Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 7/16/2015 Kelly Pleskot

The second-generation Scion tC, which debuted for the 2011 model year and was refreshed in 2014, soldiers on for 2016 with just a few updates. Prices for the 2016 Scion tC begin at $20,180, or $200 more than last year's version.

Starting prices apply to tC models equipped with the six-speed manual transmission. Opting for the six-speed automatic brings total costs up to $21,330. Like last year, the Scion tC comes equipped with a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine producing 179 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque.

For 2016, the sports coupe receives a new standard audio system with a 7-inch Pioneer touchscreen, HD radio, Bluetooth hands-free capability and audio streaming, voice recognition, and the Aha Internet radio app. Smart Key with push-button start and a standard rear windshield wiper provide some basic conveniences that were missing from the lineup previously. Silver door handles, a new center console tray cover, and a leather-wrapped shift knob are also new for the 2016 model year. MotorTrend Image© Provided by MotorTrend MotorTrend Image

Big changes are coming to the neglected Scion brand in the coming months. The Scion tC arrives in dealerships this August. A month later, Scion will bring the new 2016 iA sedan and 2016 iM hatchback to market. These models are priced at $16,495 and $19,255, respectively.
