The freedom of modification and personalisation at reasonable prices and a consistent performance, Scion has made a name for itself through these qualities over the last 10 years in the global market. Its Scion tC 2015 has come up as a reliable and capable model and is an appealing two-door 4-seat coupe.


Although the best in the Scion family still remains the FR-S but the charm of tC 2015 cannot be undermined. The availability of a touch screen display, Bluetooth and a panoramic sunroof all comes as part of its standard features. The practical aspects of this entry level coupe include its roomy cabin- having a decently sized backseat- and a cargo area which is not only easily accessible but also the combination makes for a respectable storage out back and a nice rear seat real estate.

One can never be sure of a model being completely refined and every model similar to this Scion entrant comes with their fair shares of drawbacks. This tC 2015 model also is not as refined as some of its contemporary rivals and the exterior and part of interior feels on the touch to have been developed from cheap plastic and appears flimsy. The highway driving can also become an unpleasant experience with harsh road and wind noise filling the cabin space. It also comes without any rear view camera option thus suggesting a limited rearward visibility.
