Hi-Res Scion xD pics

Can you believe this thing is built on the Yaris platform? Not quite as car-like, but it looks incredibly more refined. Price guesstimates over at Scionlife.com seem to be around $14k. Release is this September.

Kinda reminds me of a Dodge Caliber. I don't like it. At all.

I have to agree. Extremely ugly. I'm also not a fan of the xB which this seems to be trying to lean towards. It's like the top half of the xA and the bottom half of the xB.

I'm really hoping the pics are making it seem bigger than it is. The last thing we need is another mini-SUV.

Don't worry, it's only 4" longer than the Yaris. The high belt line and hood make it look bigger. Those are 16" wheels (on the link... the pic I posted above is sporting 19s, I think...).

Here's some better info:

Well that's a relief. Not a fan of the styling myself, but at least it's not getting too much bigger than the cars they have out now.

and better options and accessaries...

yeah, don't worry guys,
the new scion might look like the caliber, but it's not at all similar to it...
afterall, the caliber is the same platform as the new lancer, which is a class bigger than the yaris platform scion...
however, the xd will be getting the 1.8 l engine... same amount as the base caliber... you never know, with the lighter body, the xd might out perform the upper class caliber...

better way to think of the xd... a buff up yaris...

I'm thinkin of crashing one with my buddies 89 RAM SC with a real "ramming bumper" at the side when it arrives at September, and then buy the engine and I'll buy a Yaris! to swap the xD engine with!

Or I can just get an xD or import a German Yaris TS here to the US, do a 2.0L bore then do a Turbo setup so I can eat those SRT-4s and stock EVOS alive !

Yeah, I really WANT to like it, but I'm having a hard time convincing myself. It certainly has some good aspects, but overall it's just really not very pretty.

Still better looking than the Fit (IMO), which is one of its primary targets.

I disagree. 300HP or not, it's still an SUV and thus fails. That and with gas projected to hit $3.50 a gallon this summer, it's double fail.
