The 2014 Honda CR-Z vs. the 2014 Scion tC
Drivers near Easton and Raynham, when you want a stylish new hybrid car, you know to visit Silko Honda for the 2014 Honda CR-Z, right? Believe it or not, this little car is equal parts sports car and hybrid. There really are not many other vehicles on the road like it. The CR-Z gives you the sophistication, handling, and style of a sports car with the efficiency of a hybrid. We would say the CR-Z is in a class almost all to itself.
That said, some vehicles—like the 2014 Scion tC, which is manufactured by Toyota—do try to compete with Honda’s unique hybrid. Let’s see how Scion’s car stacks up.
If you’re looking at a hybrid car, there’s a pretty good chance you’re doing so for the fuel economy, and you should not be disappointed with the CR-Z. Of course, the tC gets 31 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city, which are not bad numbers for a sport coupe.
That said, the 2014 CR-Z with continuously variable transmission gets an EPA-estimated 39 mpg on the highway and 36 mpg in the city.* Whether you plan to do city or highway driving in your next car, the CR-Z comes out ahead of the Scion by a wide, wide margin.
Another added benefit of the CR-Z hybrid powertrain is the Honda gets access to electric torque of 127 lb-ft, responding much faster than the torque of a traditional engine.
The hybrid engine of Honda’s new sports car is just one of many things that puts it ahead of competing vehicles like the tC. The paddle shifters give the driver extra control over their vehicle, and features like automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and more all come standard on the CR-Z.
Scion does give drivers some comparable options to the CR-Z, but they are features that require upgrading and additional cost.
