Well, guys and gals... IT'S HERE!! - The New 2011 Scion xB!

This is gonna be divided into 2 short parts, as there isn't a lot of info about this car yet. Part 1 is the Toyota page about this car with pics, specs, and videos. Part 2 is my opinion about what you read at the Toyota page - a view on the 2011 xB from the perspective of a 2009 xB owner.

Part 1:

http://pressroom.toyota.com/pr/tms/scion/photo.aspx?ncid=12048 Well there's the link to the Toyota page I was talking about, and on there you can find pictures, videos, and some specs.

Also, hear what other xB owners have to say about it here: http://newscionxb.com/2nd_gen_scion_xb_talk/2011_xb-t3377.0.html

Part 2:

Here's how it went down when I clicked on the link above: "Wow that's... different!... And cool!... Well, I don't like that part a whole lot... Oooh I like that... Ew... Huh... Nice!..."

For those of you who don't know a lot about the '08 - '10 xB's, I'll point out some differences for ya.

On the outside...

For starters, the upper grill is a lot narrower than the '10 (more like the grill on the current Scion xD and the Toyota Corolla Rumion [the Japanese counterpart of the '10 xB]), and the lower grill is much larger (again, xD and Rumion). The lines are much sharper than the '10 xB. In fact, compared to the '11, the '10 looks "soft". On the xB's behind, the reverse light has been put into each of the tail lights, instead of the single reverse light low on the back bumper, and two reflectors have been put in on each side. Those are some main differences on the outside. There are many more, including the headlights, but I feel like I you already gathered that from the Toyota link.

On the inside...

First thing I noticed was the pattern on the seats. It's a little hard to tell how intense the design is in the picture, so I'll to see it in person to judge that. Also, the guage cluster is redesigned. It's hard to explain, because it is more compact, but more spread out at the same time. For a good comparison, check out some pictures on Google Images. The center armrest/console thing is different too. The armrest is more substantial, and the iPod/USB/AUX input gismo is inside the console insead of outside.

Really though, don't judge this car completely by what I say. I just saw it for the first time today, and thought ya'll would want to see it. For colors, release date and price, look at the link at the top in Part 1 - it has everything you need to know.

Yes, I love my '09 xB and I will keep it for a long time.

Thanks for reading.

      As far as I know, it has the same 2.4L 4cyl that's in the tC, Camry, and '08 - '10 xB. And trust me - it can fly.

      Gismo. I like that word. What about power? I feel like one of these would FLY with a V6 in it, or a hyped-up I4.

      Scions are GREAT for the money, and they are VERY roomy. Thanks for the comment!
