2016 Scion xB

In the early 2000’s, Toyota launched an independent division called Scion. This brand includes several small cars that are designed primarily for the North American market and primarily to attract younger customers. The entry-level model is called Scion xB. It is expected that third generation of this model will come very soon. According to the latest reports, it will come by the end of this year as 2016 Scion xB.

The 2016 Scion xB will come with a whole bunch of novelty in order to keep or even improve its position on the market. In that order, new model will come with completely new look, both outside and inside. When it is about exterior design, changes will be large but still not so radical, so we can say it will be some kind of an evolutional development. Some of the most notable details will be new front fascia, which will feature new-designed LED headlights, front bumper, which will make new model look sleeker. Rear end will get new taillights and also new, chrome exhaust tips. When it is about interior, beside new styling, it is very important to mention that 2016 Scion xB will come with longer wheelbase (102 inches now), which will provide some additional space both for the passengers and at the trunk. Some of the most notable features will be new leather seats, 6.1-inch touchscreen placed on the center console, climate control, power doors and many other. The 2016 xB will come with latest infotainment system, which includes navigation, phone apps etc.
