2012 Scion xD Fuel Economy

8.0
On Fuel Economy

The 2012 Scion xD simply doesn't return the mileage ratings of other small cars, whether that be in the city or on the highway, with a manual transmission or with the automatic.

Its engine is somewhat larger than other small cars its size, and the higher, less aerodynamic stance probably doesn't help, but the xD's EPA ratings of 27 mpg city, 33 highway aren't much better, if at all, than most mid-size cars.

Those expecting a green, fuel-efficient small car are going to be a little disappointed with the xD.

Granted, they're about on par with other tall, boxy hatchbacks like the Kia Soul or Nissan Cube.
