Model Highlights

The front-wheel-drive 2015 Scion tC comes in one trim level from the factory. Buyers can choose to equip it with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed sequential sport automatic transmission, which cuts shift times in half over the previous automatic unit, and includes paddle shifters and Dynamic Rev Management, which blips the throttle on downshifts.

Power for the tC comes from a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with dual variable valve timing. The unit produces 180 hp and 173 ft-lb of torque, making plenty of power at the first stomp of the gas. However, this power does not come at the cost of fuel economy, as the Scion tC is still rated at 31 mpg on the highway.

The tC benefits from MacPherson front, while the rear utilizes an independent double- wishbone system. Steering is quick thanks to electronically assisted rack-and-pinion power steering.

Standard features include 18-inch gray metallic alloy wheels, power mirrors, windows and locks, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, sport seats, a 60/40 split folding rear seat, keyless entry, panoramic power moonroof, Bluetooth and an 8-speaker, touchscreen Pioneer audio system with USB port and iPod connectivity.

The accessories list is extensive and includes body graphics, rear spoiler, door sill accents, remote start, TRD performance accessories and BeSpoke premium audio.

Safety is paramount in the tC, with advanced front airbags, front side-mount airbags, front and rear side airbags, active headrests front and rear, a first aid kit and a tire pressure monitoring system.

Model News

The Scion TC remains essentially unchanged for 2015. There are two new colors available, Blizzard Pearl and Cosmic Grey. The only other notable change is the addition of paddle shifters for the automatic transmission. Buyers who opt for the auto box will no longer have to compromise fun for convenience.

Value Writeup

The 2015 Scion tC is a car designed and marketed at younger buyers. It offers sporty performance while also rewarding drivers with decent fuel economy. The interior is second-to-none in terms of comfort and ergonomics and the extensive array of factory accessories means the tC is basically a blank canvas that Scion encourages buyers to customize in to their liking. With a base price under $20,000, the Scion tC is an affordable, stylish coupe that offers plenty of features and fun.

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
