Vehicle Overview

Scion's sporty five-seat coupe received a complete redesign for the 2011 model year and has seen few changes since then. Powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, the tC competes with coupe versions of compacts like the Honda Civic, Mini Cooper and Volkswagen Golf.
New for 2013
For 2013, a BeSpoke Premium stereo is available, which provides HD Radio, Bluetooth connectivity, iTunes tagging and Pandora internet radio via a connected iPhone. The stereo also works with the BeSpoke iPhone application that consolidates features like Facebook, Twitter and Yelp.
The tC's headlights recall the Kia Forte, but a large lower grille helps distinguish the tC as a Scion and visually grounds the car. Though the tC is a two-door hatchback, the shape of the rear side windows accentuates the dropoff in the roofline, providing a coupe profile. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Blacked-out A-pillars
  • Chrome exhaust tip

A front moonroof and a glass skylight over the backseat are standard. Between these and the fastback roofline, the cabin gets plenty of light, but shoppers will wish the rear window had a wiper. Interior features include:

  • Standard USB port and MP3 jack for connecting portable music players
  • Standard air conditioning 
  • Standard power windows, locks and side mirrors 
  • Standard tilt/telescoping leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio controls
  • Standard cruise control

Under the Hood
Mechanical features include:

  • 180-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine
  • Uses regular gas 
  • Standard six-speed manual transmission 
  • Optional six-speed automatic
  • Front-wheel drive

Standard safety features include:

  • Side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Side curtain airbags 
  • Front knee airbags 
  • Antilock brakes 
  • Electronic stability system and traction control
  • Active front head restraints
