Scion xD: 'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' side impact; 'good,' rear impact; Top Safety Pick

Not yet tested

Among the smallest cars--minicars and subcompacts--the level of safety is rising quickly. The 2014 Scion xD is behind the curve these days, and it doesn't have a safety test score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In fact, the NHTSA hasn't rated the Scion xD at all since the agency updated its test criteria for the 2011 model year.

Ratings are available from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which rated the 2013 model xD a Top Safety Pick, with its highest rating of Good in all four categories: Moderate-Overlap Front Crash, Side Crash, Roof Strength, and Head Restraints and Seats. There's no rating for the new and tougher Small Overlap Front Crash, though, and likely won't be until the Scion xD is updated.

The xD hatchback comes with six airbags as standard, and the side airbags were enlarged last year for better protection. It also includes active front headrests, anti-lock brakes, and standard electronic stability control. But it offers none of the more advanced electronic safety systems that are quickly filtering down from large luxury vehicles to inexpensive smaller cars.

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.
