Scion's 2006 xB wagon has outsold its brother, the xA, 2:1. This article discusses its performance, pricing, and some of the Scion line's many features.
Designed to appeal to the younger 'Generation Y' demographic, the Scion name is Toyota's attempt to remain competitive in a younger market, replacing Toyota models, such as the Celica, with sportier cars. The compact 2006 xB wagon, based upon the Toyota Yaris, follows suit. Wikipedia, en.wikipedia.org, reports that while Scion expect the slightly smoother xA to outsell its brother, the xB actually outsells the xA 2:1.
Named Editors' Most Wanted wagon under $15,000 in 2004 and 2005 by Edmunds, www.edmunds.com, the 2006 model hopes to retain its title. Like the xA, the xB sports a 1.5 liter engine producing 108 horsepower, which is less than some would have hoped for. It's interior is even more box-like than its sibling, though the design allows for plenty of room inside. Following Scion's tradition, the xB is meant to be customized, allowing consumers to choose from a plethora of options in order to build their ideal cars.
Base MSRP for the 2006 Scion xB is $14,680.
