The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
A boxy, roomy, rugged-chic exterior; good maneuverability; and decent off-road ability just might balance out the utter lack of refinement. Whether you see the 2011 Scion xB as trendy or odd, it packs a lot of space and versatility into a compact space. The roomy, versatile 2011 Subaru Forester handles better than just about any other small crossover, though the need for a more modern transmission and a little more cabin refinement keep it from greatness.
