2011 Scion tC Priced at $18,275
The manual transmission 2011 Scion tC will be starting at $18,275, while the automatic tC will run $19,275 (neither price includes Scion's $720 destination charge).
This price is up to $1,375 higher than the 2010 tC, depending on transmission. The tC comes in one trim with great standard features: power windows and locks, keyless entry, panoramic moonroof, air conditioning and cruise control.
Slightly larger outside and in, the new tC adds larger alloy wheels (18-inchers versus 17s), a telescoping leather steering wheel and an iPod/USB compatible stereo. A stronger drivetrain, more airbags and electronic stability are also included.
Competitors are the Kia Forte Koup SX or Honda's Civic coupe EX, and the Mazda3.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
