A thing of beauty...
By auto_fan on


2012 Scion xB 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I used a Galant I had for five years as a trade-in toward my Scion XB.
I have to say, the XB blows the Galant out of the H2O.
The Scion is a lot of fun to drive.
It blends the practicality of an SUV with the safety of a sedan.
It seems small on the outside but is roomy on the inside.
It also comes with free maintenance for 25K miles.
And by the way, I got the best deal around from Fitzmall.

Best Features

Peppy 2.4 engine, smooth and high ride feel, noise isolation, Pioneer premium sound system, Bluetooth-capable stereo, generous cargo space, tight turning radius, split-folding back seat

Worst Features

Just minor stuff. The center dashboard is a little distracting and moving it behind the wheel will not make the car less cool. It would be easier on the eyes if the color of the digital readings was soft green instead of bright orange. The armrest should be made of plastic instead of cloth because cloth gets soiled easily. Maybe a bigger engine as an option?
