Expert Quotes:

The stereo sounded fantastic; I couldn't help but turn it up frequently.

The stereo upgrade does not improve the speakers, which lack clarity.
Car and Driver

save yourself some embarrassment by forgoing the $480 TRD sport muffler

it's not quite like a trip to the Pimp My Ride garage, but it's as much as you can hope for at a dealership

The Bluetooth phone system offers little help and no features.

The 2011 Scion xD sports a vast array of standard equipment, including quite a few features that aren't usually included in this class. A first-aid kit is one of them; other standard features included in all xD models are power windows, mirrors, and locks; cruise control; a rear wiper; and a trip computer. The steering wheel tilts but doesn't telescope. All xD models also include a 160-watt, six-speaker Pioneer AM/FM/CD model that's MP3- and satellite-compatible and has an aux port.

The optional Alpine Premium Sound System adds HD radio and a 4.3-inch touch-panel display, and it provides for up to three amplifiers: front, rear, and subwoofer. But as with any Scion product, that's just a starting point. Buyers can order from more than 40 dealer-installed upgrades and accessories, as well as hundreds of aftermarket parts. Many dealer add-ons for the 2011 Scion xD are cosmetic enhancements, but they also offer a wide range of TRD performance accessories—including items like quick-shifter kits, larger brakes, shorter springs, or a performance exhaust system.

Oddly, considering the xD's extensive features list, it doesn't include a Bluetooth hands-free interface, and there's no factory Bluetooth option; it's only available as an add-on.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
