2014 Scion tC Coupe Debuting at the New York Auto Show

Quote:
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.

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.


Looking forward to it.

Could use a nice little Turbo 2.0.

New powertrain, new interior and heavily refreshed styling would be nice...but I'm not holding my breath for all of that

I'm going to guess for the 2nd and 3rd from that list.

I'm not holding my breath for a turbo on the new TC when FR-S doesn't have one.

This first gen tC had a TRD supercharger as an option, but it was prohibitively expensive and only offered as an accessory. I believe total cost including installation was over $5000, which was >25% the cost of the car itself. Plus it didn't add much power. I think a 4 cylinder is simply too small for significant gains from a supercharger, turbo would be a much better option.

Don't get your hopes up. This is just a typical facelift. And remember how long the last tC went for.
