NAPERVILLE, Ill., Dec. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In ten years of Scion production, the brand has met and overcome several challenges from almost every automaker on the planet. As a maker of almost exclusively compact cars, competition has become more fierce as designs and performance scores from across the compact car automotive segment begin to close in on one another, the need for innovation because all the more important. Nissan is among the top rivals to Scion, making the comparison of the 2014 Scion tC vs. the Nissan Altima Coupe, their top vehicle, a very important one. Scion of Naperville routinely does this type of opposition research to make sure their customers are as well informed as possible.
One of the chief differences between the 2014 Scion tC and the Nissan Altima Coupe is interior design. Scion has long hung their hat on being one of the most distinctive automotive manufacturers in business today. That theory is certainly on display with the design of the dashboard of the 2014 Scion tC with large racing inspired analogue gauges for the speedometer and tachometer. Also, the flat-bottom steering wheel and the center stack that is tilted toward the driver further enhances the racing-inspired design for the new Scion tC. The interior of the Altima is no doubt finished well, but lacks some of the flair that has gone into the design of its aforementioned competitor.
The biggest change for the 2014 Scion tC that helps it gain ground on the Nissan Altima Coupe is the addition of a six-speed automatic transmission with rev-matching downshifts. This new rev-matching technology allows the engine speed to stay largely unchanged throughout the range of gear changes. This leads to better low-end engine performance and increased fuel-economy. A new ultra-modern transmission combined with the inline four-cylinder engine of the 2014 Scion tC means that the zero-to-60 mph time is going beat that of the Nissan Altima Coupe with a similar powertrain setup.
