Model Highlights

The front-wheel-drive 2016 Scion tC comes in one trim level from the factory. Buyers can choose to equip it with a choice of a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed sequential sport automatic transmission. It includes paddle shifters and Dynamic Rev Management, which blips the throttle to make downshifts smoother and more efficient.

Power for the tC comes from a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with dual variable valve timing. The unit produces 180 hp and 173 ft-lb of torque, making plenty of power at the first stomp of the gas pedal. However, this power does not come at the cost of strong fuel economy, as the Scion tC is rated at 31 mpg on the highway.

The tC benefits from MacPherson front, while the rear utilizes an independent double- wishbone system. Steering is quick thanks to electronically assisted rack-and-pinion power steering.

Standard features include 18-inch gray metallic alloy wheels, power mirrors, windows and locks, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, sport seats, a 60/40 split folding rear seat, keyless entry, panoramic power moonroof, Bluetooth and an 8-speaker, touchscreen Pioneer audio system with USB port and iPod connectivity.

The accessories list is extensive and includes body graphics, rear spoiler, door sill accents, remote start, TRD performance accessories and BeSpoke premium audio.

Safety is paramount in the tC, with advanced front airbags, front side-mount airbags, front and rear side airbags, active headrests front and rear, a first aid kit and a tire pressure monitoring system.


Model News

The Scion TC remains essentially unchanged for 2016, but gains a few standard equipment upgrades including a rear window wiper, a proximity entry system and a leather shift knob.


Value Writeup

The 2016 Scion tC is a car designed and marketed toward younger buyers. It offers sporty performance while also rewarding drivers with decent fuel economy.

Like all Scions, the tC offers an extensive array of factory accessories means to encourage buyers to customize the vehicle to their liking. With a base price starting just under $20,000, the Scion tC is an affordable, stylish coupe that offers plenty of premium features and fun.
