Besides the 2015 FR-S, Scion also unveiled the 2015 tC sports coupe and announced that both models will go on sale in early June. For the 2015MY, the Scion tC receives new colors but also a sporty feature that promises to bring on the summer fun. According to Scion, the tC receives two new colors: Cosmic Gray that replaces Classic Silver and Blizzard Pearl that replaces Super White.
Both colors are available for an additional $395 fee. Inside, the 2015 tC versions equipped with automatic transmission receive steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters that promises to enhance the driving experience.
If you already want to buy one, you have to know that the 2015 Scion tC equipped with a six-speed manual transmission has a starting price of $19,210, while the version featuring the six-speed automatic transmission and Dynamic Rev Management technology costs $20,360.
Pricing doesn’t include the delivery, processing and handling (DPH) fee of $755.
“We’re happy to bring the FR-S and tC into a new model year with features and prices that will excite our customers,” Scion Vice President Doug Murtha said. “These two siblings come ready for drivers to make them their own and conquer new roads wherever they go.”
Scion revealed the new 2014 tC sports coupe at the 2013 New York International Auto Show, showing off a sporty new look, upgraded interior, and an enhanced driving experience for the brand's top-selling vehicle.
The continuing success of the tC, which makes up 40 percent of all Scion sales, “challenged” designers to improve the 2014 sports coupe in ways that make it exciting to the drivers of today without affecting its core appeal, according to Doug Murtha, Scion vice president. As a result, we get a 2014 tC with a “sportier style and driving experience” that will make its buyers happy and will cement its spot in the market.
Powerful Look with New Outer Design and 18” Wheels
2014 Scion tC has a more powerful style, beginning from the front’s distinct new headlights and new bonnet that reaches down further to a more open, brawny grille with a tC logo embedded. The new treatments to both upper and lower grilles have LED accent lights surrounding them.
Under the rear bumper, an all-new black-out valance has FR-S styling, lowered-centre trim piece and perimeter reflectors; newly advanced LED tail lights finish it all. All-new 18” alloy wheels with 225/45R18 tyres bring a forceful character throughout to the vehicle's silhouette. Standard with the tC, the wheels have a lush dark grey finish, with an attractive machine-spoke surface for contrast.
