The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Honda CR-Z hybrid hatchback two-seater is the sole car in its segment, but other cars are sportier, more fuel-efficient, and carry more people and luggage. The 2016 Scion tC is a practical coupe with decent space and fuel economy, but power and performance are far from exciting.
