2014 Scion xD vs. 2015 Honda CR-Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Scion xD and the Honda CR-Z in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Scion xD as you will with the Honda CR-Z, 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). Based on MSRP, the Scion xD is clearly a better financial choice over the Honda CR-Z. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Scion xD will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Honda CR-Z.

Dimensions
The Scion xD is about the same width as the Honda CR-Z. The Scion xD is slightly shorter than the Honda CR-Z, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Scion xD transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda CR-Z.

Handling
The Scion xD has a larger turning radius than the Honda CR-Z, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Scion xD is somewhat more powerful than the Honda CR-Z.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Scion xD more than the Honda CR-Z, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Scion xD will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda CR-Z.

Warranty
The Scion xD comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda CR-Z.
