The 2014 Scion tC facelift has made its first public appearance this week at the New York Auto Show. The car has received a redesigned bonnet; updated headlights, new grilles and also LED accent lightning. At the back we can notice the LED taillights and a tweaked bumper sporting a center-mounted lower reflector and a black valance.
Inside there’s a new display audio system boasting a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, along with new seat upholstery. For extra money clients can opt for a more premium audio system which can access the Internet via a smartphone and also offers GPS capabilities.
Powering the 2014 Scion tC is a 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine rated at 179 hp (133 kW) linked as standard to a 6-speed manual transmission or to an optional revised 6-speed automatic gearbox which benefits from Dynamic Rev Management technology and promises to change gears faster than before. The car has also been fitted with a reworked suspension encompassing updated shock absorbers and a new stabilizer bar. The optimized power steering system should provide a “more engaging response.”
Slated to go on sale this June, pricing for the facelifted Scion tC will be published closer to the car’s market arrival.
