Scion FR-S Overview

Jointly developed with Subaru, the rear-wheel-drive FR-S features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, teamed with a choice of a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Its low curb weight and optimal weight distribution give it super-agile handling and balance at its limits. In corners, the car turns in promptly, with almost no body lean. The steering is well-weighted, and the ride is slightly more compliant than its Subaru BRZ sibling. Inside, the cabin is relatively plain, with well-bolstered sport seats, but the stiff ride and elevated noise can be taxing. The vestigial rear seats are best left for cargo. We cannot recommend the FR-S because of below-average reliability.
