2015 Scion tC : the time has come to have some fun

Joe Mendes | Published on March 23 2015

One of the halos of the Scion brand is the sporty tC, a small compact who’s design is unique and who has been quite popular since it first launched in the U.S.

Scion is for those who want to stand out. These are fun cars that are blast to drive down a winding road and that look like nothing else you will see on the market. Take the tC for example, it certainly does not look like a Corolla or other similar vehicles. Its rear end is short and aggressive, its front end is muscular, its roof line is sleek and its overall design is modern without being over the top.

A quick glance at the Scion lineup is enough to realize that we are not dealing with your standard automaker here. Every model in the Scion lineup is built around the idea that driving a car should be fun. Take for example the Scion FR-S, a rear-wheel drive hoot of a car that only wants to be pushed hard into a corner. With the tC, you get a front-wheel drive car, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less fun to drive on curvy section of a deserted road. The car is stable at speed and its handling is precise and always lets you know what is going on.

Starting at $ 21,210,the tC offers plenty of standard equipment including bucket seats, cruise control, an infotainment system with 6.1-inch touchscreen, air conditioning, and even a sunroof. The only real option you will find is the navigation system. Other than that, the tC is remarkably well-equipped.

Despite its sporty design, the Scion tC offers 417 liters of rear cargo space, making one very useful and practical coupe. The front seats offer plenty of leg and elbow room, also do a good job in keeping the driver firmly in place in tight turns while being comfortable. The rear seats can accommodate children without any issues, or adults if need be. The rear seats can also fold 60/40 to increase cargo room.

Under the hood, the Scion tC gets a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 179 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. Power is quite good, especially given the vehicle’s starting price. A six-speed manual is standard while a six-speed automatic is optional. Powerful, reliable, fun to drive, and stylish, the Scion tC is in a world of its own.
