Scion said that the 2014 tC two-door model is built on a front-wheel-drive platform and that it’s likely to still be powered by a 180-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The tC won’t get significant changes. It will receive several styling updates inside and out. So far, Toyota has revealed that the 2014 tC will make its debut on March 28 at its scheduled press conference held at the 2013 New York Auto Show.
The second-generation tC was displayed at the 2010 New York show as a 2011 model year vehicle. In 2012, the tC was the top-selling model of Scion, with a 3,000-lead over the No. 2 model, the xB.
Scion made an attempt to sustain the freshness of the tC with several limited-edition models. But sales have fallen since the more expensive but significantly more performance-oriented FR-S arrived in 2012.
For the first two months this year, tC sales have fallen by 15% as the FR-S has taken a small lead as Scion’s top-selling model.
