Default Scion xB 2008- Color Information and Topic List



Here is the color and spec chart for the US-Spec Scion xB from 2008-. If you see an error please post it here and I will correct the page and graphic ASAP. You can upload a photo of your car to the site by clicking on the above graphic, then clicking on the appropriate camera icon next to your color.

I will make updates on the chart within a day of any errors or additions posted. To confirm or add your color to the chart just post a photo or description of your car along with the model year (or production date) and the color code. The three-character color code can be found on the production information affixed to the car. On newer cars it is usually on a label in the driver's side door jamb. On older cars it is usually on a metal plate attached to the firewall near the back of the engine compartment.

The gray would've been nice too, since there's no more Camo. All that design effort into a car and brand and this is the best they can do for paint? Not even the Gold color we saw in Miami...

This post may make me a new xB owner when I get back to the states since I love blue and that blue is rather nice from the chart. I am hoping in person it is basically a little darker than Dodge's Intense Blue.

There may not be one you can look at in your current location. I checked Toyota Europe and it does not look like Nautical Blue Metallic is used there.

The Nautical Blue is also used on the US Yaris, RAV4 and 4Runner. I looked at a RAV (on a cloudy day) just to see the color and it is very dark. I thought it looked black with a blue tint to it. Sounds like it might be what you are looking for, but too dark for my taste.

Like some others, I am pretty disappointed in the color choices.
I would like the Speedway Blue used on the Tacomas. Or maybe even the Blizzard White Pearl from the RAV. Maybe I could wait for the 09.

"Not even the Gold color we saw in Miami..."
Maybe that will be the '08 Release series color. I saw alot of pics on this site. http://www.autoblog.com/photos/2008-scion-xb/. i kinda like that light blueish-grayish color.

nope.. very unlikely.

it is meant to be the prototype and the color is a FiveAxis exclusive.... you can try to copy it and have it painted yourself... but that's as far as anyone can get.

On the subject of colors:There is now a new brouchure at your Scion dealer featuring the new Xb and the Xd! and there is a small section of color swatches! For true viewing I suggest looking under flouresent light - the darker colors like Nautical Blue and Blackberry Crush look better - in sunlight they all look black!

I am really getting upset with the colors availible. IMHO:

Silver=boring, doesn't showcase the new curves, etc
Teal=Interesting in some pics, downright ugly in most
White=Not too bad, but still a basic white
Blackberry=Boring and too dark
Blue (seen on other Toyotas)=Beautiful on a sunny day on a clean car from less than 5 feet...like any other dark blue otherwise
Black=Prolly what I will end up with, but since it isn't quite black it may not match black wheels well

I have been shopping lots of other cars, and pretty much everything else I looked at had at least one color I really liked. The Fit has a nice vibrant blue, a true red, and that sweet metallic orange color. Even the Aveo has some nice colors!

Now, I assume the color palette sucks because they will be coming out with the RS cars eventually, but I don't think I could justify sitting around for another 8 months waiting for RS1 to come out on the remote chance that I like that color. All of the RS xb colors so far just didn't work for me, though I liked all of the tC release colors.

I'm a bit disappointed with the color choices...I was hoping to get something funky, but now I don't know which color I would get...

I will say that the color choices were a tad bland. I do like the blackberry crush. That is the color that I have on order.

I like the nautical blue. To me, it seems a little more blue than that dark blue on my 05 xB. I would like to get a tattoo for my car. Something interesting and fringe on the hatch. Any suggestions?

I have seen in person the teal and blackberry crush. I bought the blackberry crush and think the color is stunning.

I have already had comments on the color. It changes with the light.

Are these things still marketed as a blank canvas.....to be individualized both internally and externally? If so - the color can be viewed as a base to work from. When my 05 xB collected $4000 dollars of damage at the hand of a Dakota bumper I decided to break the camo up a bit. Nothing too flashy (I'm not in the target demographic). My body man was concerned with the color choices. My answer was something along the lines of "what difference does it make?....I already drive what most view as the ugliest car with the ugliest color!"
