Top Safety Features Of The Scion xD

Being one of the most affordable small cars in the automobile industry, one wouldn’t usually expect the Scion xD to have the bells and whistles that luxury vehicles have. But in terms of safety, Toyota, despite the recent scare, has ensured that its Scion xD will keep you safe in case of an accident.The rush of adrenaline that hits you when we have to make a quick decision that could save you from smashing into two tons of engine can be quite nerve-racking, but when the right braking system is in place, it might save lives. Toyota has implemented the most common brake feature, the anti-lock brake, but has added features such as Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist to ensure safety while braking.

Despite all efforts, sometimes you end up in an unexpected accident, but with the amount of airbags that the Scion xD provides, you have a good chance of remaining unharmed. With driver/passenger airbags, along with side/curtain side airbags, a big uncomfortable cushion surrounds you if you do end up in a collision. And with all the safety features, auto insurance quotes premiums stay affordable.

With all the safety features that encase you in a small Scion xD, it’s not surprising that the vehicle performed extremely well in the national government crash tests. The automobile earned five star ratings in both front and rear passenger safety in a side collision, a truly astonishing accomplishment for such an affordable vehicle.
