The 2017 Scion xB is a five-door compact hatchback manufactured
by Toyota especially for American markets, fulfilling the needs
of youth. Young people are always starved for something new!
Something which is not regular or every day, for them Toyota
has another budget friendly car with an outstanding fuel
economy. The earlier, 2015 model year one was not providing
All-Wheel drive option which is said to be the biggest drawback
in the segment. Though it is considered as a hatchback
technically, it’s the fusion of both, hatchback and SUV.
There was no 2016 year model for Scion xB and was replaced by
Toyota Auris-based Scion iM. By that time production of some
other vehicles was also discontinued.
2017 Scion xB – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious
The 2017 Scio xB is wider than any other car in the segment. A
box-like shape is unique in the hatchback lineup. It is even
lower than before giving it a square-like an appearance on the
road. Not much has been changed in headlights and taillights.
Bumpers! Again, are new along with small chromium grilles.
Wider tires and body kit is optional, assembled only on prior
Inside room is very spacious and extravagant with nicely décor
ambiance. Dashboard fits the necessary switches in an organized
manner. Not sure whether the steering wheel of 2017 Scion xB is
going to hold all the driver-centric features or not because it
was difficult to deduce minor detailing from snapshots. Updated
navigation system and better infotainment system with premium
quality speakers are latest add-ons.
The system is enabled with Bluetooth connectivity, phone
synchronization, and smart calling and USB port as well. The
camera on its back has got a facelift too; its resolution has
been enhanced for clear and accurate visibility. Seats can be
adjusted electronically with a single push. The cargo area on
the rear side is little tight because of the cozy and
comfortable back seat.
Engine and Performance of Upcoming 2017 Scion
This beast is powered by 2.4 liters in-line four cylinder
engine producing 158 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque and it is
equipped with five-speed manual transmission or four-speed
automatic transmission; the four speeds one is optional. The
best part of the car is its fuel economy; the latest version is
going to witness much-improved figures like 23 mpg in city and
30 on highways.
