2008 Redesign Year
The xB grew longer and wider with the 2008 redesign. The amount of interior space offered, given the exterior dimensions, is quite impressive.
Two adults will fit into the back seat with ease; three can be accommodated in a pinch. The 2.4-liter engine delivers better performance, but worse fuel economy -- only 23 mpg with the automatic transmission. While the revised styling improved interior comfort, it hurt outward visibility to the rear. Later models offered a rear-view camera to try to compensate.

2004 Redesign Year
The cube-like xB has very good space efficiency and a roomy interior. The low floor and high roof make access almost as easy as walking into the next room.
Handling is fairly nimble. Good visibility and compact dimensions make the xB a great city car. However, on a long highway drive, its choppy ride and high levels of wind noise can be somewhat fatiguing. In our testing, the manual transmission xB got 30 mpg. Electronic stability control was available from the first year, which is rather impressive for such an inexpensive car.
