Per an article on MacNN, Scion has announced that its entire 2008 lineup will feature iPod connectivity.
The systems will incorporate a 160-watt Pioneer AM/FM/CD system complete with a control and readout that displays the track, artist and album into a one-line display. According to a spokesperson, “Connectivity is achieved by simply plugging the iPod into a port via a connector cable, providing outstanding sound quality through the car’s stereo system and constant power to the iPod. Music is controlled through the head unit and steering wheel audio controls. A standard mini-jack port also allows users to listen to their portable music collection through the tC’s Pioneer speakers.”
The upcoming Scion models will also feature rear head unit outputs that allow for external amplifiers to boost power to the front and rear speakers as well as the subwoofers.
The current pricing model for a base model 2007 Scion tC ranges from US$16,980 for one equipped with a manual transmission to US$17,780 for one equipped with an automatic transmission. Prices for the 2008 models have yet to be announced.
