Expert Quotes:

To get its occupants safely to their destination, the xD is equipped with six airbags and active headrests
Kelley Blue Book

Four stars, frontal impact; five stars, side impact driver and rear passenger; 15 percent chance of rollover in single-vehicle crash

Acceptable," front offset; "good," side and rear

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the 2010 Scion xD four stars for front impact and the maximum five stars for side impact. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety concurs, rating the 2010 xD "acceptable" in frontal crashes and "good" in side and rear impacts. The 2010 Scion xD includes side-curtain airbags in the front and rear, active front headrests, tire pressure monitors, and anti-lock brakes as standard.

Unlike some cars costing thousands more, the 2010 Scion xD boasts a long list of standard safety features. Edmunds calls the xD's roster of standard safety features "impressive." This includes anti-lock brakes with brake assist, traction control, front seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, and front active head restraints, which Kelley Blue Book notes "push the occupants back into their seats in the event of an accident." Visibility is "bad to the rear corners due to thick roof pillars but is OK otherwise," declares ConsumerGuide. Not standard (but available together as an option) are traction control and an electronic stability system-rarely offered on cars this low-priced-according to Cars.com, who also point out the brakes "use a disc/drum setup, not the stronger four-wheel-disc type."

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.
