    2005 Scion tC Overview

    Toyota's all-out attempt to capture America's Generation Y buyers of hot-looking, hot-performing small cars started last year with the simultaneous introductions of the Scion xA 5-door hatchback runabout and the xB microvan, but they are calling the new tC hatchback coupe the first true Scion.The tC is built on the same chassis as the Toyota Avensis, which is sold only in Europe, and uses the 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine used throughout the American Toyota lineup, but that doesn't mean this is just another Toyota.This little rocket was developed in only 13 months with a single purpose in mind.

    The Scion tC means to make mincemeat of the Honda Civic that is so popular with Gen Y drivers by offering a single, very well equipped model at a nearly unbeatable low price and a menu of options that will allow owners to built cars unique to their tastes.

    The engine is quiet, smooth, and plenty powerful.The steering, ride quality and handling are commendable.Braking is powerful, with ABS and electronic brake force distribution standard.This car is surprisingly quiet, the interior materials are first-rate, and attention to detail is evident.The bucket seats are comfortable and there's enough room to suit tall drivers.A 160-watt stereo is standard, and a full array of airbags is available.

    This is perhaps the best small Japanese coupe we have ever driven, at a price that is ridiculously low.
