You’re looking at one of the most underrated cars available today. This is the scowling new face of the 2014 Scion tC, an affordable, dependable, practical, and safe entry-level car.
Now, if you’re thinking that those are super exciting characteristics that explain why nobody pays much attention to the tC, you should also know that the 2014 tC is genuinely fun to drive, impressively equipped, and impossibly roomy inside. Plus, it can be upgraded with a bunch of performance and personalization parts from the Toyota Racing Development (TRD) catalog.
True, the tC is no FR-S, the vehicle currently responsible for making the brand’s pulse detectable by the young buyers that Scion covets. But the tC saves a whopping five grand compared to that rear-drive sports car, and is cheaper to insure. When you’re a Millennial who has finally landed a decent-paying gig with benefits but is still drowning in student loan debt, and who wants to finally move out of Mom and Dad’s house, that lower price tag makes all the difference in the world.
