About Scion tC
The Scion tC is a small vehicle produced in two generations from 2004 to 2016. Both generations were produced in Japan. Production of the tC began in the United States in the 2005 model year and in Canada in the 2010 model year. The tC is Scion's best-selling model and accounts for nearly 40% of the brand's total sales. Toyota introduced the tC at the NAIAS in January 2004, and sales began in August 2004 as a 2005 model year. The tC is the spiritual successor to the Celica and is designed specifically for millennials. To this end, Toyota has introduced several standard features. A special package designed for the tuning market is available in only four colors. The Spec Pack will no longer be offered for the 2009 model year. It featured a fixed glass roof instead of an electrically adjustable glass roof. Cruise control and audio controls were removed from the steering wheel. The steering wheel is covered in urethane instead of leather.
It was Scion's best-selling model in 2006 when it sold more than 79,125 units, but sales declined in 2010. Only 15,204 units were sold. The second generation was introduced for the 2011 model year. All Scion tC vehicles come standard with all-wheel anti-lock brakes. The 2008 models come standard with driver's chest airbags, front and rear side airbags, and a driver's knee airbag. A passenger airbag is also available. The system controls airbag deployment in two stages depending on occupant weight. The car still has very good safety figures, a sunroof, a spacious interior, and a sloping body. Other changes include a longer wheelbase, larger brake discs, a more powerful engine, and electric power steering.

At the 2010 Abu Dhabi Motor Show, the Scion tC was introduced in the Middle East as the Toyota Zelas, a model that lacked the aggressive exterior shapes of the Scion tC. To celebrate the model's first year of sales, Scion is offering a limited run of 3,500 10 Series vehicles to commemorate the brand's 10th anniversary. The vehicle features a new silver paint job, silver seat belts, a solar-powered shifter. Scion LED lights illuminate when the vehicle is unlocked and a serial number icon on the interior. For the 2016 model year, the tC has minor changes, including a standard rear windshield wiper, new silver door handles in the cabin, a dash shelf in the center console, and a previously unavailable leather-wrapped shifter.
As with many Toyota models, plenty of upgrades are available from Toyota Racing Development's tuning store. TRD now produces parts such as racing springs and suspension springs suspension kits with brakes and brake kits.

Scion launched the Release series in late spring 2004. A limited number of existing vehicles were equipped with individually numbered badges, exclusive accessories, and other special features. The exterior was painted in vivid colors.
