The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Not quite fast, and not quite nimble, the latest Scion tC is on its way to developing an interesting personality. The 2013 Honda Civic takes a step back in the right direction with an impressive feature set, a sophisticated new look, and much-improved refinement.
