2016 Scion tC Gains Standard Touchscreen Infotainment, Smart Key

Scion’s other coupe gets a refresh.

With the fast-approaching release of the Scion iM hatch and iA sedan models, Scion has turned to the rest of their lineup to update and refresh. For 2016, the popular Scion tC coupe receives a slew of minor refreshes and updates, involving changes made to the standard equipment.

On the inside, the 2016 Scion tC includes an all-new audio system, smart-key access with push-button start, and a new standard rear wiper blade. Little aesthetic touches have been added on the interior as well, including new silver door handles, center console tray cover, and a leather-wrapped shift knob.

The new audio system features a new seven-inch Pioneer touchscreen, with AM/FM/HD radio, voice recognition, Bluetooth, and the Aha app, which allows for increased audio streaming options.

All 2016 Scion tCs are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which pushes out 180 hp and 173 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels through either a six-speed manual transmission, or six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

The 2016 Scion TC starts at $20,180 for the manual transmission, and $21,330 for the automatic transmission, including destination. Interested buyers can head to Scion dealers starting in August to pick up the refreshed tC.
