Pros: Small, efficient, cool, safe, roomy, cheap, capable, great stereo
Cons: A bit underpowered without the cold-air-intake and TRD muffler
Extremely practical despite its stylish image, the xB is a family sized car masquerading as a Mini. It's a joy to drive, a cinch to park, and an amazing bargain. Read More at Epinions.com
