2011 Scion tC
Hi, I'm Joe Wiesenfelder of cars.com. We’re getting our first look at the 2011 Scion tC, it's a redesign. It looks pretty different in a number of ways from the model that’s been out for six years. For one thing, the front end a much bigger lower grille, the head lights given a much more mature look than it had before. And some significant changes here from the roof line and it’s partly because the A-pillar here is blocked out. It gives that kind of a downward slant look. A new rear quarter window and the roof line seem to just deep down a bit, almost like a hint of as Sedan even though it's a hatchback. Now here on back the tail lights are more squared off than they were before and they protrude a bit. It's more in keeping with the direction on more recently redesign science including the XP.
Now the interior has changed quite a bit too, it's actually a point of contention among the editors. I don’t that it’s much of an improvement. Now six years ago when the car came out, I really like the quality of the interior and I drove people and when I tested it and they all thought that it was much more expensive car than it actually was. Now people say it looks dated, I'm in the new one here and I'm seeing a lot of different textures not necessarily all harmonious and not that much softer than what is the current model. So I'm not sold on it, the steering wheel though everyone seems to like. New steering wheel it has the flatten bottom similar to what you find in a Volkswagen GTI, pretty cool approach, makes a little bit easier to fit in here too.
Now the drive trains have been upgraded from a 2.4 liter four cylinder to a 2.5, horse power from 161 to 180. Now instead of a 4-speed automatic transmission as an option, it is now a six and still gets a 6-speed manual. And Scion says the city mileage is up to one mile per gallon. Now Scion says the cabin is larger that they don’t have dimensions yet. Overall the improvements are good. I’d like to see this car do better. I think it's kind of under performed in the market. Never quite live it up to the expectations that I have before it many the changes will help.
