Scion has released pricing information for a number of models, the most important of which being the updated 2014 tC that debuted at the New York Auto Show in March. The cost of entry for the tweaked coupe is now $19,210 with the standard manual transmission, or $20,210 if you'd rather the car did the shift-work for you (*both prices exclude the $755 destination charge). These numbers represent an increase of $485 versus the 2013 model with either transmission.

We have yet to drive the refreshed tC, but Scion says it ought to provide a much more engaging experience from behind the wheel. Automatic-equipped models now enjoy faster shift times with dynamic rev matching, and regardless of transmission, the tC is said to have improved handling dynamics thanks to reworked shock absorbers, stabilizer bar hardware modifications and retuned electric power steering.

In addition to the obvious re-schnozzing of the tC, other updates for the 2014 model year include a new standard auto display, featuring a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, HD radio and steering wheel-mounted controls.

Elsewhere in the Scion lineup, the 2014 iQ microcar now starts at $15,655 – an increase of $160 – and the new Release Series 10 models have been given their MSRPs, as well. Read about all of them in Scion's official press blast below.

The Aha service also uses location–based services like Yelp and TripAdvisor and integrates most of the popular social media applications. The available feature is MSRP priced at $1,198.

2014 Scion iQ

The 2014 iQ carries over from its previous model year, with the addition of the new Scion Display Audio also available in the 2014 tC.

      That is one UGLY, UGLY Azz-tek of a car. It gets uglier with each gen. It's like they hired a 3rd grader to style it crayons or something.

      I own a 2005 tc, very shortly after they were first put on sale. It has been the definition of reliability and affordable style and I still really like it's look and feel. However, my wife and I agree that the 1st generation was the height of the tc's style, and each iteration coming out thereafter gets worse and worse...

        There's only been one iteration. Ok, Toyota messed up with this one. Maybe the Corolla Furia will provide some hint at the next generation tC.

          A lot of people don't care about speed, they just want a car that looks good to them. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Or the blind...

        \"it always makes me laugh when I see some douchebag on one of these \"murdered out.\" It\'s a chick car, fool!\" These kind of assumptions really make you seem like the douchebag.

        @Teleny411 Contrary to you, a lot of men don't need to own an agressive looking car to feel like a man.

      Its a entry level coupe with a 2.5 liter 4cyl. It has a standard touchscreen, 18\" rims, and a moonroof! Go to a Chevy, Ford, Honda or Nissan and ask for the same equipment and look at the price. Just for example, I built a Chevy Cruze 2LT with a Moonroof, It stickered for around $24,000. So before you comment please look at what you get for that price. Just saying!

        It\'s an alright design. It\'s nothing offensive. Kinda boring though.

      That\'s 19,209 dollars more than I would pay for this boxy and style-less \"sport coupe\".

      Why anyone would buy this over the FRS is beyond me. This thing is old as hell and now very ugly too. M

        Because it's cheaper at 19k vs. 25k, has more space and gets better fuel economy. It's a better commuter car. Not everyone needs a sports car. Also the FRS requires premium fuel. And the TC is more of a hatchback now thats what the EPA and other publications are calling it.

      What's up with this big fish mouth front end styling? Almost every manufacturer is doing this now. Don't like it!
