The xD is about as outrageous as a share of Microsoft stock.
New York Times



The 2011 Scion xD is a small hatchback, but there's something a little taller and tougher about its design. From the outside, the 2010 Scion xD can seem slightly menacing. Some liken it to a bulldog-meets-Mack-truck look; others have compared it to blocky footwear. The standard 16-inch wheels sit inside flared wheel arches, with alloys ranging up to 18 inches offered as options.

The payoff of the design is inside; such an upright profile provides lots of interior space, but the wind noise is notably higher than in sleeker hatchbacks. The gauge cluster of the 2010 xD resembles a clock face, and it's mounted on the steering column and moves as the wheel tilts. Likewise, the dash is quite upright and almost like the designs used in SUVs, while the interior uses an unusual mix of glossy and matter surfaces.

Conclusion

The 2011 Scion xD is less controversial than the larger xB, but not everyone will like the blockier look.

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.
