2007 Honda Fit Sport vs. 2008 Scion xD | Comparison Test | Edmunds.com

Kids today, eh? The 2007 Honda Fit Sport and 2008 Scion xD are meant to grab the attention of a generation that knows how to play it loud. These cars are supposed to be all about watts, speaker count and iPod inputs. Yet they are both so sensible that you'd swear the coveted Gen-Y market was filled with aging no-bones consumers more interested in price and practicality than loud music. And in fact, older drivers are proving to be just as enthusiastic about sensible, stripped-down cars as younger drivers.

2012 Scion xD Test Drive and Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/scion/xd/2012/ The 2012 Scion xD is a car that has been marketed to the younger generation since its inception. But the xD is more than just a sub-compact teenager car. Instead the Scion xD is affordably priced, it gets solid fuel economy, it looks good, and comes packed with a ton of standard features and options; making it an appealing vehicle for a broad spectrum of car buyers. And the best part if the 2012 Scion xD only costs $15,345. The best thing about the Scion line-up is that all the vehicles they make are pretty hip and sporty. They all drive well and get excellent fuel economy. The second best thing about the Scion brand is that they are a no non-sense company. Meaning they offer one trim level per vehicle. So the Honda Accord or Ford F-150 for instance can have up to 30 different trim levels. Not so with the 2012 Scion xD. There is one model available with either a manual or automatic transmission. From there you can add on tons of options for the engine, suspension, interior, and exterior. Toyota Racing Development (TRD) makes tons of parts for the Scion xD which can be ordered directly through the dealership. Want a cool performance Exhaust or sport air filter? TRD makes those. Want to lower your ride and add stiffer suspension components? No problem as those can be bought and installed from any Scion dealership. The options for exterior, interior, and performance modifications are numerous. In the end you can have a very unique automobile right from the factory. The 2012 Scion xB is powered by a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 128 horsepower and 125 lb-ft. of torque. Not a whole lot but this is a sub-compact car and it does not take much to get it going. Also remember the xD is quite inexpensive so you cannot expect to have a high powered motor. The small engine makes for great fuel economy with the 2012 Scion xD netting 27 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. The Scion xD comes standard with many great features like air conditioning, power everything, cruise control, keyless entry, a Pioneer audio system, Bluetooth, and HD radio. The 2012 Scion xD is also very safe getting top ratings in 12 of the 13 IIHS categories.

2008 Honda Fit Sport 5-speed Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
Economy sub-compact vehicles had such a bad reputation in America for years, that all changed when Honda introduced their Fit for 2007. It was the first B-segment vehicle that offered a roomy cabin, generous cargo capabilities, and a fun-to-drive demeanor with the promise of reliability and resale value with the Honda badge. It was an instant hit with the company moving twice the amount it had anticipated. Just be sure you're okay with its relatively stiffer ride, noiser cabin, and somewhat awkward driving position.
