The price includes a $795 destination charge and reflects a $200 increase over the 2015 model.
The base price is for a Scion tC with a six-speed manual transmission.
The 2016 Scion tC with a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters starts at $21,330, including shipping.
Upgrades include a new standard audio system, a smart key with push-button start and standard rear windshield wiper.
Other improvements include new silver interior door handles, a center console tray cover and a leather-wrapped shift knob.
Edmunds says: Scion's top seller gets tweaked for the new model year, something that buyers in this category should appreciate.
