Scion xB Review

The Scion xB was one of the first Scion vehicles you could buy. It was designed to be a funky alternative to the normal small cars out there, while still retaining a huge amount of practicality. For the most part, they succeeded.

When it comes to driving, the Scion xB is a fun little runabout for cruising around town and heading to the shops. The 4-cylinder engine is perfectly capable on the highway, but if you’re looking for something sporty, the Scion FR-S might be more to your liking.

Fuel economy is decent for a car of its size, and you get the safety and reliability of owning a Toyota product. Remember folks, Toyota owns Scion.

You can also get a lot of features for not a lot of money, including a radio with Bluetooth and satellite navigation. Also, some great safety features like a backup camera come standard.

The xB was designed for the person who wants to express their personality, so there are lots of aftermarket accessories available for the xB to make it unique to the individual who decides to purchase one. They can be new wheels, body graphics, or even different body kits. The xB is the perfect platform for someone who wants to personalize their car.

Being a hatchback that is pretty boxy in nature, you get tons of storage space to haul books, food, gear, bikes, and more. Scion has done a great job at maximizing the available space.

Also, as an added benefit, you get 24-hour roadside assistance if you run into trouble, and two years of no hassle, scheduled maintenance included in the purchase price of the car. Scion has even gone to no-haggle pricing, making the purchase process as easy as ever.

If you want to break out from the norm with your small car, grab up the Scion xB while you still can!
