In its second generation, the Scion tC has evolved more capable performance to go along with its svelte looks.

What's New for 2014

The tC features LED lights, refreshed styling for the interior and front fascia, and a standard audio system with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, and a new six-speed automatic transmission. Limited-production 10 Series and Monogram editions are also available.

Choosing your Scion tC

All tC models use a 179-horsepower2.5-liter inline-four engine paired with a six-speed manual or (optional) six-speed automatic transmission with a rev management system. The tC earns an EPA-estimated 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.

Although it's only offered in one trim level—theoretically—buyers can also choose from two special editions.


The Base tC is well-equipped with features like air conditioning, power windows and door locks, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, a panoramic sunroof and automatic headlights.

There are few options, which include an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a premium audio system with a touchscreen and voice-activated navigation.

Buyers can, however, personalize their tCs with an array of accessories that enhace the coupe's appearance or performance.


Scion will build only 2500 Monogram models, each with leather upholstery, heated seats, navigation and push-button start.

10 Series

A limited edition 10 Series model is also available. It’s swathed in silver hues—from exterior paint to seat belts. It also includes LED running lamps, dual-zone automatic climate control, and push-button start.
