Driving Impression

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

We found the 2.5-liter engine smooth and strong, while delivering adequate performance from its 179 horsepower. The paddle-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission is programmed to downshift with a rev-matching throttle blip.

The Scion tC can zoom from 0 to 60 in a relaxed 8.3 seconds, giving you time enough to yawn. If you want to go fast get the 6-speed manual, and you can hit 60 mph in 7.6 seconds, enough time to stifle a yawn between shifts.

The electric power steering feels good, but the tC lacks a sharp driving feel. The ride is good, and the standard 18-inch wheels and tires don’t make it too harsh. Big four-wheel disc brakes can slow the tC in a hurry.

Walk Around

Editor:

The Scion tC has a bit of attitude. It shows its Toyota roots, but looks like a family alien with its sharp angles, high shoulders, and creased corners. Its rear roofline shows some Nissan GT-R and Chevy Camaro. Its shoveled nose and tail come from the ’80s. It looks more masculine than it is. Perhaps tC stands for Toyota Celica and this Scion is essentially the modern Celica. Scion is a division of Toyota.

Interior Overview

Editor:

“”

Inside, it’s drab with low-end materials, yet nuanced by tube-like gauges and climate controls shaped like M&Ms. It’s snug in front and rear, low headroom everywhere, the sunroof makes it worse. It’s nice that the back seat reclines a bit, and front seat tilts forward easily.

Under the hatch, there’s room for several bags, with deep side bins.

Summary

Editor:

A handsome and reliable coupe for $20,000. It looks great from the outside and is fun to drive, but the drab interior is disappointing.

Model Lineup

The 2016 Scion tC comes with a choice of manual transmission ($19,385) or automatic ($20,535).

Scion is known for the many dealer options, kits and tweaks to personalize your tC.
