Potential but lacks power!

2007 Scion tC 2dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Has one of the best designs out there with a nice sport coupe. Quality is overall nice and good value for the money. Engine seems outdated and suited more for trucks with high torque maximized at 4,000 rpm and overall poor mpg for this type of car. Engine seems to run at high RPM for cruising speeds, could use a 6th gear and a more refined clutch.Weight is relatively low but there are some blind spots which may get in the way. Its very fun to drive but performance is a bit low for a 2.4L engine compared to other cars such as the Audi and VW which get over 200hp and torque with 2L engines while receiving same or better mpg.

More efficient engine with more power and higher MPG (Perhaps Diesel Version 2?), reduce blind spots especially in the back, better clutch, 6th gear,
