The 2008 Scion xB receives a huge power upgrade over its predecessor with a 158-horsepower 2.4-liter dual overhead cam four-cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing—the same engine found in the tC coupe. The engine delivers 162 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm and it can be mated to a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic with sequential shifting. Another upgrade over the previous generation, the xB now rides on 16-inch steel wheels with larger brakes for more stopping power. The interior offers a number of storage units, a driver’s right armrest has been added and the audio system has been upgraded to include standard rear head unit outputs to allow external amps to boost power to the front and rear speakers and subwoofers.

Best car ever! by BAD on 03/03/2011. Trim: 2008 Scion xB 5-Door Wagon, Owned 4 years.

Pros: The best little car I have owned period! I now have over 157,000 miles on my little scooter and it hasn't had one problem. It's comfortable and roomy. I am 6'2" and this thing feels like a big SUV inside. I have owned my XB since June of 2007 and it has never let me down like all the German cars that I have owned have. The motor in this car is so strong I think it will go another 157,000 miles. When the motor does go I plan on replacing the motor and keeping the car.
Cons: Nothing
Overall review: Best value and great quality. Has standard features found on luxury cars. Make sure to opt for the TRD Exhaust and upgraded stereo. One stereo has RCA outputs for and amplifier. I have 940 watts and a bass tube running on my system and it sounds great!
