DETROIT -- I spoke with Nathan Poniatowski, Product Specialist, regarding this subcompact wagon which is custom built. It is youth marketed with a median age of 32, with 30 standard features, six air bags and a tire pressure monitoring system.

The engine is a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder that gets 22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. There are no plans for this vehicle to become hybrid or electric. It also has a special sound system. The price is $16,500 which came down from $18,000 just last year.

The vehicle is manufactured in Japan only and has won the Blue Book Resale Award.

The entire brand of Scions has 800,000 cars in production. Scion makes 70,000 xB vehicles.

When you purchase a Scion, they have the Pure Pricing Process, which means every dealership is the same price with no haggling. It eliminates negotiation.

All xB's come standard with four-wheel anti-lock brakes, brake assist, electronic brakeforce distribution, Vehicle Stability Control driver and front passenger dual stage airbags, front seat-mounted side torso airbags, front and rear side curtain airbags, and a first-aid kit.

The Scion xB comes with a 2.4-liter Toyota AZ engine shared with the tC and the Toyota Camry, which adds about 50% more power, but at 22 mpg.
