The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Scion FR-S is the perfect affordable sports car for many, with just enough in the way of creature comforts to keep it livable as a daily driver as well. The 2016 Scion tC is a practical coupe with decent space and fuel economy, but power and performance are far from exciting.
