This Scion brings back good memories of my first Honda CRX. And it's just that, a memory. When Saab says that their cars were born from aircraft concepts, this Scion can claim the same--in spades. From the intelligence systems of the engine and brakes to the VSD option, this car screams ultra-high tech in all the right places. For all the standard features, this car is extravagant when considering the price and ownership costs to all of Europe's fragile models. From fit/finish/handling and roominess to a mild carbon footprint, the xD delivers like an F-14 Tomcat. This will become the old Beetle of our generation-- vintage classy with stealth technology.
Quick and torquey but dampened ride in addition to super accurate steering. Quite roomy for below average sized individuals - perfect for 5'9" and under crowd. Anyway you slice it, a steal at pure pricing.
Virtually perfect vehicle for the college-aged or even just plain aged who still has a sparkle in the eye.
