>> Well it sure looks a lot less like a milk crate, the new Sion XB, rounded shape and some really cool tech. Let's go inside. ^M00:00:10 [ Music ] ^M00:00:13 You're not going to mistake the inside of this XB for anything else. Once again, Sion delivers a really distinctive interior. What I want to show you is a variety of head units especially the one we've got. This isn't like anything else you've seen before either. A very unique button interface along the side. Now it's, it's mostly stylistic, I'll give you that. But you know blue buttons and these interesting shapes. All of that is grouped around a relatively familiar Toyota Lexus display and, and graphics engine. But it's not quite like anything we've seen before. The quality is good. It's a little jaggy, a tad pixilated, but that's a good looking screen as you'd expect. Because the Sion buyer is tech savvy. They can't goof on this. Even the most basic stereo that comes with this, the AM FM CD with iPod and Auks is Pioneer branded, six speakers and a couple of tweeters and then door speakers in each of the four doors. 160 watts, you know good overall system. And that's the audio for all three systems. But what you do when you step up is you go all the way to let's say this navigation rig, which does a couple of interesting things. It has a tilt function. When I hit the tilt button, I get a variety of menu items. One I can tilt the screen around to deal with glare and reflection. So that's one mode of tilt. Or I can go here and use the open or eject buttons to get to my dual disk slots. Let's check that out. If I hit DVD, it's going to flip the whole thing down and eject the DVD. Check out the dual mode DVD slot. DVD video for watching movies. It's also your DVD ROM for navigation data. So if you're watching a movie then your nav data is not in there. An interesting sacrifice that they've decided to make. Right above that you've got your audio drive for CDs. Redbook standard audio CDs, WMA and MP3 all in that slot right there. But check this out. Something we thought was aftermarket, but isn't. Let's go in the back. Now back here in a surprisingly head room capacious rear seat, if you're not reading your Sion magazine to find 50 ways to get your green on, maybe you want to watch a movie. You can do that with these factory available rear seat entertainment systems. Yeah, you don't normally expect this on a very inexpensive car, but they are available as an option of course. They have a manual pull over sort of a deal here. You put your DVD in the top loading slot and again these are independent systems. And you close that guy up, watch your movie right there. You also have an auxiliary input to play your portable into that. So you're video iPod for example. And of course sound comes off of two pair of included wireless headphones. The 08 XB starts at about 16300, base trim with manual transmission. Add a little over 900 if you want the automatic version. 2000 dollars will get you that nav system that plays all the different disks and DVD and CD playback. If you want the rear seat monitor and DVD system, that's 1600 more. Sat radio is 450, remote engine start 530. ^M00:03:07 [ Music ]
