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 six-speed 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 virtually no body lean. The steering is well weighted, with decent feedback, and the ride is slightly more compliant than the Subaru BRZ. 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 due to below average reliability.
