The fun-to-drive Scion tC brings youthful style and upscale refinement to the sporty subcompact segment and enters the 2010 model year with one new exterior color, Nautical Blue Metallic which replaces Blue Ribbon Metallic. tC continues to bring value to the Scion lineup with its generous standard content and EPA fuel economy estimates of 20 city/27 highway for the manual transmission and 21/29 for the automatic.
The tC’s front fascia is distinguished by an upper grille, lattice lower grille and projector-type low-beam headlights with black trim in front. Graceful lines flow from the headlights, across the beltline to the rear taillights with round combination lamps.
The tC delivers 161 horsepower with a 2.4-liter double overhead-cam four cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). As a low emissions vehicle, the tC features a five-speed manual transmission or an available electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission.
