Wikicars, a place to share your automotive knowledge

The Scion tC is a compact sports coupe which was initially introduced by Toyota in 2004 as a concept vehicle under its recently created Scion brand name. Significantly more powerful than its sister vehicles, the xA and xB. the tC offers some extra punch under the hood and promises to appeal to those a bit put off by the xA ‘s size or the xB ‘s funky style.

Recent Changes

Cosmetically, very little has changed in the scion tC since its 2005 debut. In 2006, the audio components received a nice upgrade when controls were placed on the steering wheel and a new head unit with iPod connectivity became available (which became standard on later models). In addition, Toyota Racing Development (TRD) has made an optional supercharger available for the tC which boosts its horsepower from 161hp to a whopping 200hp; however the TRD supercharger has since been discontinued as a dealer option.

2006: Steering wheel-mounted audio controls and auxiliary jack are standard. Head unit with iPod capability is optional.

2007: Several minor upgrades to 2AZ-FE engine. Compression raised from 9.6:1 to 9.8:1, intake cam duration and lift increased, piston oil squirters added, rev limiter raised to 6600rpm. Rating changes from 160 to 161hp with no change in torque rating, however dyno testing indicates an increase of approximately 5hp.

Spec package is offered, characterized by steel wheels, fixed moonroof, and fewer interior amenities, at a discounted price.

2008: all tCs get projector headlights and updated taillights, front grill inserts, and standard iPod connectivity. The interior gets a few minor updates (including a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel) and the hatch now has an electric release. Seat-mounted side airbags and side curtain airbags are standard.

Navigation is available as an option.

2009: seat fabric is updated. Spec package is discontinued.
