2014 Scion xB Safety

9.0
On Safety

The 2014 Scion xB continues to set its sights on younger drivers -- and with good crash-test scores and a respectable list of safety features, there's nothing to avoid here.

The federal government hasn't crash-tested the Scion xB in many model years, although the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given the xB a 'good' rating for all its crash tests.

The 2014 Scion xB is a safe pick -- whether you go by its feature set or crash-test ratings.

Front, side, and side-curtain airbags are all included, as is stability control, which can be temporarily disengaged to churn through snowy driveways.

From a driving standpoint, the xB can be frustrating for its lack of outward visibility; the wide rear pillars create a substantial blind spot for most drivers.
