Expert Rating
Unavailable

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Overview

The tC is powered by a 180-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, paired with a six-speed manual transmission; a six-speed automatic with manual shift mode is optional, while an electronic power-assist steering system contributes to increased fuel efficiency. It is offered in one well-equipped trim level, with features that include a panorama sunroof, 18-inch aluminum wheels, air conditioning and cruise control, as well as power windows, mirrors and door locks. The tC's Pioneer sound system features HD Radio, Bluetooth audio streaming, MP3 capability and direct iPod connectivity, along with a regular auxiliary jack for other types of portable music devices. Standard safety equipment includes stability and traction control systems, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, eight airbags, tire pressure monitoring and a first aid kit. After a complete redesign last year, the Scion tC carries over with minimal changes for 2012. A new Pioneer sound system with Bluetooth audio streaming and HD Radio technology is standard. Additionally, a limited edition Release Series 7.0 will be offered, featuring exclusive High Voltage yellow paint, black 18-inch alloy wheels and a TRD body kit, as well as black and yellow seat upholstery and a Smart Key passive entry/start system.
