2016 Scion tC Review

Scion offers two coupes, the sporty and engaging rear-wheel drive FR-S, and the more practical front-drive tC. The FR-S may garner more excitement at dealership, but the tC is a competent liftback coupe that will better suit the needs of drivers who don't care about performance.
