2008 Scion xB Long-Term Road Test

2008 Scion xB : Thinking Inside the Box

December 26, 2007

I'm just going to cut to the chase and say that I wish the interior bits of our xB were as unique as the rest of the car. The exterior styling is fresh and different. The center mounted gauge pod, though at first awkward, is unusual and fits the personality of the car. My issues are with the automatic transmission console and HVAC controls (lifted straight from the Toyota parts bin) as well as the button that changes the illumination on the floor and in the cupholders... That button looks like it came straight from an auto parts store.

I dig the quirky looks and the practicality, I just think Scion needs to work on the details to make the xB's interior experience more exclusive.
