2012 Scion tC Features

8.0
Features

Priced from about $20,000, the Scion tC comes with a full well of standard features, some of which we might prefer on the options list, but most bundled together just as most buyers will like.

Every tC comes with standard cruise control; air conditioning; power windows, locks, and mirrors; an audio system with satellite radio and steering-wheel controls. The sunroof is something we'd drop if we could--it snips head room, and has a flimsy shade that slips off track more than the actual car does. It also has a wind deflector that seems to make more noise and doesn't cut down much of the air turbulence.

Scion stocks the tC well with standard features, and the parts book has some interesting upgrades.
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 also 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.

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