2012 Scion xD Review

Overview
Try to hide that grin. Feel the acceleration? That is because the xD packs 128 horsepower with a 1.8 liter powerplant. Notice the sharp handling? That’s thanks in part to its ample 16” wheels. Don’t like stopping for gas? The XD helps you keep going with an efficient 27 city/33 highway miles per gallon rating. SCION’S STANDARD MAXIMUM 160 WATT AM/FM/CD PIONEER AUDIO SYSTEM BANGS OUT THROUGH SIX SPEAKERS: TWO TWEETERS UP TOP AND FULL-RANGE SPEAKERS IN EACH DOOR PANEL. BEST OF ALL YOU CAN PLUG IN YOUR iPOD AND NAVIGATE YOUR PLAYLISTS FROM THE CONTROLS ON EITHER THE HEAD UNIT OR STEERING WHEEL. WHEN IT COMES TO CUSTOMIZING YOUR VEHICLE YOU WANT OPTIONS. AND TO GIVE YOU AN EVEN BETTER SELECTION OF AFTERMARKET ACCESSORIES SCION IS GROWING. IN ADDITION TO OUR SCION GENUINE ACCESSORIES SCION IS PROUD TO INTRODUCE ITS ACCESSORY AND APPAREL PROGRAM “OPTOMIZE”. The 2012 Scion xD an urban legend lives.
