The second model in Scion ’s new Monogram Series set to be unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show is based on the recently revised tC . Just like with its FR-S brother, Scion will inject the new tC Monogram Series with lots of luxury features that will help draw higher-end buyers to the brand.
Of course, we would have preferred to see some more changes to the tC’s exterior, but Scion decided that only the interior needed most of the extra love to "provide a great price to go head-to-head with the competition and encourage more drivers to get excited about experiencing a Scion."
The new Scion tC Monogram Series is limited to 2,500 units this year and hits dealerships starting in February 2014. Prices start from $21,400 for the six-speed manual version and $22,400 for the six-speed sequential automatic version.

Scion tC Monogram Series in Detail
Buyers can order the new tC Monogram Series in any colored offered for the standard tC. The only exterior update of note is the color-keyed rear spoiler and standard HID headlamps with LED daytime running lights.
On the inside, the Monogram Series tC gets a little more additional standard features, including leather seats with Alcantara inserts and a Bespoke Premium Audio with navigation and connected services.
Other standard features include a Smart Key with push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control system, heated front seats and frameless rearview mirror.
Exceptional features will now come at even more exceptional prices. The 2014 Scion FR-S and tC gain premium features with the competitively priced, limited edition Monogram Series™ models on display for the first time at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Monogram Series vehicles will be available in dealerships starting in February.
“Through this limited edition Monogram Series, Scion brought together extra comforts and conveniences in the FR-S and tC without sacrificing value,” said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha. “By incorporating these features as standard for a limited time, we provide a great price to go head-to-head with the competition and encourage more drivers to get excited about experiencing a Scion.”
High-end features like Alcantara® inserts in the FR-S and navigation technology in both the FR-S and tC set the Monogram Series apart. Vehicles will be available in all standard body colors and both transmission options. Just 2,000 of these limited FR-S models and 2,500 tC models will be available this year.
