The Scion FR-S has stolen the coupe spotlight from Scion’s other two-door, the tC. But the youth-oriented brand is bringing an updated tC to the New York auto show next week. For today’s Thread of the Day, we want to know what you think the 2014 Scion tC needs to once again grab enthusiasts’ attention.

The second-generation tC was introduced for the 2011 model year, which means the model coming to New York is most likely a refresh. The current car is front-wheel-drive, and makes 180 hp and 173 lb-ft of torque from a 2.5-liter I-4. In a 2011 comparo, we knocked it for its harsh ride, uncharacteristically sloppy handling, and slow, uncommunicative steering. The one thing the current tC has going for it is bang-for-buck factor, offering more power than many other vehicles in its price range.

Even if the next Scion tC addresses those drivability issues, though, can it captivate sport compact enthusiasts as it did when it was new? Besides its lower price and hatchback practicality, what does the tC offers Scion coupe shoppers that the more expensive FR-S doesn’t? Chime in below.
