2013 Scion xB

Funky box-on-wheels styling conceals a mediocre driving experience.

The xB doesn’t look at all like something I would enjoy driving, but I did indeed. Whereas the Nissan Cube, for better or for worse, drives exactly like it looks — that is, like a living room on roller skates — the xB feels like a sporty compact. The steering is tight, responsive, and has more weight than any Toyota product I can remember. The 2.4-liter engine happily winds up the rev range. I found myself chucking this box into corners, which must have looked rather funny to anyone behind me.
