The Bottom Line The 2011 Scion tC's tech, both cabin and drive train, lags behind similarly priced competition, but the car is a solid platform to upgrade. The 2013 Scion FR-S is a fun sports car, excellent in the turns but lacking big thrust, while the cabin tech upgrade looks intriguing for iPhone users. In features and driving character, the 2014 Mazda3 punches way above its humble economy-class roots, although a few bugs suggest the cabin tech needs refinement. Offering all the fuel economy and practical interior space of a Toyota Prius, the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid adds significant power and a more engaged driving experience.
