The name tC does not fit in with its stablemates the xA, xB and xD because the name xC has already been taken by Volvo for its XC70 and XC90 models. According to Scion, tC stands for “Touring Coupe.”
One of the most fashionable, and popular, choices among young buyers is also quite practical. The tC isn’t a sports car, but it looks like one to some. It also has a roomy interior that feels luxurious and wouldn’t be out of place in a much more expensive car. Side-impact and side curtain airbags are now standard on the tC for 2008.
