3/4 Front Glamour 2015 Scion tC
Scion tC Model Years

Overview

Research by Year
, Automotive Editor -

In 2004, Scion introduced the tC to the American market as a more attractive, sportier alternative to the xA and xB.

The tC's chassis was—and still is—borrowed from the Toyota Avensis, a four-door sedan that isn't available for sale in North America; the four-cylinder engine is the same as you'll find in the Toyota Camry. The ability to customize with factory or aftermarket accessories has made the tC a popular choice among the tuner crowd.

Currently in its second generation after a 2010 revision, the tC now boasts an output of 180 horsepower and 173 pound feet of torque, and comes with more standard features like 18-inch wheels, stability control and electrically-assisted power steering.

Scion tC Generations

2011 - 2015 Scion tC

3/4 Front Glamour 2015 Scion tC

Major changes included:

In 2011, Scion released the second-generation tC with a completely new body that gave the model a grown-up look with more defined body lines, revised headlights and new taillights. Under its hood, the new tC featured a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that pushed 180 horsepower and 173 pound-feet of torque through a standard six-speed manual to the front wheels -- a six-speed auto transmission was also available. In 2014, Scion updated the tC with cues taken from its resident sports car -- the FR-S . In 2014, the tC's 1.8-liter engine dropped to 179 horsepower, but the optional six-speed automatic received a rev-match feature for livelier downshifts.
