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