Oh yeah, in all of the excitement to show off the Scion's two brothers yesterday, the all-new 2008 Scion xD and the re-styled 2008 Scion xB, everyone forgot about the new-for-2008 Scion brand sales leader, the tC. Well, let's rectify that little problem, because hey — Scion's issued a press release and some PR shots. The tC gets a bit of a newer style including an upper mesh grille, and rear tail lights with a styling that'll make sure you'll be confused as to whether you'll be looking at the front or the back of the bargain-basement budget b-segment car. The tC's still got the "Fun-To-Drive Performance" provided by the 2.4-liter four cylinder VVT engine capable of humming along at 161 hp and with 162 lb-ft of torque. This year's tC, along with it's more flashy brothers, also comes standard with Apple iPod connectivity and a head unit with iPod control. No word on whether the connector cable will provide the head unit information from the iPod via a digital link like Ford's Sync system or if it'll use an analog translation system like that found with GM's PAL system. Oh and it'll also have a standard mini-aux jack in case you've got a Zune or some other form of non-iPod music device. It also comes with a first aid kit in case your ears start to bleed from pumping your music through the Pioneer speakers a wee bit too loud. Gallery below and full press release after the jump.
