To prepare for reviewing the Scion xB Wagon, I interviewed a millennial driver at a local gas station today. He was eager to tell me about his 2006 Scion xB Wagon which he owned since 2010. After six years of driving in a variety of circumstances and weather, he spoke very highly of this vehicle. He especially likes the interior space, which is not obvious when you look at the size of the vehicle. He said he has excellent visibility all around with hardly any blind spots and commented that it is easy to clean and maintain because so much of the interior is conveniently made of plastic of one kind or another. He says his fuel economy is about average but on some road trips he has had up to 32 mpg. In his words, "It takes me everywhere I want to go and has plenty of room for my gear and other people." That seems to be rather high praise for a well used and well cared for Scion xB Wagon.
Roomy and Practical
With that as background, consider the 2015 Scion xB Wagon as a compact though roomy vehicle with ample cargo space. It moves people and cargo quite easily. Though it does not have many factory options available for customizing it, your Scion dealer is able to add a wide range of amenities to make it feel precisely the way you want it to.
Baierl Budget Car dealership has plenty of experience with adding amenities. This might include different wheels, foglights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an updated audio and navigation system with easy integration with smartphones and social media. Performance upgrades may include a sport muffler, high-performance brakes, lowering springs, adding exterior accents and more.
The 2015 Scion xB Wagon has a very responsive 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine in its base model. That engine yields 158 hp and 162 pound-feet of torque. While a five speed manual transmission is standard, you can choose a four speed automatic. It is a four-door, five-passenger wagon available in one trim level.
It is a front wheel drive wagon with a boatload of safety features. Start with stability and traction control, antilock brakes and a rear-view camera. Then add air bags for the front seat and side curtain airbags. This is all standard equipment in the 2015 Scion xB Wagon. Parking is easy with this short vehicle and visibility is good.
Rival vehicles may offer better fuel economy, less wind and road noise and more classy interiors. Nonetheless, the 24 mpg is reasonable and four full-size adults can fit comfortably in the 2015 Scion xB Wagon. None of the rival vehicles can compete with 21 cubic feet of cargo space, particularly when the rear seats are folded and 70 cubic feet of space become available. The 2015 xB Scion Wagon is a fine combination of affordability, practicality and customizing.
