"Great. Easily beats competition(Soul, Element, Cube)"5.0 starson by soccerson114
Pros: Great drive. Quick off the line. Solid feel. Feel safe inside. Not flimsy on the highway.
Unique looking. Easy to customize. Not as bread-boxy as Gen 1.
Very roomy and comfortable inside.
Cons: No major ones. I put a 2 sub box in the trunk so the trunk is a little small but there are over the wheel well subs.
Got upgraded head unit but now wish I had just gotten the whole car at a base price and used extra $ for aftermarket that is better)
Summary: The inside spaciousness is much like the Honda Element. But the xB has more character and comfort. It is more teenagery. Drives great. Got the upgraded head unit but now I wish I had just gotten the whole car stripped (except for the 16'' alloy wheels) and used the money to get a great head unit instead of the decent upgraded one. Got my own Viper security system instead of "Scion Security" I think that was a good decision. If you want great sound, you will want to get a sub or two. You can tinker with the EQ and get the stock system to sound ok, but nothing beats true bass. The subs do take up a lot of space in the trunk. I did find 8'' subs that go over the wheel well in the trunk so you still have a lot of space but I found them too late :( Easy to customize. The stock fog lights look kinda stupid so I went to Oznium.com and got their winglet LED fog lights with a strobe module. Awesome. LED's look real good in this car. The yellow light is just kinda gross. The xB is designed to be customized. I would suggest doing some customizing (sound at least). I also suggest getting the spoiler straight from the dealer. It looks good and is a pain to do after. It drives great. Great MPG. Quick off the line. I was between the xB, Kia Soul and Nissan Cube (Honda Element was too expensive for me but my family used to have one and the huge space between driver and windshield is very similar in xB) and the Cube was too small, Soul too slow off the line and both were kinda flimsy and loud on the highway. xB was solid as a rock with a wide stance but it didn't drive like a rock. I am 6'5'' and xB is the most comfortable. Get the spoiler and some subs and LED's (domelight and fog lights from Oznium.com easy to install). Get the fewest options from dealer and spend the cash on aftermarket. Get the xB. It is tight.
