2011 Scion xB
The 2nd-generation Scion xB shed the skin of the ultra-boxy, original xB, and traded some of the funk for bigger size, more mainstream design and mechanical maturity. The single-trim xB is packed with air conditioning, full power accessories, cruise control and a 6-speaker CD audio system with USB and auxiliary audio inputs.
Toyota borrowed the Camry's 2.4-liter engine to give a much improved 158-hp hustled through either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed auto/manual. Maximum cargo capacity is good for the xB's size and the interior has pockets and compartments for all kinds of knick-knacks. The Scion xB delivers lots of space, decent power and impressive practicality, while claiming the second-lowest price on this list.
Maximum Cargo Space (cu. ft.): 69.9
Passenger Volume (cu. ft.): 101
Rear seat leg room (in.): 38.0
Fuel Economy (city/hwy): 22/28
