The very distinctive, boxy Scion xB has been completely redesigned for 2008 and becomes significantly longer and wider, with a more powerful 2.4L engine, increased standard safety features, and upgraded audio systems. A navigation system, with a seven-inch screen, is new to Scion's line of dealer-installed accessories.
Distinctive shape; roomy interior; wide range of standard features; customization options.
The 2008 Scion xB is a good choice for urban dwellers who need a smaller vehicle for easy parking and maneuverability yet need decent fuel efficiency, more cargo space than the typical small car, and a back seat comfortable enough for adults. As with the other Scion models, it comes extremely well equipped--including electronic stability control and a number of safety features--and there are no factory options, with a line of dealer-installed accessories aimed at those who want greater customization.
