2013 Scion FR-S
2013 Scion FR-S

New For 2013

The FR-S was introduced in the spring of 2012 for model year 2013. It is nearly identical to the Subaru BRZ; the FR-S is slightly less expensive, but it has a bit less standard equipment.


The FR-S is the first-ever sports car for Scion, and it’s a radically different machine from the boxy subcompacts that the brand is best known for and is nothing like even the sporty tC coupe. The FR-S is the result of a collaboration with Subaru, and Subaru is selling a virtually identical car, the BRZ. Subaru also builds both versions, and the engine in the FR-S is a horizontally opposed Subaru four-cylinder. The benefit of a so-called boxer engine is its low overall height, which allows the FR-S to have a lower center of gravity. The 2.0-liter is good for 200 hp and comes with a six-speed stick or a six-speed automatic with shift paddles. In keeping with the pure sports car idea, the FR-S is rear-wheel drive and, equally important, is very light weight, at about 2750 pounds. The small two-plus-two does have rear seats, but they’re pretty cramped; the rear seatbacks do fold down to expand trunk space. Performance-wise, the FR-S is not a powerhouse, but it’s definitely quick. The car’s overarching character, however, comes from its beautifully balanced chassis, which makes for neutral handling. The FR-S is fun to drive in a way that no previous Scion has ever been and few other cars are.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags; traction and stability control; and ABS are standard.

Supercharged Scion FR-S Review
Ann Arbor, Michigan -- Since the Scion FR-S debuted, people have tried to milk more power out of it. FR-S owner Mark Sanew loved his car's balanced chassis and handsome bodywork but bemoaned its straight-line shortcomings. "I lost a drag race to a Ford F-250," he admits. Yeah, that hurts.

Report: Toyota GT 86 to Get More Power?
Although many were disappointed that the recent Subaru BRZ STI preview turned out to be a mild tuning upgrade rather than a full-on STI model, fans of the sports car twins may be able to turn to Toyota for a higher-powered version. This is exciting news for those who have expressed their concern that the standard car's 2.0-liter, 200-hp boxer four-cylinder is simply not enough power for the capable, balanced rear-wheel-drive chassis.
