2016 Scion tC

The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe didn’t cause the now-defunct Toyota youth brand to go out of business, since it just debuted. It might seem like it did, however, when you see how clearly superior the Honda Civic is to the 2016 Scion tC for your driving needs here in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area. Take a look at how they match up below, and you might understand why Toyota discontinued the Scion for good.

Power and Efficiency

The 2016 Scion tC has a 2.5L four-cylinder engine under the hood, which makes 179 hp. The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe can be had with a 1.5L turbocharged engine good for 174 hp. In testing by Motor Trend, the Scion tC took 7.6 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph speed, while in Car and Driver testing, the Honda Civic with the turbocharged 1.5L took only 6.8 seconds.

In terms of fuel economy, the Scion earns an uninspiring 23 mpg city/31 mpg highway/26 mpg combined rating from the EPA. The Honda Civic Coupe is capable of up to an EPA estimated 31 mpg city/41 mpg highway/35 mpg combined* with its 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder and continuously variable transmission.


The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe has officially earned the best possible 2016 Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, when equipped with the optional Honda Sensing system. It gets a ‘Superior’ rating in front collision prevention with the system, as well. The 2016 Scion tC earns the Top Safety Pick award, but it is not available with any front collision prevention system.


While the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe comes standard with features like a remote tailgate release and lock feature, automatic climate control, and a rearview camera, you won’t find any of those features on the 2016 Scion tC.


The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe provides more space than the 2016 Scion tC, with 91.0 cubic feet of cabin space, compared to the 88.4 cubic feet in the Scion.
