Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Scion xB

Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Scion xB

5. Looks a (grand)Mother could love

Even with its curvier, more conventional shape, the xB is still a bit of an odd duck. It features a big snout out front and exaggerated wheel arches. The LED accent lights and turn signals on the mirrors do add a bit of an elegant touch, but the fact the xB only comes with wheel covers from the factory completely vetoes these upscale touches. The xB may also have the world’s largest C/D pillar.

So, it would appear that xB’s time has come and gone, but with a new Corolla just introduced, maybe this Scion will finally receive a much needed update.

    Still better looking than the latest Lambo. What an insult to my eyes.
