There are a couple of other factors here. Toyota's VVTi is a similar technology to squeeze a bit more HP out of a given size motor, and it does work well, esp when you put your foot into it. Honda uses Interference engines, which allows for better valve timing, therby eeking out more HP from a given sized engine, but you pay the penalty if the belt breaks. Couple that with VTEC and you can make a fire-breathing monster out of a smaller engine.
Since the 2.4L in the Scion uses a chain, Toyota could have very easily gone to an Interference design and gotten some more HP out of the engine, but went the safe, reliable route instead. That is why Toyota has lagged behind Honda and Nissan in the horsepower wars; for a given model/design, Honda and Nissan models are higher performance than comparable Toyota models.
Now, as far as suspensions, my 240SX had a good suspension, the Supra has a good suspansion, but the tC runs like it's on rails!

Which you've somehow confused with Variable Valve Timing.

Which you've somehow confused with Dual Stage AC.
