Scion announced pricing for the 2009 xB and tC today, and if you want to get your hands on the love-it-or-hate-it toaster on wheels, you’ll have to pony up an extra $100 this year. The xB’s base price is now $16,370 (including shipping), and comes equipped with a five-speed manual as standard equipment. If you can’t stand swapping your own cogs, you can shell out another $950 for a four-speed automatic. The tC’s price remains the same as the 2008 model, starting at $17,620 with a five-speed manual and $18,420 for the four-speed auto ‘box. Sales of the xB begin this month and the “slightly tweaked” tC will arrive in May.
