The finance and business forecasting experts at Kiplinger have named the Scion xB one of their 2011 cars with the best resale value. The xB was picked for the Under $20,000 category, estimating the car will retain 57% of its value after three years and 37% after five years. To win best-resale plaudits, the model had to first be selected as one of the top 25 vehicles in its category, then identified as having the highest three-year resale value.
Kiplinger had great things to say about the xB: “Scion xB keeps its rep as an edgy, hip vehicle that also offers scads of utility — and, as a bonus, a three-year resale value of 57% (head and shoulders above the rest of the category). Also in the xB toolbox: decent fuel economy, a capacious 22 cubic feet of cargo space and low insurance costs.”
