The only entity that will remember the last hurrah of Scion is the Wikipedia encyclopedia. Another thing that could make some people remember Scion is that their communications manager thought that it would be appropriate to use “cool swag” and “Scion-ara” in the brand’s press release for the 2016 NYIAS.
Talk among yourselves, but “cool swag” in a release from a company that failed at being youth-oriented is as inappropriate as it gets. And what sort of individual would rub his chin and go: “Hmm, Scion-ara, what a smart sound-based wordplay.” Dear Scion, these kind of things are annoying. Sincerely, everyone.
These being said, care to guess how much is the tC Release Series 10.0 and what does it bring new to the table? It’s $23,190 for the 6-speed stick shift or $1,860 more than the standard entry-level model. The model year 2016 tC Release Series 10.0 comes exclusively in Barcelona Red.
Scion prides itself on bringing Kei Miura to help with the design of the rear lower and deck spoiler, rocker panels, and front lip spoiler. This tC also boasts black Scion badges and gloss black alloy wheels. As for the inside, the red and black theme continues. The only mods that matter in my opinion are the TRD dual exhaust system and TRD lowering springs. Other than those two additions, I can’t put my finger on anything remotely desirable about this thing. I wonder how much it will be worth in a decade or so.
