Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t concern yourself with a stiff ride, although SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be a good bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide variety of options, in order to pick and choose which ones are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs may be all of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Scion XD. Coming off a redesign just a year ago, the 2020 Scion XD is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to choose from.
As has been the case for a time, you may get the 2020 Scion XD with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a better V6, or you will get the miserly 2020 Scion XD Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Scion XD is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Scion XD also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Scion XD with a little extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Scion XD offers a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you opt for one of many upper trim levels. There are lots of options to select from across the way.
The 2020 Scion XD is really as competent while they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content causes it to be supremely easy to drive. If you’re trying to find something with a little more class and space than the usual small sedan, the 2020 Scion XD might you need to be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Scion XD is the beds base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Scion XD Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You are able to consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features found on the upper trim levels can be included with the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL audio system coupled with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Scion XD stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is easy to fold down to fit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the front and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Scion XD features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s quite simple to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so your front seat need not be scooted entirely forward.
