at the New York Auto Show and is celebrating the brand's tenth anniversary with limited edition models of the entire range.

with a blacked-out valance panel, LED taillights and new vertical reflectors. It rides on new 18in grey wheels.

Inside, the 2014 tC gets higher quality materials, automatic headlights, and a standard infotainment display with a 6.1in touch screen with Bluetooth. The stereo can be upgraded to the new BeSpoke Premium Audio stereo with navigation and app-connectivity.

“The sustained success of the tC, which accounts for 40 percent of all Scions ever sold, challenged designers to enhance the 2014 sports coupe in ways that keep it exciting to today’s drivers without losing its core appeal,” said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha.

Power comes from the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 179hp with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. The auto gearbox has been upgraded to shift faster and to blip the accelerator on downshifts. 

The chassis has been upgraded with higher rigidity with more spot welds, and the suspension has been retuned. The electric power steering has been tuned to be heavier and more engaging. 

The new tC will get two new colors Absolutely Red and Blue Streak Metallic.

Sales of the refreshed car will begin in June. 

Scion is also celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and it is releasing special 10 Series editions of all of its cars with a total of 10,000 units. All of the cars will come in an exclusive Silver Ignition color. The digital instrument display displays "10" as soon as the car has been started. They also get silver seat belts, lit shift lever, lit rear badge and unique wheels that vary among the models.

The only one with any special upgrades is the FR-S 10 Series that gets HID headlights with LED running lights, automatic climate control and a smart key with push-button start. 

The cars will go on sale in June.
