2009 Scion tC Review

It’s a car that boasts as much personality as standard features. Every tC comes equipped with a 2.4 liter DOHC VVT I power plant seventeen inch alloys where the rubber hits the road a 160 watt Pioneer sound system and a panoramic moon roof so backseat drivers can even get in on the fun. Economical reliable safe. These three key elements of the tCare evident in virtually every aspect of the car. Take for example the main component of its passive collision protection system a supplemental restraint system that utilizes sensors in the front airbags to detect a frontal collision. And side curtain airbags for the front and rear seats are standard to protect you. Your personality is unique so why shouldn’t your car be the equally diverse. Your Scion has virtually unlimited possibilities to show off your “Youness”. Scion drivers are united by individually. Get to know a real character. Get in the 2009 Scion tC.
