2008 Scion xB Long-Term Road Test

2008 Scion xB: Boxed In?

March 20, 2008

Don't get me wrong, I dig the boxy dimensions of our Scion xB. Cool look on the outside (I think so, anyway), and lots of passenger room on the inside. But does Scion really need another eccentric-looking box in its lineup? At the New York Auto Show , the manufacturer revealed the concept shown above... It's called the Hako, and word on the street is that it will serve as the inspiration for the model that will replace the tC.

What do you think? Boxy good or boxy bad? Might be time for Scion to explore a few other shapes. Like triangles and circles, maybe. Or possibly octagons.
