2012 Scion xB

Posted: 02/17/2012 - 11:49 AM ET

Starting at an MSRP of $17,030, potential consumers will find the 2012 Scion xB highly affordable. It is available in 7 colors, including Sizzling Crimson Mica, Army Rock and Black Sand and Pearl. The exterior of the Scion xB has been redesigned to be somewhat less boxy with stylish lines. The appearance of the Scion is something consumers either love or hate. It can tend to resemble a refrigerator on wheels. The mirrors have LED turn signals on them, which helps to make the Scion xB one of the safest cars on the road today. This reputation is backed by the IIHS Top Safety Pick in 2011. The chrome-tipped exhaust pipe adds just a little flare to this ride. For just $299, consumers can upgrade to have carbon fiber window trim, or paint protection film for just $395. Both of these will help keep your car looking sharp.

Inside the cabin, consumers will be completely comfortable with the AC, east-to-use cruise control, adjustable driver’s seat, and the tinted privacy glass on the rear window. The Pioneer audio system will ensure that riders can jam out in style, to high-quality tunes. Speaking of music, the Scion xB also comes equipped with an MP3 port, so you can plug in your iPod or other device and listen to almost unlimited songs.

As far as safety goes, it’s easy to understand how the Scion xB received the IIHS Top Safety Pick. The Vehicle Stability Control will ensure that the xB stays on the road, even in the most finicky of situations. Traction Control and antilock disc brakes also add to the already outstanding safety of this ride. Smart Stop technology will detect when the car may collide with an object or pedestrian and automatically applies the brakes, before the driver is able to react. The first aid kit will help consumers feel comfortable attending to minor injuries suffered in a crash or other emergency, before emergency crews can arrive.

Under the hood, the 2012 Scion xB has a 2.4-liter engine with 158 ponies at 6,000 RPM and 162 lbs./ft. of torque at 4,000 RPM. It has a 16-valve Dual Overhead Cam and comes in either a 5-speed manual transmission, or a 4-speed automatic. The electric power steering technology makes for ease of driving and a highly smooth ride. Additionally, with 28 MPG on the highway and 22 in-town, consumers can feels secure knowing that they won’t be paying out the you know what at the pump.

One of the only bad things about the Scion xB is the fact that it has a lot of wind drag, which hinders the fuel economy slightly. It also has a fairly large turning radius and can be hard to see when changing lanes to the right. So, if you’re thinking of getting a 2012 Scion xB, you definitely won’t have to pay very much, but there honestly may be better cars out there, such as the Honda Element, which seems to get much better feedback from consumers and test drivers.

The price of this car model is very reasonable and that the features are pretty cool that would convince you it's worth driving from time to time. - Carmack Moving and Storage
