2014 Scion FR-S

What’s New for the 2014 Scion FR-S

Since the Scion FR-S was introduced last year, there aren’t many big changes coming in the year 2014. A touchscreen audio system is now standard with additional padding on the door panels and sides of the center console.

2014 Scion FR-S Exterior

There’s really only one word that comes to mind when you first catch sight of the 2014 Scion FR-S—sexy. With sharp lines and sculpted edges, this car is built like a lean jungle cat, ready to pounce. The headlights are even shaped a bit like cat eyes, helping you feel the power that seems to be coiled just below the coupe’s surface.

2014 Scion FR-S Performance

A 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine powers the FR-S, churning out a generous 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. The car also offers an option of a six-speed manual or automatic transition with paddle shifters, and rev-matched downshifts route power to the rear wheels.

2014 Scion FR-S Efficiency

If the manual transmission is for you, the FR-S will get you a pretty impressive 25 mpg combined, while the automatic has a bit higher mpg at 28 combined.

2014 Scion FR-S Interior

The cabin in the FR-S is built to encourage fun driving with a blend of Toyota and Subaru materials to create the perfect environment to get top speed. While some might think it’s a bit too business-like, the simple design takes you back to the basics, while the front seats make sure you have plenty of support for hard driving, while still being comfortable for long rides. It’s not really built for backseat passengers, so the room in the rear seats is next to nothing, but you probably wouldn’t want to haul the kids to soccer practice in this car, anyways.

2014 Scion FR-S Safety

For the 2014 Scion FR-S, standard safety features include antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags.
