2011 Scion xD Safety

6.0
Safety
Electronic stability control isn't yet standard on all 2011 Scion xD models, and its performance in crash tests has been less than impressive.

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash tests, the xD achieved just 'acceptable' for frontal impact, with 'good' scores in side and rear impact. And while it hasn't yet been tested in revised federal tests phased in for 2011, it earned four stars for frontal impact and five for side under the old system.

The Scion xD includes a good set of standard safety features: side-curtain airbags in the front and rear, front side airbags, active front headrests, tire pressure monitors, and anti-lock brakes.

With imperfect crash-test ratings and stability control not standard, the 2011 Scion xD is far from class-leading.
