Honda Civic Coupe vs. Scion tC: Interior Design and Style
There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that both the Honda Civic Coupe and the Scion tC are positioned to grab the attention of buyers looking for something sporty and affordable. Both vehicles succeed at this, but there’s a definite difference in the level of quality in the two vehicles that we’d like to draw your attention to.
The interior of the 2016 Scion tC may have gotten some recent updates, but it’s still quite outdated according to test drivers and reviewers alike. The joystick shift job and the out-of-reach center stack might be good for a gamer with unusually long arms (rejoice!), but it’s not great for the rest of us who just want to change the radio without a struggle.
On the other hand, the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe is a bit more mature, a bit more refined, and a bit more well-proportioned. The vehicle’s interior design is stylish and has a cockpit feel to it with its chrome detailing and upscale materials. It doesn’t feel like my first vehicle; it feels more like my forever vehicle—that is, until you have kids and upgrade to the Honda Odyssey.
2016 Scion tC vs. 2016 Honda Civic Coupe
When you’re researching the coupe body style, you’re really researching how powerful of a vehicle you can get within your budget. And we get it, power is important and performance is on the top of the list for many buyers of this body style. So let’s see how the Scion tC and the Civic Coupe compare.
In terms of power alone, the Civic Coupe and the tC are well-matched. The major point of difference between the two vehicles is in their suspension systems. If you’re new to cars in general, we’ll explain why that’s the case. The suspension system is what makes (or breaks) the vehicle’s ride quality, and it’s important for comfort, road noise, and overall performance.
The Scion tC is equipped with MacPherson strut front suspension and double wishbone rear suspension. It offers an okay ride quality, but you can definitely feel every pothole in the road ahead.
On the other hand, the 2016 Civic Coupe offers MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension. The difference is in that rear suspension, and the between the double wishbone and multi-link type is a noticeable difference.
