Model Highlights

The 2010 Scion xB comes in one trim. Each xB sports a standard 2.4L inline-4 gasoline engine with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). The same engine is in the Scion tC and Toyota Camry, coming with 158 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. All trims are available with either a standard 5-speed manual or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission. All trims are front-wheel drive.

The xB delivers a good, well-controlled ride combined with responsive, nimble handling. MacPherson Struts are used in front and a Torsion Beam suspension is used in the rear.

2010 xBs come standard with 4-wheel antilock disc brakes. Electronic stability control, traction control, brake assist, performance tires and a full array of air bags are also standard. In federal government crash tests, the xB earned four out of five stars for both driver and passenger in frontal impacts, and a perfect five stars for side impacts. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the xB its highest rating of "Good" for both frontal-offset and side impact crashes.

The xB interior offers a surprisingly roomy back seat for two adults or even three in a pinch. The 60/40 split seat can fold flat to expand to 21.7 cu. ft., with total passenger volume equaling 100.8 cu. ft. There are several storage bins and trays throughout the car that can hold laptops and other equipment. The front seats can fully recline, and a multi-information display with trip computer is accented with orange backlit gauges.

Standard equipment on all trims includes air conditioning, cruise control, power doors, windows and mirrors, privacy glass and steel wheels. The standard 160-watt Pioneer audio system features MP3 and WMA compatibility, digital media player connectivity and a mini-jack input. It also displays playlist information, to include track, artist and album information. Audio controls on the steering wheel are standard. An Alpine premium audio system, which uses a touchscreen and knob to mimic an iPod, is available as a dealer-installed accessory.

Scions are sold differently from most car brands. The xB comes in a single specification with no factory options (except manual or automatic transmission). There are, however, a wide range of dealer-installed options for customizing the vehicle as desired, including 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, a rear spoiler, remote ignition, ambient multicolor lighting, a selection of shift knobs, an auto-dimming mirror, a short-shift kit, DVD entertainment and satellite radio. A back-up camera and a navigation system can be added to the Alpine audio setup.


Model News

The boxy yet distinctive 2010 Scion xB is little changed from 2009, other than a new optional audio system that features a touch screen, HD radio, USB and auxiliary audio inputs. Sizzling Crimson Mica is a new exterior color, replacing Blackberry Crush Metallic.


Value Writeup

First introduced in 2003, The Scion xB is a 5-door wagon with a one-piece rear liftgate. Its top competitors are the Honda Element and the Chevy HHR. The 2010 Scion xB is a good choice for urban drivers who require convenience, maneuverability, affordability and fuel efficiency. Although compact, the Scion xB has plenty of cargo space and a back seat comfortable enough for three adults. Like other Scions, the xB comes well-equipped. No factory options are available (other than automatic transmission), yet there are numerous dealer-installed accessories available for customization. MSRP starts at under $16,000. Mileage averages 22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

Summary
Toyota Motor Company (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 Tundra, Sequoia, Corolla, Corolla Matrix and Scion xB, 2008-2011 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid, 2007 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2009 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2006-2011 RAV4, 2006-2010 Yaris, and 2009-2010 Scion xD and Pontiac Vibe vehicles. During the manufacturing of the Power Window Master Switch (PWMS), grease lubricant may have been inconsistently applied to the sliding electrical contacts.

Consequence
If the sliding electrical contacts are not protected by lubricant, debris and moisture that get into the switch may cause a short circuit and the switch assembly may overheat and melt, increasing the risk of a fire.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the switch, applying a lubricant if no abnormality is found. If abnormality is found, the PWMS circuit board will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 20, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is C0M.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
