Press release

Scion announced today that it will be displaying its latest limited-production vehicle, the 2010 xB Release Series 7.0 (xB RS 7.0) in the Scion booth at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Dec. 2-13, 2009. The xB RS 7.0 will begin arriving in dealerships in December 2009.

Scion xB Release Series 7.0

The xB RS 7.0 comes fitted with a four-piece DAMD body kit including front and rear lower lips along with side skirts. The xB comes exclusively painted in a distinctive color appropriately named Murasaki, which means “purple” in Japanese.
 
One of the most distinctive features of the xB RS 7.0 is the TRD sport muffler that exits out the center of DAMD rear lip. The exhaust system features twin double-walled tips and is specifically designed in conjunction with the DAMD rear lip to give the xB a sporty appearance and a sound that can only be found on this particular Release Series. To complete the stylish exterior, the xB RS 7.0 is equipped with TRD lowering springs that bring the ride height down over an inch and offer sporty handling. A color-keyed rear spoiler will be available as an option.

Only 2,000 units of the xB RS 7.0 will be built, and each vehicle comes with a unique, individually numbered stainless-steel badge. The xB RS 7.0 model will carry a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $18,320 with a manual transmission, and $19,270 with an automatic transmission. A limited supply of the available color-matched rear spoiler will be available to xB RS 7.0 owners and carries a MSRP of $320, not including installation.

It does not look so beautiful but I think it will look better on the road. It has a good shape.

Thought that its very masculine especially the color fantastic.

Maybe you compare the looks of this xB on the Golf or Aveo but IMO, it will be better to be unique and as you know, a lot of hatchback cars are into rally race. I can live with this car I guess coz’ I
believe on the capability of this just as stated that it’s somewhat on the sporty line.

Doug, not a fanatic of this series. Well the notion of getting the driver comfortable was there but I was looking on the front body of this car and I don’t feel what’s sporty on this car as they’ve said on their press release. Although the price is there(affordable I mean), I wont buy that car.

I like the color because I rarely see something like it. Plus the shape, it is like a grown-up Beetle by Volkswagen, this is when you look on the side angle. By the way, may I know the purpose of the color-keyed rear spoiler?
