Scion xB Lives Another Year

Despite rumors of the Scion xB's looming demise, it looks like the funky box will live another year. Toyota announced that the xB will return for model-year 2013 with lightly updated exterior styling and a slightly higher price.

The 2013 xB gets a revised front bumper and a tweaked interior, including new light-bronze metallic accents and new seat fabric. A BeSpoke Premium Audio system is a new option; Absolutely Red and Nautical Blue Metallic are new exterior colors. They replace Stingray Metallic and Elusive Blue Metallic.

The 2013 Scion xB will begin arriving in dealerships early next year; manual-transmission xBs will start at $16,800, models with an automatic at $17,750 (All numbers exclude destination charges, which were not available). Toyota says this is an increase of about $500 over model-year 2012 versions.

Toyota also plans to raise prices slightly on several other models for 2013. Gas-powered Camry sedans will start at $22,235, around $150 higher for 2013. The Camry Hybrid will see a similar increase, with a base price of $26,140. Prices for Toyota's tiny Prius c hybrid will go up around $130 for 2013, and the Highlander crossover will also see a $150 increase.
