2015 Scion tC
2015 Scion tC

New for 2015

The Scion tC remains largely unchanged for the 2015 model year but gains steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and adds Blizzard Pearl and Cosmic Gray as exterior color options.

Vehicle Overview

The Scion tC is a two-door coupe with seating for five passengers. The car rounds out the sporty Scion lineup and in cost, fits below the sporty two-seat FR-S. Summary
The 2015 Scion tC is powered by a 2.5-liter I-4 that produces 179 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. That four-cylinder engine can be paired with a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic, both driving the front wheels. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 23/31 mpg (city/highway) regardless of transmission choice, so there's no excuse to not get the manual. Cars such as the tC with sporting aspirations deserve all the help they can get, and we like the row-your-own option.
Notable features on the 2015 tC include leather-trimmed steering wheel, projector-beam headlights, panoramic power-tilt/slide moonroof, Bluetooth connectivity, smart stop assist, brake assist, and optional BeSpoke Premium Audio system.
The 2015 Scion tC received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars) and is considered a 2015 Top Safety Pick by the IIHS.

What We Think

The 2015 Scion tC was the first relatively sporty car in the Scion lineup, not to mention the greater Toyota portfolio at the time. With the introduction of the FR-S, the enthusiast crowd has a more serious contender. Think of the tC as an entry-level sporty coupe with more street-oriented daydreams.
In an Editor's Notebook review of a 2011 Scion tC, we said: “The bigger four-cylinder, which packs a real midrange wallop and is paired with a fantastic six-speed manual. The formerly lifeless steering is still way too light and slow, but now firms up nicely at highway speeds, where the tC is more confident and stable than just about anything in its price range save for a Mini Cooper.” Resist the urge to tick too many option boxes, and the tC remains a reasonable value, but with options it closes in on the Mini Hardtop Cooper S, Ford Fiesta ST, Honda Civic Si, and Volkswagen GTI, which occupy the mid-$20,000 range. Worth it? You be the judge, but the base tC comes reasonably well-equipped.
