The xD went on sale during the 2008 MY while the Urban Cruiser went on sale the following model year after debuting at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.

The xD is a new model, so there is no reliability data. However, the xA, the xD's predecessor, had very good reliability.


The IIHS crash-tested an xD. Ratings were acceptable for frontal impact, good for side impact, and good for rear impact.

Unique AttributesEdit

The speedometer and tachometer share the same dial. Also, there is quite a bit of standard equipment for a subcompact, such as side curtain airbags, an advanced ABS system, active head restraints, a high-watt Pioneer stereo (shared with other Scions), and an iPod adapter. The xD also offers electronic stability control, which is a rarity in this class.


This section should include information on the interior's design, build quality, ergonomics, space (head and legroom, front and rear), features, stowage compartments and overall comfortability and livability. Add pictures wherever applicable and keep information in a third-person point of view.

Resale ValuesEdit

Since the xD is introduced for 2008, there are no resale values. But Toyota's resale values are usually high.


The driving position is a bit awkward and the ride is buzzy, but a major improvement over the xA.


Current Generation: (2008–present)Edit


The EU has an xD/iSt called the Toyota Urban Cruiser.
