This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The Scion tC is a well-equipped yet affordable coupe that benefits from Toyota's attention to quality, durability and reliability. It is marketed towards the young first time buyer looking for a sporty and hip urban vehicle. The tC is powered by a 161-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, paired with either a five-speed manual or an optional four-speed automatic transmission. Standard safety features include seven airbags, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, tire pressure monitoring and a first aid kit. Other standard equipment includes a panorama sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels and direct iPod connectivity, along with a regular auxiliary jack for other types of portable music devices. The Scion tC carries over unchanged for 2009.
