Scion xD Overview

At its core, the boxy xD is utilitarian and an inexpensive transportation. It rides with short, jumpy motions, and it feels jittery on the highway. Its 1.8-liter four-cylinder is miserly with fuel and delivers adequate performance. We averaged 29 mpg overall with the automatic and 34 with the manual. The cabin is noisy, and the driving position is awkward. The front seats are comfortable enough. The rear has plenty of room for a subcompact car, and cabin access is easy thanks to the tall roof.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
