Scion has released updated pricing and other details for its xB hatchback and sporty tC coupe as they enter model year 2012. Along with the typical incremental price increase, the models will receive new Pioneer audio systems meant to enhance their appeal to younger buyers.

The new stereos will replace last year's Pioneer units, which featured AM/FM radio, a CD player, an auxiliary input jack for digital media players and a USB port. The new sound system includes all of those features plus standard Bluetooth hands-free calling, Bluetooth streaming audio and HD Radio technology. Satellite radio remains a $449 option.

Also newly available for the 2012 tC and xB is an optional upgraded sound system. Featuring a larger, 5.8-inch LCD touch-screen display, the 340-watt system includes iTunes tagging and Pandora internet radio, as well as six RCA outputs to add external amplifiers.

While Scion has yet to release pricing for the upgraded stereo, it has announced updated pricing for the 2012 tC and xB. The starting price of the 2012 tC is up $300 over last year, to $18,575 plus destination. The 2012 xB's base price also increased $300, to $16,300. An automatic transmission will add $1,000 to the tC's bottom line and $950 to the xB. No updates have been announced for Scion's xD hatchback model, which will likely carry over into 2012 unchanged.

As previously reported, the new model year will also bring a sporty limited-edition version of the tC. Priced from $20,905 plus destination, the High Voltage Yellow tC Release Series 7.0 features a sporty body kit, black-painted wheels, unique interior accents and a push-button starter.

Although Scion sales have slumped lately due mostly to few new products, sales surged more than 14 percent in May. The recently redesigned tC is largely responsible for the bump, thanks to a 100 percent increase in sales over last year.
