2017 Scion TC Redesign – Toyota is exterminating its Scion brand, and the Japanese automaker will start bidding it goodbye at the 2016 New York Car Show. It’s only suitable, considering the Scion brand debuted its very first principle cars 14 years back at the New York City Vehicle Program, so in such a way, it’s a bit poetic that it will indeed end where everything began.
As Scion’s most popular vehicle, the tC gets its last Launch Series version, developed in partnership with Kei Miura, the creator of Rocket Bunny. Finished in Barcelona Red, the sports car features an aero package designed by Miura including a front lip spoiler, rocker panels, back lower looter as well as a deck spoiler. Sorry, Rocket Bunny fans, this tC isn’t originating from the manufacturing facility with a widebody. Assisting contrast the red paint will be blacked-out Scion badges as well as gloss black alloy wheels.
Assisting boost handling as well as minimizing the center of gravity, TRD has outfitted the 2017 Scion TC Release Collection 10.0 with efficiency decreasing springs. The tC also has a throatier noise, thanks to a TRD performance double exhaust.

2017 Scion TC Exterior
The exterior of the TC Release Series 10.0. The body is finished in Barcelona Red as well as has actually been equipped with an aerodynamic package created by Kei Miura himself. To be truthful, I was anticipating to see upgraded bumpers and side skirts, yet instead, a tiny lip spoiler has actually been added to the front bumper and the side skirts. The Scion symbol listed below the hood and the tC emblem in the grille has actually been finished in a dark out gloss black. To the rear, the taillights have a slightly darker appearance, the Heir badge has been blacked out, as well as the rear fascia obtained the exact same “aerodynamic” lip therapy as the front and sides. The lip in the rear provides a diffuser-like appearance that sits well in between to two chrome exhaust suggestions. A tiny fin has been included in the deck lid, which is something that ought to have come standard on the tC to start with.

2017 Scion TC Engine
The Scion TC 10.0 has also been geared up with a TRD performance double exhaust system, which Scion says gives a “deeper, much more resonant, exhaust note.” Outside of these two things, the Scion TC 10.0 is bone stock, showing off a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that creates 179 horsepower as well as 172 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle can be had with a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed sequential automatic with paddle shifters. Even with the efficiency exhaust, I would hold my breath if you were anticipating much improvement performance-wise. In stock form the tC strikes 60 in 7.3 seconds with the guidebook or 7.8 with the automated. If anything, expect an enhancement of 0.1 seconds with either transmission.
