2015 Honda CR-Z
View Inventory

Sporty, affordable, efficient cars are making something of a comeback in the United States. These days you have many different choices if you’re looking for a stylish, fun-to-drive car. Two unique choices aimed at young drivers in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area include the 2015 Honda CR-Z and the 2015 Scion tC. Both of these little hatchbacks offer dynamic performance, looks, and features, but they’re also very different. Let’s take a close look at how they compare!

Performance and Efficiency

The similarities between these two hatchbacks are only skin deep. The 2015 Honda CR-Z is a hybrid equipped with a 1.5L four-cylinder engine and electric motor that makes a combined 130 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque. The 2015 Scion tC makes more power with its 2.5L four-cylinder engine – 179 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque – but it’s worth noting that the Scion tC also weighs a lot more than the Honda CR-Z.

The CR-Z is also available with a dealer-installed supercharger package from Honda Performance Development that bumps power output up to 197 hp; that should be enough to make it significantly quicker than the tC.

Of course, it’s not just about power. Fuel economy is no doubt on your mind, also. The CR-Z is rated at up 36 mpg city/39 mpg highway/37 mpg combined by the EPA with the continuously variable transmission while the Scion tC is only rated at 23 mpg city/31 mpg highway/26 mpg combined*.

Features and Options

When shopping for a new car, you’re probably comparing the options list. Let’s take a look at features that the 2015 Honda CR-Z gets standard, which happen to be conspicuously lacking in the 2015 Scion tC.

These include:

  • Hill Start Assist and Variable Assisted Steering
  • Automatic Climate Control
  • A rearview camera
  • A stereo antitheft system
  • A rear wiper
  • Floor mats

None of those features come standard on the Scion tC. Plus, the Honda CR-Z offers more manufacturer estimated cargo volume and a superior NHTSA Rollover Safety Rating.
