Scion's tC coupe debuted at the 2013 New York Auto Show with mildly freshened exterior styling as well as upgraded materials and features inside; it'll debut at dealerships next month with a slightly higher price. The 2014 Scion tC starts at $19,965 for models with the six-speed manual and $20,965 for automatic-equipped versions (all prices include a $755 destination fee). That’s an increase of $485 over 2013 base models.
Outside, the front-wheel-drive coupe wears new grille and headlight designs as well as LED taillights. Inside, there's a new 6.1-inch touch-screen audio system. Newly optional is an upgraded Scion BeSpoke audio system with navigation and smartphone app compatibility for $1,198. Under the hood, the previous version's 180-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder returns; Scion says it's mated to a faster-shifting six-speed automatic transmission for 2014.
The automaker announced pricing for its tiny iQ hatchback, too. The 2014 version also gets the new 6.1-inch touch-screen audio system and is otherwise unchanged. It starts at $16,420, including destination; model-year 2013 versions started at $16,250. The minicar also goes on sale in June.
