The Toyota bB is a small Wagon produced by the Toyota Motor Corporation based on the Toyota Vitz. 1.3 L and 1.5 L Straight-4 engines are available. While the box-shaped car was initially targeted towards Japan men in their twenties, it is also popular with women buyers as well. It was introduced in 2000, and in 2001, a model called bB "open deck" was released. It had an open deck that made it like a Coupe utility, similar to the Subaru Baja.

The 2nd generation bB was introduced as the music player in Dec 2005 and is equipped with 109hp 1.5L (Z Model) 3SZ-VE VVT-i engine or 92hp 1.3L (S Model) K3-VE VVT-i engine. 4WD is optional.

A 3rd generation bB has been introduced. It uses the same engine, but has interior and exterior revisions, as well as side-curtain airbags. 4WD is once again optional.

In United States, the first-generation version was sold under the Scion (car) brand as the "xB". The second generation xB is not based on the bB but was specifically designed by Toyota to appeal to American buyers.

The second-generation Toyota bB is the same car as the Daihatsu Materia. Only the manufacturer logo and name are different.
