The Scion tC hatchbacks is now available in two trim levels for 2007, with the base trim being the more upscale. While that sounds odd, the base tC is simply a more complete car, with less room left for personal customization. The Spec is left unfinished. The tC is a compact hatchback measuring 174 inches and weighing 2900 pounds. However, the interior is quite spacious. When the rear seats are folded, the tC offers 60 cubic feet of cargo space.
All tCs are powered by a 2.4 liter DOHC inline four cylinder engine, supported by Toyota's Variable Valve Timing + intelligence system. Toyota and Lexus have enjoyed the benefits of VVT-i for a decade, which include stronger engine output, higher fuel economy, and reduced emissions. The engine is paired with a five speed manual transmission, producing an EPA estimate of 23/30 mpg. The tC is supplied with 161 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque.
Serving as the high-end tC trim, the base finish includes cruise control, a power moon roof, one-touch power windows, 17-inch alloy wheels, a CD sound system with a portable device input jack, air conditioning, keyless entry, and folding/reclining rear seats. Side impact airbags are the only factory-installed option. Everything else happens at the dealership.
