Expert Quotes:

Bluetooth hands-free calling feels tacked on and is difficult to use.
CNET

The system also includes voice recognition...Unfortunately, it doesn't really work terribly well.
Edmunds

liked the Scion's dash and comfy fold-down armrest
Popular Mechanics

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
J.D. Power

having that cubby to the left of the steering wheel was perfect for keys, the cell phone and the ID badge

If you're shopping for a 2013 Scion xB and only looking at the factory options, your set of choices may look extremely limited. That's because Toyota's Scion brand sells vehicles quite differently—essentially offering one factory build, but adding port- or dealer-installed options that can personalize or customize the xB to be whatever you want—whether that's one that has a sharper look and feel, one that screams out in bright colors and graphics, or one that adds some interesting details inside.

Bluetooth hand-free connectivity and an iPod/USB interface are standard on the xB, as is a long list of equipment, including power windows, locks and mirrors; air conditioning; and a Pioneer audio system with HD Radio, RCA ports, and the capability to easily add a subwoofer.

Head over to the add-on list for entertainment options, too, such as an Alpine 200-watt audio system with a 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen with inputs for up to three amplifiers, or a navigation system.

Performance upgrades are on the list, too, although they're rather limited with the xB. A short-shift kit, Toyota Racing Division (TRD) sport suspension upgrades, and flashier wheels are some of the possibilities.

Conclusion

The standard-feature list is good for the 2013 Scion xB, but customization remains the keyword.

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.
