Scion has introduced the 2014 tC at the New York Auto Show.
Looking odd and angular, the updated model has a new hood, restyled headlights and revised grilles with LED accent lighting. There's also LED taillights and a new rear bumper with a black valance and a center-mounted lower reflector.
Interior changes are limited but include new seat upholstery and a "Standard Display Audio" system that has a 6.1-inch touchscreen display. Customers can also order a BeSpoke Premium Audio system which has GPS navigation and the ability to access the internet via a smartphone.
Under the hood, the tC features a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 179 bhp (133 kW). It can be connected to a six-speed manual or an upgraded six-speed automatic transmission that has faster gear changes and Dynamic Rev Management technology.
On the handling front, the tC benefits from a retuned suspension with a new stabilizer bar and revised shock absorbers. There's also an optimized electronic power steering system that promises to deliver a "more engaging response."
The 2014 Scion tC will go on sale in June and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
