Default Scion fr-s or a 2014 scion tc?

I have to decide which car I want and I'm having a hard time deciding. Basically if I get an Fr-s it would be for the style and exterior because interior wise, it's small and doesn't really have that many appealing features. The backseats are also VERY small.































The 2014 scion tc has a somewhat sporty look but it has a lot of room and multiple interior features.















You don't really see that many fr-s's around but I feel like everyone has a TC. What do you think I should get?

Yeah, it does seem like everyone has a tC. Then again, it IS Scion's most popular car. I think the FR-S LOOKS a lot better than the tC, but in terms of being practical, the tC wins. What if you got the special 10th anniversary tC? That way your car is different from the other tC's and you get more room!

FR-S is a drivers car built for the enthusiast. I don't know much about the tC but for sure it has better gas mileage, space, interior, etc.. However, they are completely different cars and are almost incomparable.































Simply because you're asking this question, I'm assuming you are not too much of an enthusiast (most enthusiast would never consider this comparison) so I think you would enjoy the tC more for it's practicality. I'm also assuming that you want a Scion and a coupe...that's the only other way I can see this comparison making sense. Of course, I could be totally wrong about my assumption.































Jumping deeper into the comparison...if you're considering a tC you should try a VW Golf or Mazda 3. Those are more comparable to the tC and I think they're both better cars all around.































Best thing is to sit in both cars and test drive, as always.































I hope that helps!

The 2014 scion tc has gone through several body changes from the 2013. I love my 2013 Tc and would really only like the FR-S to play around in occasionally. My TC fits passengers comfortably and I have a good bit of space if I need to transport anything.

The way I see it, you have to weigh out your options.































First start with budget: Can you fit the FR-S into your budget? Although asking this question you've probably already put this into perspective haha































weather and practicality: FRS is RWD - tC FWD ---- tC gets better gas mileage































I'm not sure how well the FRS will handle snow and rain but if you got beefy snow tires you should be somewhat okay depending on your commute































My tC is kind of scary in the snow, I have an '08 and it doesn't do that well but people have different opinions.































If you live in a sunny state then it's all about what modifications you want and where you live































If I lived in a sunny state/non-snowing state I would for sure go for the FR-S, although I like BRZ's more, but that's not relevant to this so I'll set that aside lol
