2008 Scion xB: Cargo Area

2008 scion xB cargo area with stroller

Our giant jogging stroller spent much of my holiday break in the back of the xB, partly because we needed it for various outings and partly because I was too lazy to take it out. I was impressed by how well the stroller fit in the 21.7 cubic feet of cargo space that's available with the rear seats up. Just had to take the front wheel off (which we have to do with most of the cars we put it in) and slide it into the nice, tall space. It tucked right in there with no groaning, angling or cursing necessary. As you can probably see, there wasn't a millimeter to spare, but the rear hatch didn't crunch it at all. And we were able to store plenty of additional cargo in the nooks and crannies in and around the stroller when necessary. Trips to the grocery store and carrying unexpected holiday gifts weren't a problem, as long as they weren't very large or long. Overall, a very convenient companion for our family of three.
