• What is it? The first major update to the Scion xB since 2007
• The basics: A boxy body and economical four-cylinder power
• On sale: Now
• Price: From $16,000

Toyota’s youth brand Scion has updated its boxy xB wagon for the 2011 model year, giving it an aggressive new look on the outside and adding more comfort and convenience on the inside. The latest 2011 Scion xB is set to go on sale this month and will be priced from $16,000 for the manual model and $16,950 for the automatic, a price increase of just $150 over the 2010 model. Note that there’s an additional $670 delivery, processing and handling fee attached.

Changes implemented on the 2011 Scion xB include revised front and rear bumpers, and a new grille, head- and tail-lights. The changes add a more aggressive look that’s altogether more refined than in the previous model year. The 2011 Scion xB will also be available in seven exterior colors including the new Army Rock Metallic and Elusive Blue Metallic. Hypnotic Teal will no longer be offered on the xB.

Inside, the driver- and front-passenger seats have been redesigned to include larger bolsters for greater comfort and stability. The seats have also been given a new light gray fabric covering contrasted with black fabric. A combination center console with a sliding armrest has also been added, as well as a new gauge-cluster design with a separate clock and outside temperature display. Finally, the steering wheel now includes both telescopic and tilt functions.

  1. High rev V 10 AND RWD for $16,000 in a Scion? I'm getting mine today. Thanks for the morning chuckle!

  2. Yea, that would be something. Great idea though. How about a V-10 Supra?

  3. I had a 2008 Scion Xbox.I dearly loved this vehicle. Being a grandmother, the children and I made great memories in this vehicle. I was involved in an accident and was hit head on in this vehicle. I have never seen so many drapes of airbag protection. My beautiful car was totalled. I received shoulder and neck trauma. My son said his daughters first car will be a scion xbox. We still have a 2006 scion xbox and are still making memories. My husband and I plan to be a 2-Scion X-box family in the future as it is so econimical to operate and drive. We love the mountains in ths vehicle.
