2011 Scion tC Sports Coupe Pricing Announced

Unveiled at the 2010 New York International Auto Show in April, the 2011 Scion tC sports coupe is now available at US dealerships with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $18,275 when equipped with a manual transmission, and $19,275 when equipped with an automatic transmission.

The delivery, processing and handling (DPH) fee for all Scion models is $720 and is not included in the MSRP. DPH fee for vehicles distributed by Southeast Toyota (SET) and Gulf States Toyota (GST) may vary.

Since the Scion brand is especially aimed at the young market, it is natural to expect multiple young-oriented features to be fitted inside the car. First of all, there's the standard AM/FM/CD/USB audio system with eight speakers plus steering-wheel mounted controls that allow the drivers to browse through multimedia settings.

Safety features include ABS, VSC, traction control, EBD and BA. Active front-headrests and eight airbags are also standard, including both driver and front-passenger knee airbags. The tC will also feature a button that allows the driver to turn off the VSC and/or the TRAC features. Additional safety features include a tire pressure monitoring system and newly adopted active front headrests.

The refined sports coupe is powered by a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine with dual VVT-i powerplant that generates 180 horsepower. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual unit plus a six-speed automatic.

"The all-new tC features styling that is both refined and aggressive, appealing to a sports coupe owner who wants to make a bold statement," said Jack Hollis, vice president of Scion. "When the tC first launched in 2004, it quickly became Scion's best selling vehicle. We took the already successful tC, added a long list of enhancements, and attached a price tag that makes it a tremendous value. The new tC will no doubt launch Scion into a whole new dimension."
