Despite the 2015 Scion tC’s diminutive size, Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says the front-wheel-drive hatchback is a lot of car for the money. For around $20,000 with destination, the redesigned Toyota-made tC gets Avalon-like exterior styling cues
What Is the 2015 Scion tC?
What's New on the 2015 Scion tC?
Scion tC models with the available six-speed automatic transmission get steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles.
How Does the 2015 Scion tC Compare to Other Coupes?
Compared with coupe versions of the Civic or Forte, the Scion tC offers a range of desirable features for a reasonable price but isn't as fuel-efficient or as high in cabin quality. Though not as refined as the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, the Scion tC serves as a worthwhile option for drivers whose primary concern is value.
What Features in the 2015 Scion tC Are Most Important?
Under the hood of the Scion tC you'll find a 179-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine connected to a six-speed manual transmission. The manual can be swapped for a six-speed automatic.
Notable standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, LED taillights, a power moonroof, a 6.1-inch touchscreen audio system, front bucket seats, a split-folding rear seat and air conditioning. Significant options include 19-inch wheels, foglights, a spoiler, leather upholstery and a navigation system.
As required in all new vehicles from this year, the 2015 tC gets front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Front-seat side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags and knee airbags are also standard.
Should I Buy the 2015 Scion tC?
The Scion tC delivers impressive acceleration and decent handling, especially with the manual transmission. You'll get a lot of features and a large backseat for what you'll pay, but overall cabin quality is low. You may find it worthwhile to pay a little extra for a coupe with a more refined interior. High-tech safety features aren't available for the Scion tC, and gas mileage is only so-so.
