2015 Scion FR-S What's new for 2015? 
2015 Scion FR-S

The biggest change to the 2015 Scion FR-S is to the suspension, which has been revised to improve handling stability, which in turn increases driver confidence. The few exterior changes are almost too subtle to notice. There's also a new Release Series 1.0, limited to just 1,500 vehicles.

2013 Scion FR-S

All-new and channeling the spirit of performance icons like the Toyota AE86 and 2000GT, the 2013 FR-S is undoubtedly the most thrilling product to enter Toyota's portfolio in some time (even if it does technically wear a Scion badge).

About Scion FR-S

The 2015 Scion FR-S is this generation's Datsun 240Z or Mazda RX-7. Light, quick and affordable, this little 2+2 sports coupe emphasizes sporty driving, adding just enough refinement to make it an acceptable daily driver. Developed in collaboration with Subaru – which calls its version the Subaru BRZ – the Scion is more affordable, with a starting price that's right around the $25,000 mark, undercutting its Subaru sibling by about $1,000. This year, the Scion FR-S receives enhancements to its suspension designed to make it more stable in corners. Don't worry though, as the Scion FR-S is still a playful, rear-drive sports coupe with decent power and a wicked-looking exterior treatment unlike anything Scion has produced in the past.

FR-S Chillin on the Beach

"Just fun to drive. Handles great, accelerates really well especially considering it has 200 hp. The front seats are really comfortable. Dont be fooled, its not made for more than 2 people. Nobody, not even children, should sit in the back. And the material of the seats in the back is really cheap, almost like felt. Also, the manual transmission is much more fun to drive than the automatic (test drove the automatic first, but opted to buy the manual). Overall, Amazing car that is well worth the money spent."

"I have had literally over 100 used cars (went through the phase of buying and selling rust free classics out here in Arizona). My favorites have been the Datsun 240z's and early Miatas. I have to say this if you took the best parts of both cars, coupled it with some modern technology, you'd have the Scion FRS. I bought the 10th anniversary edition as I loved the color and some of the little options. Anyway, absolutely perfect car and with the seats folding down it has surprising trunk capacity. Thank you Toyota/Scion, you created a modern sports car waiting to be crowned a classic. Just please don't make too many of them... lol I like being unique."

Very low profile, makes the STi seem BIG!

"This car is soo balanced, precise steering and handling like no other! Prior seemed like Miata/S2000/370Z/Genesis were the only Rwd Sporty cars that weren't an insane Price! This car has more headroom then expected! Enough room for a helmet/people 6' or so. Seats A+ !! Backseats fold down and can haul 4 wheels/tires no prob- I tested it! Very bolstered and nicer than all my prior WRX/STI's I have owned. Great mpg I see 27mpg city/hwy mix and everything fit/finish/layout makes sense! I upgraded the tires to Hankook RS3 140 treadwear tire and this thing STICKS!! The car is said to be one of the Lowest Center of Gravity production cars, when matched w/ sticky tires it is like a roller coaster through the Autocross! It Rocks!! :) Best handling car I have owned by far!! Only complaint is want for more power esp if you have had turbo cars prior, spoils a person."
