2015 Scion xB vs 2015 Toyota Yaris
The Scion xB may no longer be a model that Scion is producing, but there are still plenty available out there, and we thought we’d share one more comparison with you to help you decide between the final version of the compact hatchback or a different vehicle from the segment available here at Drive Wheaton. With that in mind, we sat down to compare the 2015 Scion xB vs 2015 Toyota Yaris. Although the xB is one of Scion’s oldest vehicles, the Yaris still preceded it by roughly five years, and the subcompact Toyota has found ways to succeed despite lacking in some areas.
Differences between the 2015 Scion xB, Toyota Yaris
For instance, as you can tell by perusing the table above, the Yaris has no answer for the Scion xB’s pretty significant advantages in both horsepower and passenger volume, with are by 52 horsepower and 22.8 cubic feet respectively. Anyone looking for that extra boost in power and more room to stretch out in are certain to be more interested in the Scion xB. However, the Yaris does have advantages of its own.
Namely, the fact that it achieves a highway fuel efficiency of 2 litres less per 100 kilometres than the xB. Furthermore, it also offers a cargo hold that can accommodate 3.7 cubic feet of extra space than the Scion compact. What this decision really comes down to is whether you’re more interested in power and breathing room, or fuel efficiency and cargo space. Of course there are aesthetic differences as well, like the fact that the xB is a boxier vehicle while the Yaris is sleeker.
