Scion just announced it will roll out an all-new Scion tC at the 2013 New York International Auto Show next Thursday.
There was no additional information on the car but we expect it to remain a more affordable, front-wheel-drive sports coupe to offset the more performance oriented Scion FR-S.
Scion tC sales are down 15% through the first two months of the year. There is slightly more competition lately in the compact coupe segment from the Hyundai Elantra and Kia Forte Koup along with Honda's Civic.
The latest version of the coupe is the 2013 Scion tC Release Series 8.0 shown above. There are currently 3,340 new tCs in Cars.com's national inventory, about the same number as new Hyundai Elantra coupes but roughly half the number of Honda Civic coupes.
Shoppers looking for a deal as Scion phases out the tC won't find one. Scion continues a no-haggle pricing policy on new cars.
