SAFETY | 6 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' side impact; 'good,' rear impact; Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Not yet tested
NHTSA




The xD was one of the last vehicles in the U.S. market to get standard electronic stability control, but it now has it standard. Otherwise, its performance in crash tests has been good, but not top-notch.

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash tests, the xD achieved just 'acceptable' for frontal impact, with 'good' scores in side and rear impact for previous model years. But for 2012, the model has been retested and now earns top 'good' scores, as well as the Top Safety Pick designation. The xD hasn't at all been rated by the federal government's new NCAP crash-test program and ratings system.

Otherwise, the 2012 xD's set of standard safety features is competitive: anti-lock brakes, side-curtain airbags in the front and rear, front side airbags, and active front headrests.

Conclusion

The 2012 Scion xD has good crash-test ratings, and while some other models offer more airbags, its feature set is competitive

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.
