dude you are going to think that this is total bs but... i was an original tC buyer until all 2006 tC in the DFW Texas area were sold out of M/T tCs. I went to a local dealership and looked at a xB that was repping the manny tranny. I took a look at it on the outside and i was like "ehh, its chic-ish. i hope it seriously had room for me and other things." (jtlyk= a few years back i wanted a lincoln towncar due to the roomy back seat for rear passengers. i hate having no leg room.) when I stepped into the car i was amazed. it was sooo much more roomy inside that it was percieved on the outside. i was like "....WTF?!?!?! this car redefines physics when the laws of physics say that matter takes up space, but 2 things can't take up the same space at the same time." after taking a test drive... i loved it. (here comes the freaky ****) when i stepped out my leg wasn't used to the low ride of the xB and i had to step out differently than I thought if was doing it in a different car.
Gettting back to my story...
When I got out, I turn around and was like how did that happen, it was like i was alice in wonderland. I felt like I was a diatomic atom in the xB, and when I got back to the non scion world aka RL it looked too small to have held all of that room.
go to your local dealer of xBs and check it out. Tell me that this isn't true, I triple dog dare you.
p.s. im 5'11 216.2 lbs(added more weight due to cake earlier)
My BestFriend is a BIG guy (weight and height) and he still can't believe how much room is in there... people that go in for the first time always say WOW, there's so much room! I remember when I test drove the car, everyone that got in had plenty of room!
