Besides showcasing the small 2011 iQ yesterday at the New York Auto Show, Scion also revealed the 2011 tC coupe model. This new generation promises to deliver a more aggressive package, designed to further attract even more the young audience.
In order to do this, a new 2.5-liter inline-four cylinder engine has been fitted, with power increasing as well, to 180 HP and 173 lb-ft of torque. For those keeping count, it’s a 19 HP and 11 lb-ft improvement over the ratings of the older 2.4-liter engine.
Expect a “sport-tuned” suspension system on the 2011 tC, as well as an electronically-assisted steering system. The aforementioned engine will be mated to either a six-speed automatic, with optional sequential shift, or a six-speed manual, replacing the older five-speed one. Scion expects the new tC to return a better fuel average, but no estimates were offered.
Besides the more aggressive styling, future 2011 tC owners will also get 18-inch wheels, bigger brakes and a flat-bottom steering wheel. An optional rear wing, as well as sun roof are also available for an extra price. You can check out the new Scion tC in the photo gallery below and the special ScionDimension web page, where all the info about the new models are available. Also, you can become a fan of the brand on Facebook.
