Regardless that it rides on a new platform, the 2019 Scion XB blends in unremarkably like a ballcap at a baseball sport. On closer inspection, the Hybrid gets blue accents around the badging, 15-inch wheels with low resistance tires, and it seems to be more composed than the youthful outgoing model that attempted too exhausting to be different. The Fu Manchu entrance fascia is extra streamlined and fewer angry, and the whole look is smoother front to again. However still, the one time the four-door compact turns heads is when it makes that whir-whir-whir lunar landing gear sound when creeping at low speeds or in reverse in EV mode.
The primary-ever 2019 Scion XB in the US is built on Toyota’s 20 years of success with hybrid powertrains.

The only trim within the Hybrid comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.zero, with automated emergency braking, lane centering, adaptive cruise management that works both at highway cruising speeds and in commuter visitors from 24 mph all the way down to a cease. It also comes with the eight-inch touch display screen with Apple CarPlay, and a seven-inch cluster show to remain competitive.
