The guys at ScionLife recently got a look at the new Scion xD — the company's more sedan-like replacement for the xA — at some sort of no-photography event where alcohol was served. One of them sketched what he saw (above), despite being a few sheets toward the Tropic of Capricorn. It's the best we're getting until someone breaks the embargo the Chicago show next month, where Scion will introduce the xD, along with a redesigned xB. (Parent Toyota will also debut the 2008 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid in Chicago.) But simultaneously, Scion will debut its new models on Second Life, the hyped reality replacement 3D social-networking site. If our insurance premiums go up any more, we may just have to move there.
