2014 Scion tC Coupe Debuting at the New York Auto Show

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 3/21/2013 Zach Gale

The 2014 Scion tC coupe will debut at the 2013 New York auto show next week, the automaker has just announced. The current, second-generation tC was first introduced for the 2011 model year, and we're guessing the 2014 tC will represent more of a major refresh than a full redesign.

The front-drive Scion tC remains very important to the Scion brand, even with the new rear-drive FR-S stealing the spotlight. Though the boxy xB and FR-S have outsold the tC through the first two months of 2013, the tC contributes more sales than the iQ and xD put together. A redesigned 2014 Scion tC should help boost sales for those who just want a cool-looking coupe and can't afford the FR-S' $5000 price premium.

The current Scion tC is powered by a 180-hp 2.5-liter I-4 mated to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. In a Motor Trend comparison, a 2011 tC placed sixth, behind the Fiat 500, Hyundai Veloster, Volkswagen Beetle, Honda CR-Z, and Mini Cooper. The revised 2014 Scion tC, which debuts on March 28, may offer revised front styling with LED daytime running lights as well as retuned steering, a lightly retouched interior, and new wheel styles. Our comparison's 2011 tC test car is shown below.

So far, we only have one teaser image of the 2014 Scion tC, but it won't be long before the full car is revealed. Stick with Motor Trend for all your New York auto show updates.
