Safety Inside and Outside the Box
You’ve seen them around town, a boxy urban utility vehicle…the Scion xB. People either love them or hate them. At Peterson Scion, we love them! Who doesn’t love a vehicle with good fuel economy, lots of space and a stellar safety record? For 2012, every 2012 Scion xB comes equipped with the Star Safety System™, an all-encompassing group of safety features including :
- Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
- Traction Control (TRAC)
- Anti-Lock Braking System with Brake Assist
- Electronic Brake-Force Distribution
- Smart Stop Technology.
Vehicle stability control or VSC reduces the engine power and applies brake force to the necessary wheels to help prevent wheel slippage. TRAC will help maintain traction on any surface. The braking system elements work together so you can stop when you need to and do it more effectively.
What Comes Standard on the xB
The xB is great value. The list of standard features is long on a Scion xB:
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System
- Rear headrests
- An airbag system (which includes dual stage airbags for driver and front passengers, front and rear side-curtain airbags and front seat-mounted side airbags
- A first-aid kit
- Steering wheel-mounted audio controls
- Bluetooth technology
The Scion xB is powered by a 2.4-liter engine that produces 158 hp through a four-speed automatic transmission. Fuel conscious drivers can expect up to 28 mpg on the highway. The 2012 Scion xB was named a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Steve St. Angelo, executive vice president of Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc., said, “Safety is a core value that dates back to the foundation of our company. IIHS’ awards further recognize our commitment to helping protect drivers and passengers.”
