Scion has officially unveiled the final pricing ladder for the redesigned 2014 Scion tC coupe which made its world debut earlier this year at the 2013 New York Auto Show and promises to bring new technology, performance, and styling to the tC model family when it arrives at a local Scion dealer near you later this month.
The newest iteration of the tC has been heavily updated for the 2014 model year and features new exterior styling that sheleves the previous generations bland lines for FR-S inspired cues, a sport tuned suspension and a more driver friendly six speed automatic transmission which all work together to increase the TC’s fun factor especially during spirited driving. In addition to the increased fun that can now be experienced from the tC, pricing for the model has also increased slightly for the 2014 model year with base models beginning at $19,210 (an increase of $485 versus the old model) when equipped with the six speed manual transmission. Meanwhile, tCs equipped with the optional six speed automatic transmission begin at a slightly higher $20,965 which is also a $485 bump in price versus last years model.
Buyers looking for a world class infotainment experience from their tC purchase will be pleased to hear that the company’s new “Scion BeSpoke Premium Audio System” can be added to either model for a reasonable $1,198. In addition to its built in navigation software, the system also comes equipped with the Aha service which provides buyers over 30,000 free radio stations (17 of them exclusive to Scion) as well as convenience features such as Yelp and TripAdvisor which work together to help buyers plan for long road trips or finding the best restaurant in town.
While the FR-S sports car (a favorite choice among us here at Autosavant) has taken over the tC’s role as the sportiest offering in the eccentric brand’s model lineup, the tC should still please buyers that want a balanced mix of performance and styling at a reasonable price while also offering buyers the latest in infotainment and other technology.
