Needed a safe vehicle, but also a cool vehicle, for a teenager who will be driving shortly. Had settled on a Mazda 3. Thankfully, the Mazda dealer low balled us on our trade. Good thing. Viewed a new TC after leaving Mazda dealer and immediately went to the nearest Scion dealer to take a closer look. Obviously, the teenager fell in love with the TC. Wife also fell for it. Have had it a bit and couldn't be more pleased. Good value for the money. I am over 50 and I love driving the vehicle.
Hip styling which makes daughter happy. Looks like a Celica which makes wife happy. Air bags, IPOD connection, dual moon roofs, styling. Daughter loves the color (blue) and the wheels.
For me, a larger instrument cluster which is simply an age thing.
