Sporty — Love this car! It picks up very quickly and handles like a charm. Great rear seating. The only down side is the amount of blind spots. Low visibility. The cargo space is great, too. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Speed, looks

Cons: Backing, blind spots

Overall:

A Fun Little Head-turner — It's a solid car. If you want something cheap, but sporty, this is the car for you. It also gives you plenty of room to upgrade from the base model later, so you don't have to put a ton of money down for options you don't really need.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks great, runs great.

Cons: A bit small, and a bit sluggish. Not too "sporty" for a coupe.

2012 Scion tC RS 7.0 Review
chris says:
Love the Tc. Reliable sturdy chassis with a reliable Camry engine that can run well over 300k+ miles. The automatic is quick to downshift and strong. That being said with the coupe design and sharp edges of the body its a nice sporty daily car. Con is the cheap interior and certain kinds of the stock stereos.

Power Ranked 2012 Honda Civic Coupe Si worse.
"Though the Si has a few more ponies under the hood the factor of the Si having a Forced Induction 1.5L vs the Scion Tc Naturally Aspirated 2.5L makes it hard to compare. "
