On sale now at Scion dealerships, the 2015 tC earned four stars in the front crashworthiness test, five stars in the side crashworthiness test and four stars in the rollover crashworthiness test.
The tC received "good" ratings in all Institute crash tests and an "acceptable" rating in the small overlap front crash test. The test is designed to replicate what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object like a tree or utility pole.
Standard safety equipment on the 2015 tC includes eight airbags, antilock brakes, stability control and traction control.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers should note that the 2015 Ford Fiesta earned a four-star overall safety rating from NHTSA. The 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI has not been rated.
