2015 Scion xB: Makes a bold statement

scion-xb-release-series-10“Scion is all about making bold statements, and every 2015 Scion xB is ready for Canadian drivers to turn into their own expression of style,” said Cyril Dimitris, Director of Scion in Canada. “Generously equipped with standard features and equipment, the Scion xB combines versatility and attitude in a winning formula.”

The Scion xBs mix of clean lines, sharp angles and a roomy interior make a strong statement, they aren’t its only selling feature. A 2.4L 4-cylinder engine delivers a peak 158 HP for lively acceleration, with a sequential multiport electronic fuel injection. Pair this engine with a choice of two transmissions – a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic with gate-type shifter and transmission cooler. Both deliver a combined city/highway fuel efficiency rating of 9.8L/100KM*, ensuring you’ll spend less time at the pumps and more time on the road.

Highly-responsive electric power steering, MacPherson Strut Front and Torsion Beam Rear suspension systems along with front ventilated disc brakes and rear solid disc brakes work together to create an agile ride that’s comfortable on the open road. For even greater driving fun, customize the xB with TRD Accessories – including lowering springs, upgraded shocks, sway bars, the TRD Big Brake Kit, and more.

Integrated and active safety features are standard in the xB. Designed to both protect its occupants and prevent accidents, Scion’s Star Safety System™ includes features such as Vehicle Stability Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Traction Control, Smart Stop Technology and Brake Assist.

New for 2015, every Scion xB is standard equipped with a backup camera with in-dash display, making it even easier to score that tight parking spot;

The 2015 Scion xB is on sale now at Scion Dealers across Canada, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price starting at $19,110 for manual transmission models and $20,130 for those equipped with the automatic transmission.
