Scion tC Overview

The tC got a mild cosmetic freshening in 2014. Its 2.5-liter four-cylinder provides adequate acceleration. When mated to the six-speed automatic, it averaged a very good 27 mpg overall. The automatic now has a rev-matching feature. While it looks like a sporty coupe, the tC's handling is quite mundane. It's noisy and stiff riding, making it an unpleasant companion. On the plus side are the tC's hatchback versatility and particularly spacious rear seat. Interior fit and finish is unimpressive, and the thick rear roof pillars and small windows block outward visibility.
