Scion xB Overview

The funky-looking xB is versatile and reliable little hauler. It uses a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers good performance but returns only 23 mpg overall. The ride is fairly compliant, and handling is responsive. The interior is quiet, but having the main gauges mounted in the center of the dash is a little annoying, and the radio controls are a bit confusing. The rear seat is enormous, and cabin access is very easy. The cargo area is generous, but low windows and thick roof pillars make the cabin dark and impair visibility. Reliability has been outstanding.
