Scion has unveiled the redesigned 2011 tC at the New York Auto Show.
Inspired by the FUSE concept, the tC boasts a lower stance, wider fender flares, a sleek grille, projector-beam headlamps, oddly-shaped taillights, and 18-inch aluminum wheels. Inside, the interior has a flat-bottom three-spoke steering wheel, split folding 60/40 rear seats, a panoramic moonroof, and an AM/FM/CD/USB audio system.
Riding on a new front-wheel drive platform, with a MacPherson strut front-suspension and a double-wishbone rear-suspension, the tC features 16-inch disc brakes and a performance-tuned electronic power-steering system.
Motivation is provided by a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine with 180 hp (134 kW / 183 PS) and 173 lb-ft (234 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a pair of new transmissions: a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic (the old tC had a four-speed automatic).
