The Toyota Company will relaunch its boxy but super-efficient model the 2017 Scion xB. The modified exterior and interior styling, new snazzy LED lights and a few curves make the latest version of the Scion series. Here’s a quick look at its myriad features.
2017 Scion xB – Objectives of Facelift:
Designed as a super-efficient hybrid between a hatchback and an SUV, the 2017 Scion xB is a five-door compact hatchback, and wider than most cars in this segment. With its unique box like looks, the 2017 Scion has been given a lower floorboard compared to its earlier versions, giving it a more compacted boxy look than ever before. The bumpers are slightly curved and sleek to add to its looks and come embedded with small chromium grilles. The car’s oomph has been further enhanced with LED-equipped headlamps, rear view cameras, and well-designed tail lamps. All in all, the new model looks more sporty and stimulating, that will very well complement the powerful performance for which the Scion had grabbed headlines through its earlier versions.
The interior of the car is very spacious and looks extravagant in its plush décor. The dashboard, like the rest of the car, looks very well organized and compact. The 2017 Scion’s seats have been designed with high-quality leather upholstery, giving a very comfy feel. Also, the seats can be easily controlled with an electronic switch. The cabin space has also been well adjusted to ensure there is more than enough leg space as well as the head area. However, a small compromise to this seems the cargo area that seems a bit low compared to the overall spaciousness of the car. The 2017 Scion xB has been bolstered with a bunch of safety features including voyage and footing controls, safety belts, air sacks with automatic shock sensors, satellite route framework, lane assist and departure controls, and anti-brake locks.
The car’s infotainment systems have also been well embellished – with the support of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, MP3, FM, phone synchronization, and smart calling, along with the much-required USB port as well. Even the camera on the back has been bettered with higher resolution for clear and accurate visibility. The sound system is powerful while having a great sound quality. Overall, the interiors are very satisfying in terms of looks and features and will go very well with its target market.
2017 Scion xB – Engine and Performance:
This mean machine will be improved with engine power and performance. Powered by 2.4 liters in-line four cylinder engine producing 158 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque, the Scion xB is equipped with both manual and automatic transmissions, it has a five-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic transmission. Finally, the car has an awesome fuel economy of 22/24 mpg in the city and a whopping 28 on highways.
