2012 Scion xD

Toyota announced Wednesday that the 2012 Scion xD will start with a price tag of $15,345 for a 5-speed manual transmission.

Prices are up $235 from last year, as this year’s model comes with more standard features, which include streaming audio, Bluetooth, and HD radio.

A six-speed sound system will also be included with the xD, that features a personalized welcome screen. A premium option is available that comes with a 5.8 inch touch-screen, all part of keeping the young buyers market appeal of the model.

No changes have been made to the body style or under the hood. Power still comes from a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine with dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) making 128 horsepower.

Other standard features will be keyless entry, a/c, tire-pressure monitoring, cruise control, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and a tilt steering wheel.

Interested? The Scion xD will be available in dealerships as of October.
