2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo vs. 2013 Scion tC Release Series 8.0 Comparison
With their unique and bold styling as well as loud color options, here are
two cars that certainly aren't for everyone. Both the Scion tC and Hyundai
Veloster turbo are, however, more
accommodating than you might think thanks to excellent fuel economy,
functional cargo space and attractive pricing. They're not exactly 'Hot
Hatches' but are definitely sportier than the average, which is why at
AutoGuide.com we've pinned them 'Luke Warm Hatches.'

2011 Scion tC - High Speed Test Drive at New Hampshire Motor Speedway's Road Course
Akio Toyota challenged Toyota, Lexus, and Scion to make their vehicles more
fun to drive. This is part of an internal initiative to add excitement back
into each brand's product line and get back into making exciting products.
While this may sound like lip service to some enthusiasts, a lot of what's
done internally never sees the light of day, and for good reason; the car
industry is extremely competitive. Even more so after the rough times that
the industry has gone through in recent years.
Industry segments, like the sports car segment, have gone through some
pretty rough times as well. With a shrinking market for pure sports cars,
comes practical cars like the all-new, second generation, Scion tC.
The 2011 Scion tC is the first sporty car to be released after this
initiative, and marks the start of a new era for Toyota, Scion, and Lexus.
The Scion tC is a practical five passenger coupe that makes no compromises
in safety. 8 airbags, traction control, vehicle stability control, ABS
brakes, brake assist, and electronic brake force distribution? All for
under $20k in a sporty compact coupe? What a steal! And at speed, I was
amazed how the TRAC would actually simulate a limited-slip differential and
keep the inside tire from spinning. In my past experiences with racing the
first-gen tC, on slower corners the 2.4L had enough torque to break
traction with the inside tire that is unweighted when cornering.
And the fact that it has these systems means that it is a car that you can
drive through winters with relative ease. The TRAC and VSC will make a
night and day different in slippery conditions, and can be completely
turned off if you're in a situation where you're completely stuck.
Six-speed manual tC's sprint from 0-60 in 7.6 seconds - not bad for a car
that's priced under $20k.
It will remind you of all of the reasons you first got into cars; it just
does so many things right. Rolling through the gears with it's close ratio
6 speed, many of us were reminded of the Celica GT-S. When the tC launched,
the price point was so much lower than what the Celica could ever hope to
achieve that tC pretty much killed the Celica.
The Exhaust note reminded many of a
built version of our late 80's FWD Corollas that utilized the 1.6L 7 rib
4age 4 cylinders. We drove for days with the radio off just listening to
the music from under the hood.
But while we're on the topic of stereos, let's just say that the
2nd-generation tC has an AMAZING stereo. 300W standard? For those
audiophiles, the 340W Apline stereo upgrade adds RCA's so you can add an
external amp setup and subs. The one thing that's great about hatchbacks is
that you aren't stuffing subs in a sealed trunk. As long as you're careful
about sub placement with the glass, you'll end up with an amazing sounding
system with relatively low power requirements.
The snappy handling of the 2nd-generation reminded many of us of some of
the sportier cars Toyota produced over the years. Most of the testers have
driven some pretty modified cars, so it was amazing to us the level of
performance these newer sports cars can reach without the need for
sacrificing your daily drive to and from where you're headed. After a day
of testing, we developed a pretty thorough list of minor things we would do
to develop the chassis, but we were really awestruck with the potential of
this chassis; we're looking forward to seeing what the aftermarket will
come up with!
Part of what Scion does different are as simple as the fundamentals that
influence every decision that's made. At it's core, Scion marks Toyota's
commitment to shaking things up, and trying something that others may think
is a bit too different to dare try. Take this video for example; normally
this kind of internal testing doesn't see the light of day publicly, but
Scion's approach is totally different.
2011-2013 Scion tC review from Consumer Reports
Aimed at the youth market, the sporty Scion tC gives buyers lots of
features for the money. As far as small coupes go, it's relatively easy to
live with, but don't expect sports-car handling. Visit our website for more

2011 Scion tC Top Speed Run 0-134MPH
-= CLOSED COURSE - DO NOT ATTEMPT =- (This car is stock)
Decided to record my tC going as fast as it's little 4-banger could go. Now
that it's on video, I won't have to go that fast again ;)
This was not a time attack (hence the slow shifting) it was a top speed
Fastest I've gone was 134MPH - double checked via GPS.
In this video, the car goes 133MPH before shifting into 6th gear.
2014 Scion tC Review and Road Test
Join Alex L. Dykes as he takes a look at the 2014 Scion tC coupé. This is
this discount end of Scion's "two coupé" strategy in the USA. Is it worth
the money, and more importantly, which should you buy? The Scion FR-S or
the Scion tC?
2014 Scion tC Test Drive and Compact Car Video Review
When the Scion brand debuted as a 2004 model year, the goal was to target a
younger car buying crowd with affordable and stylish vehicles. Fast forward
almost a decade and Scion is still at the forefront with vehicles like the
FR-S and the tC. This 2014 Scion tC is in its 2nd generation and has
undergone a handful of changes most notably on the exterior. The base model
Scion tC with manual transmission starts at $19,200 and the top of the line
Anniversary Edition is $22,440.
Research the 2014 Scion tC
If you are looking for a cool new car that is styled like a sport car then
look no further than the 2014 Scion tC. Scion updated and restyled the tC
with a whole new front end consisting of: new hood, new lights, LED's, new
front fascia all in an effort to resemble the FR-S. The wheels are standard
18-inch machine-finished alloys. Out back the rear tail lights are LED and
the rear bumper is designed to also look like the FR-S.
The 2014 Scion tC is loaded and for only $20k you get a ton of great
features. First of all you get A/C, cruise control, power everything, and a
full panoramic sunroof. Now many cars may offer these items but where the
tC really jumps ahead is the inpressive 6.1-inch Pioneer audio system
Under the hood lives a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 179 horsepower and 172 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission options are a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed
automatic and fuel economy is 23 MPG in the City and 31 MPG on the highway
for both transmissions. The automatic has a system called Dynamic Rev
Management which makes the car a little more entertaining to drive. To make
the car even more fun, Scion has retuned the electric steering and the
The 2014 Scion tC is the perfect first car for the teenager or college
student for a couple of reasons.
1) The Scion tC starts at under $20k
2) The Scion tC is better equipped than the competition
3) The Scion tC retains its value exceptionally well
4) The Scion tC gets 31 MPG on the highway
5) The Scion tC is very reliable since its built with Toyota parts
6) The Scion tC gets a 5-start crash rating and top safety pick

This tC has a 2.5L DOHC 4 Cyl which makes 180 HP which is sent down to the
front wheels through a 6 speed auto. Pretty much the same combo from a
I've seen these plenty but never really sat inside to really get a feel of
them. So yeah I had high hopes as the 1st generation tC actually had a half
decent interior but I was extremely disappointed with the Interior which
IMO it's quite possible one of the worst interiors I've encountered in a
late model car recently. If only Toyota had carried over the same qualities
of the older tC, then there would be little to say bad about the car
