Why the 2005 Scion xB?

Exterior styling

At the time, it was unlike anything else on the road. The square box was just something I was naturally attrated to.

Feature availability

There were tons of options and customizations available to order.

Fuel economy

I like that it stays around 30 mpg.

Rear seat room & comfort

There is enough room in the rear seat for two large men to sit comfortably or, in my case, two car seats for my children.

Driving position & visibility

I really like the upright postion for the driver. The seats are supportive and you have great vision in all directions for the car.

Why Not the 2005 Scion xB?


Its not quiet when driving down the highway. There is a lot of wind and road noise. There is not enough insulation in the door panels and there is almost none in the hatch and the headliner.

Cargo capacity

With the back seats folder down this car has a ton of cargo space. However, if you have four people in the car, the cargo space becomes almost non existent. Of course, this is a small economy car, so you should expect smaller spaces.
