The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Scion tC coupe has an interesting personality, made a bit better this year, but it's standing in the shadow of the excellent FR-S sports car. The 2014 MINI Cooper is a fun, smart, and practical way to get around, without giving up its sporty, quirky side.
