Scion's sleek-looking sports coupe, the tC, debuted last year as the most powerful Scion offered, coming powered by the all-aluminum, 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) that's otherwise found in the Toyota Camry. Here, it generates 160 horsepower and can be mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. For added muscle, a, supercharger can be dealer-installed that boosts the car's output to nearly 200-horsepower. A four-wheel, fully independent suspension with a double-wishbone rear setup and 17-inch alloy wheels and Z-rated performance tires promise crisp handling. Four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and a driver's knee airbag come standard. While front-side and side-curtain airbags are the tC's only available factory options, as with the other models in Scion's line, buyers can accessorize the coupe from an eclectic list of dealer-installed items.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
