Expert Rating

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.

2013 Base 2dr Coupe
most popular
Price:   -  From $18,725
2013 Release Series 8.0 2dr Coupe Price:   -  From $21,815

Overview

Cars get power windows, locks with remote keyless entry, power mirrors, air conditioning, cruise control, a full-length panoramic sunroof, split-folding rear seats, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, 18-inch alloy wheels and an 8-speaker audio system with HD radio and Bluetooth streaming audio and a USB input. The Release Series 8.0 adds special alloy wheels with a lower ride height, paddle shifters on automatic cars and a body kit. Dealer-installed options include front fog lights, auto-dimming rearview mirror, cargo cover, anti-theft system and satellite radio.

Scion's own FR-S coupe is much more sporting to drive than the tC, thanks to more horsepower and a rear-wheel drive setup, but it's more expensive and the rear seats are useless compared to the tC's. The Kia Forte Koup also has stylish looks and comes extremely well equipped with superior fuel economy, but its base engine isn't as strong. The Hyundai Elantra Coupe is spacious inside and fuel efficient with better interior quality, but its engine lacks power compared to the tC and has a softer suspension. The Honda Civic Coupe is fuel efficient and offers features like satellite navigation, but interior fit and finish isn't great.
