The Scion xD is a five-door hatchback subcompact marketed in the US by Japanese automaker Toyota beginning with the 2008 model year — replacing the xA. The Scion xD and the second generation xB were first shown to the public on February 8, 2007 at the Chicago Auto Show.[1] The new xD appeared at Scion showrooms in summer 2007.

The Scion xD comes standard with power locks, mirrors, and windows, and 16″ wheels and tires. The vehicle also has ABS, cruise control, a tire pressure monitoring system, and side curtain airbags as standard features. The only factory installed option is Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) with Traction Control (TRAC)[2].

For 2008, a choice from three new head units made by Pioneer are available. All sound systems feature six speakers and standard iPod connectivity. The base head unit has MP3, WMA, and AAC CD compatibility, and Scion’s SSP equalizer presets, as well as orange lighting. The Premium head unit has all the features of the base unit, but also has a small LCD that can display pictures and movies downloaded from Pioneer’s website in addition to the features on the base unit and has two different lighting schemes, blue and orange. A navigation system is also available. The SNS 100 system can play DVD movies in addition to GPS functionality and the features of the base system, aside from the backlit color choices.

The front-wheel-drive xD comes with the 2ZR-FE DOHC 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine with dual VVT-i that makes 128 bhp (95 kW) and 125 lb·ft (169 N·m) of torque. It can be mated to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic.
