2008 Scion xB: Low-Slung Seats

December 10, 2007

The Scion xB's seating position is low -- so low I could almost feel the tarmac scorching the backs of my thighs as I spent time behind the wheel this weekend. Every time I fired up the engine, I found myself reflexively trying to adjust the seat, to make it sit just a little bit higher. The low position felt strange at first, but I got used to it with no worries. Still, if you're the type of driver who likes having a perch with commanding views, the xB will leave you disappointed...
