Scion xB details:

No one in the auto market is as hard-wire-connected to its owners as is Scion, and the 2008 Scion Xb is a ideal example, explained Mark Templin, Scion vice president. We've stated in the past that we'll probably always have a box in the Scion lineup, but our owners told us they wanted a bigger box. They talk, we listen and we responded with a bigger and better Scion Xb.

Like the previous generation Scion Xb, the all-new 2008 model was styled with distinctiveness in mind. This aggressive new compact applies layout components from the T2b concept car that was shown at the 2005 New York International Auto Show. These look look-and-feel cues include the soft angles between its wide and flat paneling, high beltline, elongated headlamps that wrap around the side of the car, inset taillights, rectangular grille, pronounced fenders, and single back backup light on the left bumper. The Scion Xb also features tinted back windows, and turn signals integrated into the side mirrors.

Scion buyers love to drive, so with that in mind, the overall size was enlarged, helping to create a more impressive driving experience. Developers increased the wheelbase by four inches, the overall length by a foot, the overall width by almost three inches and decreased overall height more than an inch to give the Scion Xb a more convenient ride.
