TCC’s Bottom Line
If you're looking for a two-seat hybrid hatchback coupe, the 2014 Honda CR-Z is your only choice--but many other small cars offer more driving fun, or higher fuel efficiency, often at equal cost. The 2014 Hyundai Veloster is more sporty coupe than sports car; but with available turbo power and a standout three-door design it isn't short on excitement and flair. 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.
