2016 Ford Transit Connect vs. 2015 Scion xB Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Transit Connect than the Scion xB. The Ford Transit Connect will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Scion xB.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Transit Connect as you will with the Scion xB, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Transit Connect will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Scion xB, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Transit Connect is much higher than that for the Scion xB.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Transit Connect is much wider than the Scion xB, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Transit Connect, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Scion xB.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Transit Connect transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Scion xB.

Handling
The Ford Transit Connect has a significantly larger turning radius than the Scion xB, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Transit Connect is somewhat more powerful than the Scion xB.

Utility
The Ford Transit Connect offers greater seating capacity than the Scion xB, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Ford Transit Connect comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Scion xB.
