Why the 2014 Scion tC Is Better than a Nissan Altima

So, the Nissan Altima Coupe is said to get the axe soon, but this doesn’t mean you need to get pity and get one now if you are searching for a sporty coupe... the Scion tC is a better package.

Scion of Naperville did all the research and highlighted what’s better in the Scion tC for you in its “Dare to Compare” study.

And one of the biggest differences between the two FWD coupes is their styling, especially the interior one where you will spend the whole time. For 2014, Scion updated the whole tC’s interior, fitting it with big race inspired analog gauges, a flat-bottomed leather-wrapped steering wheel and a center stack tilted towards the driver. The Altima’s interior is finished well, but it lacks that racing feeling the tC gives you when you’re behind the wheel.

And to really top it off, the new tC comes with a six-speed automatic transmission featuring rev-matching downshifting, allowing the engine speed to stay largely unchanged in gear changes, which translates into better low-end performance and increased fuel-economy. Not to mention the fact that it will reach zero-to-60 faster than the Altima.
