POLL: Would you Rather have a Honda CR-Z or a New Scion tC in Your Garage?

Pretty soon buyers right here in the States will have a few new picks when thinking about an low cost and green entry-stage coupe or hatch. No, no, we are not getting VW's Scirocco or Peugeot's RCZ every time soon (however the Hyundai Veloster is on its way). We're speakme approximately Honda's CR-Z hybrid that goes on sale right here in the States on August 24 and Toyota's all-new 2011 Scion tC that arrives in showrooms in early October.

Both motors are priced similar and are designed to attraction to a more youthful (or younger at heart) audience looking for an less expensive journey with a particularly sporty feel.

So, what can customers expect for putting their tough-earned cash in someone else's company pocket?

Honda CR-Z:

Two trim levels might be to be had at the CR-Z, base and EX. Pricing for the bottom version with a 6-velocity manny-tranny will begin at $19,950 (the CVT with paddle shifters is a $650 alternative and forces you to take a 5 lb-feet torque reduce), with wellknown features together with the 122-horsepower 1.Five-liter IMA fuel engine connected to an electric motor, 6 speakers, a radio/CD/USB system with audio jack, computerized climate manipulate, energy home windows, and sixteen-inch wheels.

Upgrade to the EX and also you get a higher-output stereo gadget with a subwoofer, Bluetooth, leather-wrapped guidance wheel, fog lights, HID headlamps, aluminum indoors bits, and an available Nav-gadget. Honda says fuel efficiency for the sporty hybrid will be a integrate 34 MPG for the manual, and 37 MPG for the CVT.

Scion tC:

Scion's 2011 2nd-gen tC drops in October with a new 2.Five liter 4-banger making one hundred eighty hp and 173 lb-ft (performance numbers have not yet been released), as well as a beginning fee of $18,995. The base model will include a 6-pace manual transmission (selecting an automated will price you $1,000).

Standard features on what Popular Mechanics calls a "compelling alternative to the Ford Mustang" 8 speakers, 18-inch rolling stock with 16-inch brakes, panoramic moonroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a rear seat. Fuel economy will be a combined 26 MPG for either transmission. No word yet on extra packages, but it's Scion, so customization is the name of the game.

Both vehicles function as cruise control, traction manage, strength door locks/home windows, and an audio enter jack / USB port as trendy.

So, what would you rather put in YOUR storage? A gas-efficient Honda hybrid posing as a sports car or Toyota's extra traditional but brawnier (hp-sensible) Scion tC?
