KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 11/13/2013


For reasons unknown, Toyota and Subaru joined forces to create a fun, fast and relatively affordable 2+2 sports coupe known collectively as the Scion FR-S and the Subaru BRZ. Although nearly identical, the Scion version puts less emphasis on features, helping to keep the price in the $25K neighborhood. The result is a playful, rear-drive sports coupe with neutral handling, decent power and a wicked-looking exterior treatment unlike anything Scion has produced in the past.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're all about driving dynamics, rowing your own gears and putting your skills behind the wheel to the test, there is no better car to prove yourself in than the 2014 Scion FR-S.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The FR-S is fun, but not terribly fast. If straight-line performance and brutal torque define driving fun for you, you'll be much happier in a Chevy Camaro or Ford Mustang or even a Hyundai Genesis coupe.

What's New for 2014

Changes to the 2014 Scion FR-S are limited to the addition of a standard touch-screen radio and front-seat knee cushions added to the doors and center-console sides.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The Scion FR-S for 2014 is built to excite the driving enthusiast who believes driving is more than just mashing an accelerator pedal and hurtling forward as fast as humanly possible. In the FR-S, the driver gets to practice the lost art of driving, not just steering. Keep the rpm high and the throttle response is magical. A slight input to the steering wheel sends the FR-S exactly where you want it, and although the rear steps out slightly, it doesn't require much correction to keep it in check. Those still gleaning their skills will find the FR-S is very forgiving, making it an excellent car to practice with on an enclosed track. Power from the 2.0-liter flat-4 isn't bad, and the 6-speed manual is so good it could very well be the poster child that inspires a "shift-for-yourself" revolution.

Favorite Features

TOUCH-SCREEN RADIO
We love that Scion has made this feature standard on the FR-S. Now if we could just get some steering-wheel audio controls to go along with it.

TORSEN LIMITED-SLIP DIFFERENTIAL
A must in any sports car worth its salt, the Torsen limited-slip differential in the FR-S evenly distributes power to the rear wheels in the turns, ensuring safe passage out of sharp curves and tempting the "Tokyo Drift" crowd to come play (on a proper track, of course).
