2011 Scion xB
Review, Prices, Comparisons, Pictures
The 2011 Scion xB has a few interesting changes for the 2011 model year. The exterior styling has been slightly revised from its appearance in previous year, while the interior now has a few additional features that have been in need for a long time, such as a telescoping steering wheel, upholstery that is more interesting in a visual sense, a clock that is separate from other features on the dash boards, and a center console bin that includes an armrest that can slide.
The xB for the 2011 model year is available in two levels of trim: the base, which starts at $16,000, and the release series 8.0, which starts at $18,405. Both are available with a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine that starts out with a manual transmission and the option to upgrade to an automatic transmission. Both are capable of hitting up to 22 miles per gallon in the city and up to 28 miles per gallon on the highway. Both include the ability to plug in an iPod into the stereo system via an auxiliary jack, and both include a number of standard safety features such as stability control, traction control, and side and curtain air bags. Both also allow you to pay extra for additional optional features such as a navigation system, bluetooth wireless connectivity, a DVD player, and a satellite radio.
The audio systems on the xB continue to be impressive to young buyers, including a six speaker Pioneer sound system that delivers quality sound to the interior cabin with ease.
In conclusion, the 2011 Scion xB is a stylish boxy compact car that is good for carrying people and luggage. While its unconventional styling may throw off older drivers, in the end it is a reliable vehicle for drivers of all ages and backgrounds.
