The Scion brand was originally made by Toyota to bring new life into the boring corporate image. Clearly, Toyota met its goal with Scion, which provides a number of fashionable and affordable cars that offer plenty of room to personalize. The 2016 Scion tC in particular is a four-seat hatchback coupe that is squarely in the middle of the brand's range. It's not as snappy as some of the other models, such as the Scion FR-S, but it's wholly capable in its own right. New for 2016 is a 7-inch touchscreen that comes standard with new upgrade options, including interior trim, rear windshield wipers and keyless ignition and entry.
There is just one trim level offered for the five-passenger 2016 Scion tC hatchback coupe. Whether you choose to use the manual or the automatic transmission, the tC should return 23/31/26 miles per gallon, making it a suitable choice for those who are conscious about their fuel economy in addition to the overall price point of the vehicle.
When taken on the road, the 2016 Scion tC is not the most exciting vehicle, especially when it is compared to the FR-S that operates on a rear-wheel drive setup. Nonetheless, it's a safe and well-weighted vehicle that steers just as precisely as you drive. Because the vehicle feels rather light on its tires, the tC remains plenty fun to drive. Broken pavement can get a little bumpy between the vibrations and jiggles, and the tire noise can be a little high, however.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Scion tC:
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
Example: Base Scion tC invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Note: All Scion tC Prices above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
