Scion xB
Price: $15,750
Mileage: 28 mpg Hwy, 22 mpg City

IIHS Top Safety Pick

Now in its second generation, the Scion xB has grown into something more like a crossover SUV, minus the extra ground clearance and all-wheel-drive.

Some Scion fans mourned the loss of the older, more cube-shaped body, but the new form offers more useful interior space. Some odd interior elements - like the instrument cluster that sits between the driver and passenger instead of in front of the driver - have been retained. Don't worry. You'll get used to it.

The xB is also quieter and more powerful than the old version while fuel economy is still excellent, especially for a vehicle this useful. With more usable interior space and a more buttoned-down road feel, this a Scion that should appeal to a broader audience.
