2011 Scion tC Features

8.0
On Features
At a base price of just a hair under $19,000, the 2011 Scion tC hits almost all the notes you'd want to hear in this gadget-addled category. Standard gear includes power windows, locks and mirrors; cruise control; steering-wheel audio controls; XM satellite radio; tilt/telescope steering; and that sunroof, which lights up the cabin but comes with a flimsy pull-forward shade that slips out of its track more often than you'll have the patience to correct.

The glass roof also has a pop-up mesh wind deflector that doesn't really change the volume of noise generated by the raised panel, just the frequency.

As the tC is positioned toward younger, tech-savvy shoppers, its audio systems offer more connectivity than you'll find in other low-priced vehicles. The standard Pioneer audio system comes with iPod and USB connectivity, while the available Alpine Premium system comes with a 4.3-inch color touch screen, HD Radio, MX and RCA inputs, and subwoofer capability.

Compared to main rivals, the 2011 Scion tC is no longer a stunning deal. But its features list still doesn't disappoint.

As before, Scion tC buyers will have a long catalog of possible aftermarket appearance and performance upgrades, available through the dealership.
