The Scion brand has been a success for Toyota since its launch. The trendy styling and Toyotas legendary reliability have driven much of this. However, one of the models, the xA, didn't fair very well. Seen as too much of a standard economy car, it seemed out of place with the flashiness of the remainder of the Scion brand. In 2007, the xA was replaced by the new xD, which now serves as the company's entry level model.Based on the Yaris platform, the xD is actually smaller in the cabin than the outgoing xA. Unfortunately, the xD doesn't do as well in one of the main metrics for measuring a compact car. That being fuel economy. The xD gets 33mpg EPA estimated highway rating. While that's not exactly a low rating, it certainly doesn't seem all that stellar given the diminutive size of the car and it relatively low performance.The power for the xD comes from a 128 HP and 125 ft. – lbs. of torque, 1.8 liter four cylinder driving either a five speed manual or a four speed automatic transmission.
