Scion drives shoulder-to-shoulder against Mazda’s MX-5 Miata and Subaru BRZ in a tough completion of sports coupes, but when it comes to pricing Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ may appeal more to consumers. In short, they exhibit top-notch performance but enables buyers to save a few thousand bucks more.
Body and Core
FR-S’s racy, sleek body and driver-focused interior are a big plus in delighting a potential buyer. But what can truly give joy to one are the 2.0L flat-4 engine, rear-wheel drive chassis and the 6-speed manual transmission. With the manual transmission, we know the effects—it renders more control on the side of the driver and efficiently budgets the fuel. As result, you got one handsome-looking beast with the primeval power that allows the man behind the wheel to have some fun.
Six airbags come ready for the standard model together with leather-wrapped or telescoping steering wheel and the Pioneer head unit. You can add features such as the BeSpoke Audio plus Navigation System for just $900. Scion also allows great customization from a myriad of options at hand including the Toyota Racing Development engine and suspension upgrades.
