I recently purchased my 2007 Scion tC, and have been pleasantly surprised. It is not as luxurious as the 2007 Civic, however, it is roomier, and gives the sense of being more "open." I loooove the cabin space, and pick up that this car has. It you drive slowly, you actually average 25-26 mpg on the city. For what I paid, I got a VERY good car! I highly recommend it!
The moonroof, spacious cabin, and steering wheel controls.
It should have slightly better gas mileage, and they could really change the speedometer/radio colors (it is a bright orange at night). I just turn the light down to very dim.
