Fuel: 22 mpg city / 28 mpg hwy
The 2012 Scion xB is carried over from last year with no major changes. The xB is powered by a 2.4L DOHC four-cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) that produces 158 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic with sequential shifting. The xB continues as "mono spec" from the factory, so consumers may select from a number of options to customize the vehicle's interior and exterior to suit their personal preferences. Other standard features include remote keyless entry, tire pressure mentoring system and front seat-mounted airbags. A special edition Release Series 9.0 model is offered with limited availability.
