NAPERVILLE, Ill., Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Scion brand has spent a decade building and marketing uniquely styled vehicles for a uniquely styled audience. There have been a number of innovations along the way from subcompacts that will fit into just about any parking spot a crowded urban jungle has to offer all the way to one of the most affordable high-performance coupes to ever be released on American roads. For those looking for something in the middle, Scion of Naperville is happy to present the 2014 Scion tC; an aggressive-looking coupe with style and performance to match.

Starting with the refreshed exterior of the 2014 Scion tC, the team of designers started with the front fascia of the car. An expanded front air-intake paces the exterior changes for the 2014 tC redesign. The others elements include a more sculpted hood with more pronounced character lines. The wheels available on the new Scion tC also feature a more metropolitan look. They are certainly in line with contemporary design practices.

Mechanically, the new 2014 Scion tC also has been upgraded. The 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine turns out 179-horsepower and is now aided by a more advanced automatic transmission. The key change to the 2014 tC comes with the addition of rev-matching technology. Rev-matching allows for the engine to run at more consistent speeds while going through the progression of gear changes. This means that fuel-efficiency has been increased as has the performance of the engine. There is also a six-speed manual transmission that can be outfitted to the 2014 tC. Each gear-changer will result in the new tC recording an Environmental Protection Agency fuel-estimate of 23 miles per gallon in the city and 31 miles per gallon on the highway.
