Best bargain cars at the New York auto show
2014 Scion tC
With Scion putting cars on the road for 10 years now, it's earned a solid reputation for offering bargain cars with personality. For 2014, its Scion tC is out to make an even bigger splash.
The exterior of the coupe boasts a sporty, aggressive new look, with a redesigned front and rear end as well as larger wheels. On the inside, the 2014 Scion tC has been upgraded with premium materials and new features, including a new 6.1-inch liquid-crystal-display touch screen; an automatic driver's side window; and an audio system with Bluetooth compatibility, HD Radio technology and steering wheel-mounted controls.
All models are powered by a 179-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Driving improvements over the previous model include an automatic transmission using dynamic rev management that shifts gears twice as fast as before, as well as handling enhancements and retuned electronic power steering.
