so that 159 HP car is going to replace the Celica?

I think not.

It looks like an overweight Tiburon from the side. puke

Love the chrome even numbered spoke wheels, as well.

They should learn from Saturn: even spokes + chrome = crap

looks like an accord/rsx if you ask me...it has economy car written all over it.

that said...it is by FAR the best looking scion i have seen yet (concept or not). it's a step in a better direction.

If you ask me... the tC was intended to take place of the COROLLA, not the CELICA

There is nothing similar about the tC and the celica... ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!

plus.. this 2.4 engine could actually prove worthy with vvt-i. think of the nissan 240sx, only with valve timing! thumbsup let's hope this one actually gets aftermarket forced induction support to finally drive a nail through that srt-4 tongue

ditto.

but you have to agree w/isaac and how its dumb not to make a liftback for the younger generation..especially if you plan on discontinuing the celica.

But it's missing the Toyota emblem in the front and reminds me of a RSX.

Isaac, I couldnt agree with you more. Especially with the comparison to the corolla, not the celica. IMO, The Xc doesnt look that bad...but to replace the celica with it? That's just a bad idea. I just hope that toyota/scions high expectations of teens buying the scions, blow up in their face as they realise that a lot of teens will not go for it. I still do not get why toyota's getting rid of their 'sports cars' in america...Oh well, I just hope that toyota reaslises their mistake.

Oh please, that engine needs some serious tuning, with that much displacement it should have well over 220hp.

i duno why some of you dont like it, but i find it really nice. of course it aint no celica replacement, but this sets scion to a higher level class car. the car looks pretty good. the headlights kinda remind me of a bmw 5series headlights, lookin the car from the side makes the tail lights look like maxima, and front the front door all the way to the start of the trunk reminds me of a g35. i really like it, finally scion came up with something nice. too bad the interior looks a little weird. but remember its a car under 20,000

Not sure if it's just me, but it looks like a Skyline front with BMW 5 series front headlights or Altezza fronts and Tiburon tails. The body is aye, and 17" wheels as standard? It's ok. If THAT'S going to replace the Celica, then thumbsdown

Who's with me as far as the looks goes?

yeah...it looks nice, but too similar to the Corolla and RSX. And, it doesn't have a "sporty" look. But...good start for the Scion.

i have to admit, the looks are decent, but it looks just a little too much like a soapbar, 2900 lbs and only 160hp, i can already see it in my rearview Mirror. I think they came out with the tC because the xA did horrible, if they're trying to mimmick a celica they did a horrible job, i think the specs of that car is just disgusting. I really think it would be a great car for my mom, im gonna go tell her about it. Good thing shes replacing that caravan soon tongue

Wow...

I can't believe how many "this is nothing like a Celica" or "this thing weighs more than my Celi!" posts there are here.

Obviously this is not meant to replace the Celi, or attract the same audience as our cars. Think about the market segment that buys Sunfires or (non-evo) Lancers. Toyota has finally decided to offer a PRACTICAL sporty car. I'm actually glad they are, because it's going to open up a whole new market segment for the company.

That being said, I'm as PISSED as everyone else here that the Celi's are going away in the US. With the release of the tC it's obvious to me that the Scion project isn't a poor attempt to create sports cars- it's Toyota deciding to exit the sports car market at this time. thumbsdown

On the BRIGHT side for those of us who like import sports cars- Mazda seems to be starting to come back as an actual contender. The RX-8 is (in my view) a good equal to our cars. The 3 blows away our Corolla's. The Miata is supposedly being worked on by Mazdaspeed for release of a model this year thumbsup. Still nothing like the Supra out there for us right now, but nobody can predict the future.

it doesnt look too bad...but too much "economy" written all over it. This will sell but not to the younger generation as toyota is intending. definitely no celica replacement
