The Scion FR-S has added a bit of excitement to the Scion lineup, as the rest of the lineup gets an updated audio head unit for the 2014 model year. All 2014 Scion models will now feature a standard 6.1-inch touchscreen audio head unit. The brand claims it is the only non-premium brand to offer the feature across its model lineup. Scion xB models built in August or later will add the new head unit as a running change.
The newly-standard Scion Display Audio System features HD Radio, Bluetooth hands-free calling and music streaming, and iPod connectivity.
Those willing to step up for a more full-featured audio option can get the Scion BeSpoke Premium Audio system featuring Aha. The BeSpoke system adds GPS navigation, social media integration, access to 30,000 free digital audio stations. The BeSpoke audio option adds $1198 to the bottom line.
Beyond the upgraded audio, the other major changes to the 2014 Scion lineup are mostly new color choices. The 2014 xD adds two two-tone color options, the first being Black Sand Pearl/Magnetic Gray Metallic and Classic Silver Metallic/Sparking Sea Metallic. The two-tone paint is a $500 option.
The iQ micro-compact gets a new special edition Monogram Series model which gets a two-tone color scheme of Black Currant Metallic/Classic Silver Metallic, color-keyed exterior mirrors and spoiler, and premium alloy wheels and iQ-logo floormats. Only 150 Monogram Series models will be made, with an MSRP of $17,275, including $755 destination.
Changes on the 2014 FR-S are the addition of sport knee cushions on the door panels and center console. Pricing for the 2014 Scion lineup is listed below. Pricing for the 2014 tC coupe and other iQ models was announced in May.
