Scion xB Gets Audio UpgradePosted on April 16th, 2009
2010 model features 160-watt Pioneer head unit with no price increase
The Scion xB gets an audio upgrade for 2010: a 160-watt Pioneer head unit. Base MSRP remains the same: $15,750 for cars with the five-speed manual transmission, and $16,700 for the four-speed automatic. MSRP doesn’t include a $670 delivery charge.
USB and auxiliary ports allow owners to plug in iPods or MP3 players, and listen to them through the xB’s six Pioneer speakers. Music is controlled through the head-unit and steering-wheel mounted audio controls.
Scion is also offering a new Alpine premium unit that’s navigation and back-up camera ready. The 200-watt Alpine system includes a 4.3-inch thin film transfer screen, high-definition radio technology and a media expander. An available navigation unit uses the Alpine head unit for display. Navigation features include voice guidance, day and night screen modes, support in English, French and Spanish, and 200 available address book entries.
Both the Pioneer and Alpine systems are prewired for satellite radio, and have MP3, AAC and WMA capability. Both units also feature speed-sensitive volume.
All Scions come with standard power steering, windows and door locks, keyless entry, four-wheel antilock brakes, front, side and side curtain airbags, and a tilt steering wheel. Monospec pricing eliminates haggling at the dealership.
The 2010 models roll out later this month.
