    The Scion xB is kinda neat, but the tC just looks like they cobbled together a bunch of other cars and made another car out of it.

    I think that the tC looks better than any of the other scion cars out there, however they all look like shit. Phuck Scion. :)

    i like the scion xB's... i see them everyday living here in los angeles along with ferrari's and porsches... the only difference is that all the scions here are BAD ASS!!!

    my budddy who works for Rev Hard has a white scion, carbon fiber [practically everything]... i cant remember if he had 18's or 19's? bad ass sound system, and the Rev Hard prototype Turbo kit for the scion....

    all i can say is bad ass... unfortunately i havent seen the scion TC

    okay, for all of you comparing it to a mazda 3...this car is only a coupe, 2drs. I know its kinda hard to tell from that small pic, but its really a nice car. comes with a 2.4 liter toyota vvti engine...how can you go wrong? I think its nice, to see it in full go to their website.

    the tC is pretty hot
    i like it more than anything honda is offering right now

    the lines are good

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    the wheels look good

    [​IMG]

    roof design is pretty hot

    [​IMG]

    seats have good bolstering and look supportive

    [​IMG]

    rear seats recline

    [​IMG]

    loaded right off the bat ... no need to haggle about options

    pretty good power... HP: 160@5700 rpm / Torque: 163@4000 rpm

    and it has full support from TRD (that means you can get some good performance mods straight from the factory / dealer and not void your waranty)

    so basicly what we have here is a small sporty car with plenty of potential to be made quite potent
    and its priced right around $19,000

    if i was looking for a NEW inexpensive fun car it would be pretty high on my list

    That back window kills the whole car. It somehow looks out of place. Too round maybe???

    could someone be a little too fucking picky? you remind me of Domes about women.

    That car looks fucking badass. 160 hp and 163 ft lbs of torque? thats comparable to the 2.5RS Subaru puts out, only without the AWD platform. I bet that car runs mid 15s if not slightly faster, Scion is doing it right...and I'm keeping my eye on this brand.

    :thumbsup: I like that. The interior looks good, and the body has good flowing lines.

    And to the above comment, the hatch is probably like that, so the people in the rear aren't having to angle their heads funny not to hit the glass, like they have to in an integra.
