The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Honda Civic drops almost all the economy-car pretense; in Touring trim, it could easily wear a premium label. The 2016 Scion tC is a practical coupe with decent space and fuel economy, but power and performance are far from exciting.
