2010 New York Auto Show: 2011 Scion tC

Follow Viknesh

Launched in 2004, the tC quickly became Scion’s top-selling model and brought in a new generation of younger car buyers to the brand. Six years later, the second-generation tC emerges with an aggressive new look, increased driving performance, and a more premium feel.

The car is fitted with a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine generating 180 horsepower, 19 horsepower more than the outgoing model. Peak torque is also up 11 pound-feet in the new 2011 model. In addition to increases in power, the new engine delivers an increase in fuel economy all while lowering emissions.

Two different transmissions available, a standard six-speed manual or a new six-speed automatic with sequential-shift.

Residing under the new sheet metal is a brand new platform with a MacPherson strut front-suspension and a double-wishbone rear-suspension that rides lower than the previous model. Other performance aspects include 18 inch alloy wheels with 16 inch disc brakes all ‘round.

Inside, there’s a three-spoke steering wheel that features a flat bottom, bucket seats and 60/40 split rear seats. A panoramic moonroof remains standard on the 2011 Scion tC.
