Bluetooth hands-free calling feels tacked on and is difficult to use.
The system also includes voice recognition...Unfortunately, it doesn't really work terribly well.
liked the Scion's dash and comfy fold-down armrest
sold in what the company refers to as “monospec,” which means it comes one way from the factory and accessories are added on by the dealership
having that cubby to the left of the steering wheel was perfect for keys, the cell phone and the ID badge
Scion exists in a corner of the vast Toyota empire, and one of its missions was to bring customization to its core fans--tuner kids who want a unique vehicle, or at least, one as individually tailored as a mass-market machine can be today.
All xB hatchbacks start with a reasonable set of standard features, including power windows, locks and mirrors; air conditioning; and new this year, a Pioneer audio system with iPod/USB connectivity, Bluetooth, HD Radio, an auxiliary jack, and RCA ports for subwoofer plug and play. The addition of Bluetooth is a big deal, as the xB lacked an integrated system for so long.
From there, the options list blossoms with dozens of add-ons. There's an Alpine 200-watt audio system with a 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen with inputs for up to three amplifiers, as well as a navigation system. The list also includes a handful of performance accessories from Toyota Racing Division such as suspension and shift kits.
Customization is the keyword for the Scion xB, and Bluetooth is finally standard.
