The all-new 2011 Scion tC arrives after seven years with the original. This second-generation tC rides on a new platform, keeping the same length but offering a bit more room. A new engine brings 180 horsepower and 173 pounds-feet of torque, with a quickened pace: from 0 to 60 in 7.6 seconds with the manual transmission.
The 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine uses the latest lightweight technology, with Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), roller rocker arms and a variable-induction intake manifold system that changes the length of the air-intake pipe to supply more torque on demand. Fuel mileage is improved by 3 mpg to an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in combined city and highway driving, and the emissions rating remains at ULEV II. Overall, there’s been a weight gain of about 100 pounds.
The 2011 Scion tC comes as one model, a sports coupe. The tC comes with an all-new 2.5-liter engine, and choice of two new transmissions. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, fabric upholstery, power everything, 18-inch alloy wheels, panoramic moonroof, folding sideview mirrors with LED turn signals, fabric sports seats with driver height adjustment, reclining 60/40 rear folding seats, tilt/telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, and 300-watt 8-speaker MP3 sound system.
