The Scion brand lived just enough to make two generations of the sport-compact vehicle, the tC. The two initials meant touring compact and it was intended as a car for the Y generation. In 2013, due to slow selling of the vehicle, the Scion tC received a facelift to bump the sales. A new bumper appeared. It was inspired by the design of the FR-S and hoped for better sales. The new front bumper featured a big center lower grille and two side-scoops for venting the brake discs. Along came the 18” light-alloy-wheels, body-kit, a sport tuned suspension, and a short-shifter. Inside, the standard infotainment system featured a touchscreen display. On top of that, new LED taillights were installed. Under the bodywork was the same Toyota Avensis platform and under the hood was the 2.5-liter gasoline engine from the Toyota Camry, which offered 180 hp. The transmission was either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. The stick version was able to do a 0 to 97 kph (0-60 mph) sprint in 6.5 seconds, while the automatic sibling was almost one second slower. A special edition with special color and few gimmicks inside were meant to make the car more attractive. But the car didn't have a long life. In 2016, the Scion brand was axed since the sales didn't match the expectations.
