2006 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


I wasn't sure about the xA when we first looked at it since it was so small. Worried about lack of trunk space and comfort with 4 people. Wife loved the look and feel. Once we got it home, I started driving it instead of my Toyota Camry! It's really fun to drive, the car really does have enough room for 4 to be comfortable. "Trunk space" good enough for groceries, no problems with space in any situation so far. A comment on previous posts about gas mileage. The sticker mileage is EPA rated and is always at least a few MPG higher than what you actually get. We have auto transmission which has overdrive button, tachs about 2700 at 65 mph, helps reduce engine noise and improve MPG.

Best Features

Peppy, fun to drive, iPod connection, good sound from stereo. Good gas mileage. Small, easy to park. So far (10 months) reliable. Like console in the center, didn't take too long to get used to this.

Worst Features

A little more storage space up front would be good, maybe larger glove compartment. Will look into xB center console one post talked about.
