Five-Point Inspection


The Scion tC is a mid-range model in the Scion stable and has arrived this year with a new special edition called the RS 8.0, which is the subject of this week’s Five-Point Inspection.

This special “Release Series” vehicle is limited to only 2,000 examples, and features a unique Fixe Axis Designed Body Kit as well as TRD-sourced lowering springs and exhaust. All the extra kit and exclusivity comes at $22,570 for the manual transmission model and $23,620 for the paddle-shifting automatic model. This represents a $3,090 increase over the regular Scion tC.
