2008 Scion xD

It looks a lot boring than it is. (Hey, was a compliment?)

Don’t call it an xA. A on its butt clearly says xD. anyone who remembers the rounder of the bean-and-box duo that launched in the U.S. will be hard to see the xD as anything but a replacement for the xA.

The two cars are in size. The length of the xD has increased a 0.6 inch over the xA, and the width has up 1.2 inches. The xD shares its underpinnings and wheelbase (up 3.6 inches over the with the three-door Toyota The three-pod instrument cluster the Yaris is familiar as well, but the plastics are more upscale in the

The good news, at least for the is that the engine has not been over from either the xA or The xD is fitted with a 1.8-liter from the Toyota parts In this application, it makes 128 and 125 pound-feet of torque, improvements of 25 and 24 pound-feet over the xA, and it’s for a 7.9-second 0-to-60 time. We test an xA, but it had a similar weight and an powertrain to the first-generation xB that 9.6 seconds for the 0-to-60 run.

Another feature not carried from the xA to the xD is the chuckable, fun nature of the Scions. Some of the loss of fun is probably due to the increase in curb The xD is about 200 pounds heavier the xA. a forgivable amount considering the increase the xB has undergone. In exchange for extra weight, the xD feels solid than the xA. Its doors with a reassuring thunk, and don’t rattle through the

But similar to the xB we tested in August, the xD is boring than its predecessor. The for example, is more isolated, feel to the point of numbness. The goes for the soft suspension, is good for a modest 0.76 g on the and plowing understeer around corners. In short, parent Toyota has done the same to the xD that it had done to the xB: made it composed, and mostly dull. In words, they’ve turned it a Toyota.

But hold on a second. The xD still well, interesting. It’s a design, but in a good way, individuality is hard to come by in price segment. The interior and the can be customized with dealer Anyone over 25, though, stick with the basic or go two steps up to the navigation system.

The mid-level stereo and its multifunction were pure frustration to in the C/D barracks except for our youngest who were keen on the programmable (organic light-emitting diode) The stereo upgrade does not the speakers, which lack

Cargo space behind the seats, at 11 cubic feet, is a foot from the xA’s. the rear seats folded, the 36 cubic feet of storage the xA’s by four. The rear also recline for more or slide forward to squeeze in without folding. But here the Fit plays the spoiler, with cargo capacity and more-versatile space.

The xD looks a lot less boring it is. That, combined with the of accessories Scion offers for to individualize their cars, be enough for some people. We wish Toyota would that cars can be fun.
