Better Mileage Than Advertised
By Shubunkin on


2010 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


I've had the XB (Blackberry Crush) for about 3 weeks now, and driven around town as well as on 500 mile trip. With the 5 sp manual, I am getting 28-29 mpg regardless of city/hwy (disclaimer, I am older and don't do jackrabbit starts.) The car has a lot of pep, handles very well, and has much more comfortable seats than a lot of cars we considered. After a minivan the size seems small, but the interior is surprisingly spacious. We hesitated because the EPA mileage estimate is only 24 mpg, but my experience mirrors that of others who have had 28-30 mpg overall. We are very happy with the XB.

Best Features

Center gauges, now I am used to them. Back seats easy to fold. Good visibility, lots of head room and leg room. Very comfy seats.

Worst Features

Fold-down front passenger seat, passenger armrest, pockets on seatbacks.
