This high performance sports car is the fifth model to join the Scion family. Inspired by Toyota AE86, FR-S is built around the core goal of sheer performance and pure balance. This performance and balance begins with the use of the world's only front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration using a FA20 2.0 liter, four cylinder boxer engine.
Some of the standard features on FR-S include:
The front sports seats are shaped to accommodate manual shifting and support longitudinal and lateral G-force. The leather wrapped 3-spoke sports steering wheel, utilizes the smallest diameter in the Scion lineup. The idea of “Pure Balance” is further realized by FR-S’s lightweight design and compact size. This allows the car to be quick and nimble into and out of corners. This combination is further proof that Scion is truly “Bringing the Sport Back to the Car.”
The FR-S will be available in seven colors including Raven, Asphalt, Hot Lava, Argento,Ultramarine, Firestorm and Whiteout.
So there's a lot to watch out for in this beautiful piece of art, which has been designed by Toyota and engineered by Subaru. It's the best of the two worlds. Toyota's agility and Subaru's stability.
As far as the feedback and the response from the few esteemed owners are concerned the word is positive so far. So why not take FR-S for a spin.
