2014 Scion tC Recieves Rave Review

I recently had the opportunity to test drive the new 2014 Scion tC for a week and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this sporty little car.


I had never driven a Scion before, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. My first impression was “wow, that’s a good looking car.” The tC I received to test drive was red… anyone that knows me knows red is extremely bold for me. I always pick neutral colors when it comes to everything from my clothes, to my nail polish, to the paint on the exterior of my car. So I was kind of excited about stepping out of the box a bit with this sexy red car.

This “Absolutely Red” color is actually a new color option this year – a very nice addition I must say! Other new features that make the 2014 model more sexy are distinctive new headlamps, muscular grille bordered by LED accent lighting and new 18-inch alloy wheels with 225/45R18 tires. The wheels feature a premium dark gray finish, contrasted by eye-catching machined-spoke surfaces.


Another nice feature was the panoramic glass roof with front power tilt/slide moonroof that comes standard in the tC. I was also impressed with the audio in this vehicle. The Scion Standard Display Audio features a 6.1-inch LCD touchscreen, Bluetooth® compatibility, HD Radio™ technology and steering wheel-mounted controls.

As far as how the car actually drives… the sportier automatic transmission and enhanced dynamic handling make this 4-cylinder engine car a fun and smooth ride.

I have to say that the most impressive thing about the 2014 Scion tC for me was the gas mileage. I didn’t have to fill up once in the entire week I had the car and I drove over 500 miles during that time. The Scion tC has an estimated combined 26 miles per gallon.

The 2014 Scion tC is now available for at local dealers. Starting MSRP is $20,210 for the automatic transmission model and $19,210 for the manual transmission.
