The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
At a bargain price that’s not much more than stripper econoboxes, the 2008 Scion xD is a pretty hot little hatch. Not quite a utility vehicle, but a little more robust than a no-frills hatchback, the 2010 Toyota Matrix offers an appealing combination of frugality and versatility.
