When it comes to a compact coupe, there are a few performance expectations. The tC doesn’t really exceed, or disappoint with average speed and handling. The suspension is tight, and good steering feel gives this car the hunkered down personality of a sportier car, but its ability to move fast is questionable. There’s definitely more bark here than bite.
A practical machine with plenty of flare, the Scion tC RS 8.0 is a responsible choice for those who want to stand out.
