Scion xB Series 10.0

Toyota promises that upgraded products for Scion are on the way, with the possibility of a redesigned xB coming soon. In the meantime, fans of the boxy hatchback have to make due with the new Release Series 10.0 special edition that is debuting at the 2014 New York Auto Show. The latest limited model puts an emphasis on technology with a wireless charging mat, backup camera, projected logos and a few interior changes.

All the Series 10.0 editions come in Electric Quartz, a pearlescent white color with green highlights, and their steel wheels are covered in Tungsten Gray caps. The exterior’s jade color scheme flows inside with the accent stitching on the seats and door panels. This xB is equipped with three projectors – one in the rear bumper displays the company’s logo on the ground, and two inside put “xB RS 10.0″ on the driver’s side and the car’s build number on the passenger side. (That’s kind of cool, honestly.) Smaller upgrades include piano black trim around the console, illuminated door sills and lit cup holders.

The Release 10.0 edition doesn’t see any mechanical changes and uses the same 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 158 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque as all other xBs, mated solely to a four-speed automatic transmission. Scion plans to build 1,500 Series 10.0 models with pricing starting at $20,420, plus a $755 destination charge. Sales begin this summer. Scroll down for the full details in the release.
