Scion tC



  • I would say the speedometer will be in the normal position since the other cars the tC is based upon have it in that location.

    I hope so. Keep your fingers crossed!!

  • I suspect the tC will be much like the Toyota Allion. tml

    The two back ends are very similar.

    Kinda dull looking from the front. :-(

    Could we have the tC added to the "browse by vehicle" list on the side of the page? This topic might pick up some more traffic that way.

    Has Toyota confirmed yet if this car is going to be a traditional coupe or is it going to be some sort of 3-door hatchback type vehicle?

    I think it would be odd to add yet another hatchback to the lineup when the xA is already there. Young people like traditional coupes as well, so why not have a coupe in the lineup instead of some funky looking hatchback with a glass roof? You also have the Celica and Matrix as well. How many more of these cars do you need?

    I will make the suggestion. Unfortunately, I can't add that menu item myself.

    Looks good! Engine and specs remind me of the Japanese Corolla Levin/Sprinter Trueno twins. With all the TRD mods, this could be one hot seller!! Crisp, sharp lines too!! :)

    I'll get to see it on the 7th at Detroit. Will report back here.

    Looks plain up front and just like a Celica in back. May be the sportiest Scion, but to me the least appealing. Looks too much like every Celica since the late 80s.

    The bigger engine leaves more potential for aftermarket tinkering.

    And the conservative looks also leave a lot of room for aftermarket add-ons.

    Who knows... could be a winner.

    Blurb was very favorable. The styling is agreeable to me, and if they can price it well with all those standard features, the punchy (even when normally aspirated) and efficient 2.4L, I'm going to be taking a serious look at it. Love the trick rear seat and hidden hatch functionality.

    I like everything about the car from what I've seen ... except.... I drive 70 miles a day and I value fuel economy more than engine size. 22city /29highway isn't going to cut it for me and gas isn't getting any cheaper.

    I know I'm in the minority, but I'd rather have a smaller engine... a 1.7 @ 130hp would be fine for me.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see a hybrid version of the tc out very soon.

    Now Honda and Toyota are already talking about hybrids that not only have better fuel mileage, but also have more POWER (hp) than the conventional trim versions. The best of both worlds in one neat package!
  • Toyota isn't just talking about more power, they are going to deliver it. The RX 400H and the Highlander hybrid will have about 40 more HP than their normal counterparts.

    The Scion is rated at 22/29? Where are you getting that info? The 2.4L Camry with auto is rated at 23/32.....with manual, 24/33, Im pretty sure.

  • alpha01alpha01 Posts: 4,747
    I do see where the 22/29 came from... I assume youre looking at the PDF on the website. I wonder if those figures will change once the vehicle is officially rated by the EPA...I find it hard to believe that Toyota would market a small coupe with marginal numbers, below its mainstream family sedan. However, the tC is weighty... 2925 with a manual? Thats very close to a Solara coupe 2.4L 5M.... I'm wondering how much of this info has been printed properly. For example, if you look, the Passenger Volume is listed at 34.7 cubic feet, which is NOT EVEN POSSIBLE. Also, all accounts I have read, including the press release on, put this version of the 2.4L at 160hp and 163 torque. Why is it different in the PDF?

    Toyota needs to sweat the details in its promotional literature.
