The Scion tC sits in a niche market with a few very interesting competitors.
On one end, the Honda Civic Si is less engaging than most performance coupes, and it just doesn't give us the thrills that it once did.
The MINI Cooper S is small, quirky, and fun to drive, but it can get expensive in a hurry.
The Hyundai Veloster Turbo is now as sporty as the car looks, if you're into asymmetrical cars.
And, there's the excellent Ford Focus ST, which is larger and more expensive than the tC.
If you're looking for a completely different flavor, try the Ford Mustang V-6, which is only price-competitive in its basest form.
