2014 Scion FR-S
2014 Scion FR-S

New for 2014

The 2014 Scion FR-S gets a standard 6.1-inch touchscreen display for its audio system. Three special editions, the 10 Series, Monogram Series, and Release Series 1.0 Yuzu, are also available. 10 Series models come exclusively in Silver Ignition exterior and add an illuminating exterior badging and gear shifter, and an electroluminescent dash panel.
Monogram Series variants add more convenience and tech features to the 2014 FR-S such as heated leather front seats, BeSpoke Premium Audio with navigation, dual-zone climate control, rear center armrest, heated outside mirrors, and push-button start.
Finally, the FR-S Release Series 1.0 Yuzu features more performance-oriented upgrades from TRD such as an aero kit, three-piece spoiler, lowering springs, and quad-tip exhausts. Additionally, it also features HID headlights, LED daytime running lights, dual-zone climate control, push-button start, and “T-Fabric” pattern sport seats.

Vehicle Overview

The 2014 Scion FR-S is a rear-drive sports car sold in a single trim and is available with a host of accessories that allow buyers to personalize their vehicle. Along with the Subaru BRZ, it is one of two sports cars that emerged out of Toyota’s partnership with Subaru’s parent company, Fuji Heavy Industries.


The 2014 FR-S is a thoroughbred sports car that focuses on handling prowess over straight-line speed. It is powered by a high-revving 2.0-liter flat-4 producing 200 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque paired to six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Due to its light weight and small engine, the 2014 FR-S achieves decent fuel economy with the EPA rating manual-equipped cars at 22/30 mpg city/highway while opting for the automatic improves those numbers to 25/34 mpg.
Excellent driving dynamics define the FR-S with a stiff chassis and suspension that has “playful” demeanor and allows the rear to rotate if one “gets on the throttle too hard.” The FR-S’s light weight contributes to its handling prowess and allows it to “dive into corners with enthusiasm and minimum understeer.” However, the steering, while “highly accurate, isn’t hugely communicative on-road.”
Interior space in the 2014 FR-S is good for two averaged-sized adults and snug for tall individuals. The rear seats are nearly useless for carry people and should only be used to expand the car’s small trunk. Additionally, its infotainment system is dated with fussy controls and a “weak-sounding stereo.”
The 2014 Scion FR-S has a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars) and is considered a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, earning a good score in four out of five tests except the small overlap front category where it earned an acceptable rating (good is the highest possible score).

What We Think

The 2014 Scion FR-S is a good sports car that emphasizes handling prowess over straight-line speed. In a First Drive review of a 2013 model, we noted that the car “moves fluidly,” showing the car’s focus on outright agility and lack of understeer. Accurate and precise steering gives the driver with a good sense of connection with the car, making it feel natural “as every action and reaction feels like you expect it to.” Being an ultra-focused sports car means that creature comforts in the FR-S are limited and space, despite the 2+2 configuration is limited to two adults while trunk capacity is nearly nonexistent at 6.9 cubic feet with the rear seats in place.

Top 5 New Cars For College 2014 Cla 45amg Side
With tuition costs ballooning at universities nationwide, it's no surprise fewer students want to drive themselves to college. Why pay to fuel, park, and insure a car when you can walk, bike, or take the bus around campus? Well, having a car means you can take impromptu weekend road trips, hit up the grocery store whenever necessary, take a date to more far-flung locates, or go tailgating before the big game.

It shouldn’t come as a terrible shock that Toyota executives are reportedly unconvinced that the rumored Scion FR-S hybrid sports car is a viable business option. Autocar reports that although Toyota engineers have the technology and capability to build a Scion FR-S hybrid, high costs and a small potential market make the project a low-likelihood prospect for production.

Although there has been some heavy doubt cast on the viability of a Scion FR-S convertible, Motor Trend reports that the drop-top sports car is headed to production for October 2014. Furthermore, the report says the long-rumored sedan version will follow in 2016.
2014 Scion FR S Release Series 10 Front Three Quarters
The 2014 Scion FR-S rear-wheel-drive sports car gets its first Release Series model this year called the Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0. Whereas most of these Scion Release Series models comprise mild tweaks like nicer wheels, a body kit, and a new exterior color, this special edition actually adds TRD performance parts and some extra equipment.

There’s something inherently satisfying about doing the perfect burnout. Tires screech, smoke circles, and anticipation builds until you finally set off into the waiting distance. The only thing better, we imagine, would be surging forward into a huge puddle, fanning walls of flying water in each direction. Scion racing driver Ken Gushi did just that in a burnt orange, rear-wheel-drive Scion FR-S.
