The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Not quite fast, and not quite nimble, the latest Scion tC is on its way to developing an interesting personality. Whether or not you consider the exciting new ST performance model, the 2013 Ford Focus lineup is evidence that small cars don't have to feel so appliance-like.
