s 2014 lineup includes the xD ($16,675), xB ($17,725), tC ($19,965) and FR-S ($25,455). New for the iQ lineup is the limited-production Monogram Series, starting at $17,275; all prices include a $755 destination charge. All 2013 xB models that begin production this month or after will also come standard with the new touch-screen audio system.
