2010 Scion xB 5dr Wagon Auto (Natl) Engine
The new 2010 Scion xB has been redesigned with a larger engine for a quicker get up and go from its previous model, and a much roomier interior that makes you say "wow!" even when sitting in the back seat. Because of it's futuristic box design form, this highly functional vehicle is often overlooked. With more rear leg room than the 2010 Lexus RX350 SUV, you'll have no problem toting your passengers without complaints.
Folding the 60/40 split rear seats flat isn't a problem either. In fact, it's easy with the touch of an easily accessible button on the top of the seat. I was able to carry home my shelf system for an 8' closet, and my husband with no problem.
The LATCH system for baby car seats is very easily accessible and the rear leg room once again proves itself large enough for those long rear facing seats. Also, you will find it extremely easy to access the child in a car seat or to take the infant carrier in and out of the rear as the car is set at a great height, and the back doors open wide.
The 2010 Scion xB is highly customizable, offers room for 5 passengers, and has a decent sized cargo area to take a road trip with the family. The mileage isn't bad for a car with this much room; I averaged 24mpg driving to/from work through hilly roads with mild traffic.
The model I tested included iPod connectivity through USB with playlist controls on the dash, and steering wheel controls to change songs and volume level. I highly recommend this vehicle for anyone wanting something different than the traditional sedan or wagon, and is on a small budget.
