Scion Unveils a New Dimension at the New York Auto Show with All-New 2011 iQ
and tC Production Models

2011 iQ and tC will join Canadian Scion line up

NEW YORK, March 31 /CNW/ - A New Dimension of Scion was unveiled today with two new production vehicles - the all-new 2011 iQ premium micro-subcompact and the second-generation 2011 tC sports coupe - at the New York International Auto Show. As part of the Canadian launch of Scion in September 2010, the 2011 tC is scheduled to arrive in dealerships later this fall, while the iQ will go on sale in early 2011.

"With the coming launch of Scion in Canada, we look forward to welcoming new members to the Toyota family. Trendsetting Canadian drivers have two more reasons to look forward to the official launch of Scion in Canada, with the all-new 2011 iQ and tC," said Larry Hutchinson, Director of Scion. "For urban drivers, the Scion iQ blends style, convenience and fun. It's big on innovative features and safety, but with a small footprint."

"The new tC is more aggressive and confidently styled, offering a fun-to-drive performance sports coupe experience," Hutchinson continued. "Featuring a new sport-tuned suspension and audio system, the tC will deliver exciting performance and entertainment, with more power and fuel efficiency."
