Scion tC receives Autobytel and AutoPacific 2012 Vehicle Satisfaction Award

The 2012 Scion tC recognised as the Top Rated Sporty Car in the 16th Annual Autobytel and AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards.

Autobytel and AutoPacific's Vehicle Satisfaction Award measures how satisfied an owner is with his or her new vehicle. New vehicle owners
provide input on 48 individual attributes that objectively measure the ownership experience such as driver’s seat comfort, power and acceleration, interior and exterior styling, cargo space/capacity, ease of getting in and out, and quietness inside the vehicle.

The second-generation tC, which was completely redesigned for the 2011 model year, features new styling, enhanced performance, and technologies that add to the driver’s experience. It remains a tremendous value with more power, increased fuel efficiency, superior driving dynamics, and more safety features than its predecessor.

For 2012, the tC sports coupe includes as standard equipment a new Pioneer audio system that features Bluetooth hands-free, Bluetooth streaming audio and HD Radio technology. It features a spirited 180 hp, 2.5-litre in-line four-cylinder engine mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

A new tC Release series 7.0 (tC RS 7.0) also debuted for model-year 2012. The tC RS 7.0 comes exclusively in high-voltage yellow exterior paint with contrasting black side view mirrors and black 18-inch alloy wheels. The aggressive exterior is further stylised with a TRD body kit that includes front and rear lower valences and side skirts. The front bumper incorporates a honeycomb lower grille that is unique to this Release series.
High-voltage Yellow accents make their way into the interior with color-tuned black and yellow seat fabric, leather wrapped steering wheel with yellow stitching and an individually numbered badge. The tC RS 7.0 features smart key, a convenient keyless entry system that unlocks the doors with a touch of the door handle. The system also includes a red TRD push-button start allowing the car to be started with the push of a button. The use of the smart key system is a first for Scion.
