Debuting for 2004, the xA is a small hatchback powered by a 108-hp, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
While the rear hatchback provides cargo-carrying versatility, the xA lacks the xB's spacious interior.
Drivers sit high and upright, with a good view out.
The firm and supportive seats are well-contoured, with good side bolsters.
Handling is fairly nimble, but unlike the xB, the xA didn't come with stability control.
Wind and road noise are pronounced.
The xD replaced the xA for 2008.
