Scion's compact box is slightly more expensive for 2015, reflecting the fact that it adds an extremely modest amount of new equipment. The 2015 Scion xB starts at $17,890 (including a $770 destination charge) with a five-speed manual transmission, with prices rising to $18,840 with the optional four-speed automatic.

The only major change for the 2015 Scion xB is the addition of a backup camera as standard. Otherwise, the boxy hatchback continues as before, with a 2.4-liter inline-four engine providing 158 hp and 162 lb-ft, helping the xB post EPA figures of 22/28/24 mpg (city/highway/combined) with either transmission. Sixteen-inch steel wheels comes standard, with 16-, 17-, and 18-inch alloys optional. Other standard features include a 6.1-inch touchscreen radio, keyless entry, power windows, and Bluetooth.

This may be the last year for the Scion xB, as the small box is rumored to vanish soon as Scion revamps its lineup. Its replacement will be the production Scion iM hatchback that's set to debut at next year's New York auto show. (Scion is also expected to ditch the xD and replace it with a version of the next Toyota Yaris, which in turn will be based on the new Mazda 2 subcompact.) Today's Scion xB isn't a hugely popular model, selling just 15,103 units through the first 11 months of this year, lagging behind slow-selling Toyota models like the Lexus CT200h hybrid and GX luxury SUV.
