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.

Overview

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.

Safety

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

You'll like:

  • Light and lively
  • True sports car experience
  • Ultraresponsive handling

You won't like:

  • Cramped rear seats
  • Tiny trunk
  • Boxer engine thrum

Scion FRS 2013 Profile
Rally fans, rejoice — Toyota has announced that its European motorsport division Toyota Motorsports GmbH (TMG) is developing a GT86/Scion FR-S rally car. Dubbed the TMG GT86 CS-R3, this rally FR-S will be eligible for competition in the R3 class.
2013 Scion FR S Front Left View
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.
2013 Toyota Gt86 Front Three Quarters 2
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.
TRD Griffon GT86 Front Three Quarter
Toyota Racing Development has released photos of its newest project car based on the GT86 (known here as the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ). Called the TRD Griffon GT86, the modified sports coupe will make its public debut July 12 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
2013 Scion FR S Front Three Quarter 2
So Toyota's GT 86 (sold here as the award-winning Scion FR-S) is a success--what's next for the automaker and its stable of sporty cars? We hear that the Toyota/BMW sports car project briefly mentioned late last year is still taking shape.
