Let’s say you want a vehicle that can safely move a whole lot of stuff, but you wouldn’t be caught dead in a pickup. You also want high-quality audio, but can’t shell out the money for a luxury sedan. And of course you want something fashionable, but nothing as showy as a sports car. Fear not. Your atypical list of priorities can all be found in one compact car. If you want space, style, and unbeatable sound, consider a used 2011 Scion xB.
While the Scion xB is labeled as a compact car, the interior is anything but. Even extra tall drivers will fit comfortably in the front and feel supported on long drives. Back seat passengers have not been forgotten and are also treated to expansive head and leg room. In fact, passenger seating is so roomy that some Chicago cab companies have started using the xB to shuttle happy customers around the city.
Music enthusiasts will fall in love with this car, which comes with an iPod interface, an RCA output for additional speakers, and a six-speaker Pioneer sound system to pump your perfectly curated playlist. If you want to simulate opera house quality acoustics, you can upgrade to a system which drastically improves digital-music quality and adds a touchscreen interface.
An Edmunds review explains that this Scion is a whole lot more than just a trendy looking car, especially if you intend to use your vehicle to move cargo as well as people. The 2011 xB comes with a generous 21 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to a whopping 70 cubic feet when the back seats are folded down.
