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.
