The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Scion xB might not be as trendy -- or sensible -- as it tries to be, but it fits a lot of cabin space into a compact footprint. The 2014 BMW 3-Series retains its sporting heritage, but has grown to become a high-tech, spacious, comfortable, and safe range of vehicles.
