TORRANCE, Calif., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2013 Scion tC was honored
today as an overall Top 10 recipient in Kelley Blue Book's respected annual
2013 Best Resale Value Awards for its anticipated best sustained value after
five years of ownership. Automotive analysts used data from the Kelley Blue
Book^® Official Residual Value Guide to determine which new vehicles are
expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original list price five
years later.

"We are extremely proud that the Scion tC earned a 2013 Kelley Blue Book Best
Resale Value Award," said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha. "The Scion tC
offers great value and a fun driving experience at an affordable price with
the added benefit of a five-star overall crash test rating from the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration."

The sporty compact 2013 tC retails at $18,725 MSRP with manual transmission
and $19,725 MSRP with automatic transmission. Customers then have the option
to uniquely customize their vehicles with a variety of Scion accessories.
Scion MSRPs do not include a delivery, processing and handling (DPH) fee of
$755. The DPH fee for vehicles distributed by Southeast Toyota (SET) and Gulf
States Toyota (GST) may vary.

Kelley Blue Book established the Best Resale Value Awards in 2003. In addition
to the Scion tC award this year, Toyota earned top honors for the second year
in a row in the non-luxury brand category and was represented by eight other
models as top picks. For more information about the 2013 Best Resale Value
