We own 2004 Vovlo XC90 SUV as primary vehicle. Both vehicles have anti-lock brakes, roll-over control (VSC), and excellent, proven drivetrain/safety records (Toyota). Scion beats our Volvo SUV for; gas mileage (35 vs 21), comfort/room, standard features, visability, utility, and fun factor to drive. I can buy 3 of these for 1 Volvo SUV. Four older couples on a recent trip told me it reminds them of the VW bug when it first came out (a car ahead of it's time). I bought this car for business travel. (I'm in my 40s) My wife said she would rather drive the Scion than her $45,000 SUV. It's our family car of choice now. Thanks, Scion! Long live the Box!
Gas mileage, price, stereo, visability, fun to drive. Toyota quality.
