The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
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 Hyundai Veloster dances the line between sporty coupe and sports car with features, fuel economy, impressive handling, and newfound turbo power.
