The 2013 Scion XD receives additional driver and front passenger seat cushion airbags and improved one-step force limiters for the seat belts. The XD exterior is revised with smoked color headlight housing and an available two- tone exterior paint treatment that combines Blue Streak Metallic and Black Sand Pearl for the roof.
There is just one engine available for the XD which is a 128 horsepower, 1.8 liter four cylinder. A five speed manual transmission is standard and a four speed automatic optional. Optional TRD sport muffler, performance shocks, lowering springs, and rear sway bar can also be added.
The five person compartment includes a 60/40 split folding backseat that can recline and adjust forward and back. A storage well sits below the cargo floor. Other places to stash things include a dual-compartment glove box and a tray below the steering wheel.
The speedometer replaces a black gauge face with a white gauge face and revises the trim around the air conditioning control dials and cup holders. In other respects, it has a surprising amount of standard equipment, from air conditioning to power features to a new Pioneer sound system with HD radio, Bluetooth and a USB port for iPod connectivity.
