Toyota wanted to create something that will fit a hip, young and different crowd. But the company believed that the name Toyota wouldn't match the said crowd. And the company's solution is a new brand with a name that has been carefully researched to be very appealing to their target buyers — Scion.
Among the three vehicles wearing this new badge is the XB. It is a youth-oriented driving machine motorized by a 1.5-liter four cylinder engine that cranks out 103-horsepower at 6,000 rpm. You can choose to match this engine with either four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. This vehicle is engineered to meet high levels of reliability and durability. It gives you a smooth ride with its excellent brakes as well as its smooth clutch. Aside from the quite and tight feel, this vehicle has a spacious interior that holds easy-to-operate controls. The xB delivers a very pleasurable ride particularly on urban streets. It has good maneuverability which is matched with satisfying steering feel.
In its interior, Scion xB can comfortably accommodate five adults in its tall seats. It has ample legroom and headroom and it gives greater cargo capacity compared to what a normal compact car can offer. This Scion model is offered in one body style and is built 64.6 inches tall and weighs more than 2,400 pounds. You'll surely love the standard features that come with Scion xB such as power mirrors, door locks and windows; air conditioning; trip meter and tachometer; remote keyless entry; tilt steering wheel and 60/40-split folding and removable rear seat. For your entertainment while driving, this vehicle has a six-speaker, AM/FM/CD Pioneer sound system designed to read MP3 files. This sound system is also wired to accommodate an XM satellite radio receiver.
With its active safety components, you can say that this is truly a well-equipped driving machine. Ensuring your ride's safety are traction control, antilock brakes with Brake Assist and Electronic Brake-force Distribution as well as Vehicle Stability Control. It also offers three-point safety belts in all seating positions. If you want you can outfit your xB with several options available.
