Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Scion xB was introduced in the 2004 model year.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy’s head hit the roof rail, grab handle, and B-pillar.

Side crash test ratings can be compared across vehicle categories.

The Scion xB was introduced in the 2004 model year.

Injury measures

Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate serious skull fracture and/or brain injuries plus serious neck injuries would be likely in a crash of this severity. A fracture of the pelvis would also be likely, and rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries would be possible.

Passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Head protection

Driver — The dummy's head was hit by the intruding barrier, producing high head injury measures.

Passenger — The dummy's head was hit mainly by the window glass of the rear passenger door. The head was also hit by the window frame and the pillar behind the door. These impacts did not produce high head injury measures, but the head protection is inadequate.
