2009 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I have a young son with mobility problems. Most SUV's are a challenge for him because of the step in height. The XB is easy for him to get into (mostly without assistance), and the cargo area is big enough for his foldaway wheelchair. I like the clean design of both the interior and exterior. Although, I wish the materials used in the interior were nicer and of better quality. Most interior surfaces are hard to the touch and black. I added a custom leather steering wheel cover because the standard steering wheel was rough and uncomfortable to grip.

Best Features

Clean design, full array of safety equipment comes standard, fun driving dynamics, good fuel economy (26mpg in town; 33mpg highway),interior space, very good standard audio system, the Stingray metallic blue color.

Worst Features

Better interior materials, more lighted controls.
