quite fast see full Scion tC review
2007 2dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
The 2.4 liter 4 has decent torque as well as more than 20HP more than the Civic; it was one of few cars in its price class that would smoke the tires (the dealer may not appreciate this test method) see full Scion tC review

YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 2dr Hatch 161-horsepower 2.4L I4
