Scion Prices Special Edition 10 Series Models

Special series commemorates 10th anniversary

It’s Scion’s 10th anniversary, which means one thing: just like its second through ninth anniversary, it’s creating a special line of anniversary-edition models. While we’ve previously heard that they were on their way, the cars now carry finalized price tags.

Scion’s been creating Release Series and Series special-edition models for the past several years, and these 10 Series cars don’t stray from the trend. Some 10,000 units across five models will wear a special shade of “silver ignition” paint and offer special silver seat belts, as well as a Scion standard display audio unit with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, similar to units in some Toyotas. tC customers can also pay $1198 to add Scion’s “BeSpoke” premium audio system, which adds Aha radio/social networking functionality and GPS navigation to the touchscreen.

The notable members of the list are the tC and iQ, especially because the tC is refreshed for 2014 with a new face and a tweaked suspension, steering rack, and automatic transmission. The iQ is unchanged from last year. With the 10 Series packages, the silver cars will also receive projector-beam headlights, gray alloy wheels (18-inchers on the tC, 16-inchers on the iQ), special Scion badges that glow when the car is unlocked, and solar-powered illuminated shift knobs (for automatic transmission models). Scion adds a few floor mats to both cars, and a special side skirt package to the tC. The tC will start at $22,195 for a manual-transmission model and a $23,195 for an automatic-transmission model. The iQ starts at $18,605; all cars come with a continuously variable transmission.

Elsewhere around the Scion Series 10 stable, the FR-S adds dual-zone automatic climate control, 17-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights, and a frameless rear-view mirror, in addition to the typical combination of lit badges, floor mats, and illuminated shift knob (only on automatic models). That car will cost you $29,430 for an automatic or $28,180 for a manual.

As for the other two models, the xB and xD, it’s standard 10 Series fare: the xB features projector-beam headlights while the xD has multi-reflector halogen headlights, and bot hhave a selection of 16-inch gray wheels, lit badges, special floor mats, and a lit shift knob. The xD will run you $19,710 for an automatic and $18,910 for a manual; the xB costs $20,915 with an automatic and $19,965 with a manual.

The cars will reach Scion dealerships in June.
