Looking like a smaller version of the Toyota Matrix, the funky looking youth-oriented xA four-door hatchback is graced with sculpted wheel arches, a wide front grille, and ample-sized rocker-panel extensions. Inside, a black-on-white instrument panel resides at the top center of the dashboard. Power comes from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that employs Toyota's variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-I) system, and generates an adequate, though not necessarily stirring, 108 horsepower. A five-speed manual transmission comes standard and a four-speed automatic is optional. Standard equipment is generous for a car in its price range and includes air conditioning, a CD/MP3 stereo, anti-lock brakes, and power accessories. Available through select Toyotadealers, no less than 40 dealer-installed accessories are available for buyers to customize the xA to their own specific tastes.

Now with 75,000 miles it runs like new. Good in town and on the highway. Easy to park, short turning radius. A recent 2500 mile vacation drive brought 30-35 mpg while keeping up with others on the freeway... + More »

2006 Scion xA 4-Door HB Automatic (Natl)

A dependable commuter car

I have been very happy with this vehicle. Very reliable but not the car for performance. Good gas mileage and low maintenance are the big pluses.
