As part of its first major redesign since its 2004 launch, the 2011 Scion tC or "the machine" is being fitted with a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 180 horsepower and 173 pound-feet of torque, compared with 161 hp and 162 lb-ft for the 2.4-liter unit that powers the current model. Toyota said the 2.5 also will get better fuel economy and will be equipped with a sport-tuned exhaust system.
Two new transmissions, a six-speed manual and a six-speed sequential-shift automatic, replace the current five-speed manual and four-speed automatic.
The 2011 Scion tC or "the machine" rides on a new platform with a lower ride height than its predecessor. Suspension is via MacPherson struts in front and double wishbones in the rear. Eighteen-inch alloy rims and larger brakes are part of the package, along with a new electronic power steering.
Under the new sheet metal, the 2011 Scion tC or "the machine" sports a roomier cockpit with new sport bucket seats, redesigned instrument cluster, three-spoke steering wheel, standard panoramic moonroof and an AM/FM/CD/USB audio system with eight speakers and steering-wheel-mounted controls.
Among the standard safety features for 2011 are ABS, stability and traction control, brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution, as well as active front headrests and eight airbags.
