The Scion tC headed into 2008 sporting fresh front and rear styling, an updated instrument panel, an attractive new seat fabric, and auxiliary audio input jack that became standard. The best-selling Scion tC always seemed best aligned with the brand's youth-targeted focus. After all, nothing quite attracts the kids like a two-door body style, racy 17-inch wheels and a fairly muscular engine. The tC easily has enough performance to be a fun ride. But then, the 2008 Scion tC was more about achieving a balanced set of virtues. Thanks to a well-tuned suspension, its willing handling peacefully coexists with compliant ride quality. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood has meatier low-end torque than smaller-engined competitors like the Honda Civic coupe and maintains decent fuel economy, too. The interior feels well-crafted, and it's rare for a sport coupe to have a rear seat that's so accommodating. The higher-grade base model adds include 17-inch alloy wheels, a moonroof, cruise control and one- touch up/down windows. This car, with 2-in-1 Carpet/All Weather Mats with Cargo mat, had an original MSRP of $18,591. The Scion tC comes from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine making 161 HP and 162 pound-feet of torque. It provides acceleration that's quite ample. Safety features are antilock disc brakes, a first aid kit, a driver knee airbag, side airbags for front occupants and full-length head curtain airbags. Government safety ratings of 5-star frontal for driver, 4-star for passenger, and 4-star for rollover. Though the Scion tC is the size of an average compact car, its longish 106.3-inch wheelbase provides ample legroom for passengers in all seats. Rear riders will also enjoy the split seat backs that can individually recline up to 45 degrees, and owners will appreciate the wide hatchback opening and 35 cubic feet of cargo space (with the rear seats folded). The interior is mostly lined with high-quality materials, and the standard Pioneer sound system is both crisp and powerful. The 2008 Scion tC features flat, composed cornering and a nimble feel. Its aggressive 17-inch wheels provide plenty of grip, and its brakes are strong and fade-free. Ride quality is firm, yet compliant enough to absorb most bumps and ruts on battered city streets. The 2.4-liter engine has a nearly equal supply of horsepower and torque, resulting in relatively strong pull from both low and high speeds.
