2015 Scion xB vs 2015 Kia Soul
While not quite as out of the box as the 2015 Scion iQ, the Scion xB is an innovative take on a long-standing automotive segment as well. It offers a unique looking version of the classification geared towards the creative types of the younger generation. There arent many compact hatchbacks out there like it, but we found one that has a similar tone, the Kia Soul. So we wanted to take a look at the 2015 Scion xB vs 2015 Kia Soul to see which one is the better hatchback. The Soul came out 4 years after the xB, likely being created in a similar fashion to the xB to capitalize on its popularity. But, newer isnt always better, as the specifications of the 2015 Scion xB prove in this bout.
2015 Scion xB Advantages in Specs
As you can see by glancing at the table above, the Scion xB has quite a few advantages in terms of vehicle specifications. The 28 extra horsepower and 44 extra foot-pounds of torque offer a more enjoyable driving experience, although it is at the expense of a bit of fuel efficiency that means the Soul will save you a little bit of money at the gas station. However, the cabin of the Scion xB offers a much more roomy experience as well, with just about 10 extra cubic feet of space for you and your passengers to stretch out.
The Scion xB has quite a few extra features that make it a superior compact hatchback as well. For instance, the Soul doesnt come with cruise control or a keyfob for remote keyless entry. Also, while both cars have a great sound system with radio and MP3 compatibility, the Soul doesnt have a CD player and sometimes its nice to whip out those old CDs for superior sound. If the 2015 Scion xB sounds like the perfect compact hatchback for you, you should browse around the Drive Wheaton website and schedule a test drive, or you can always feel free to give the Toyota on the Trail sales team a call with additional questions.
