Expert Quotes:

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

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
New York Times

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
Edmunds

The Bluetooth phone system offers little help and no features.
CNET

The Scion business model is set up so that the brand's vehicles are well-equipped at the dealership, but a plethora of dealer-installed options and customization possibilities call out to make these small cars a little more distinctive.

Going just by the features list, there's a surprising amount of standard equipment, from air conditioning to power features to a new Pioneer sound system with HD radio, Bluetooth and a USB port for iPod connectivity. A first-aid kit is included, as are power windows, mirrors, and locks; cruise control; a rear wiper; and a trip computer. 

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 2012 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.

 

Conclusion

With the addition of Bluetooth for 2012, the Scion xD offers what most young, connected drivers want--including many things that cost extra on other models.

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.
