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.

Moments before driving it off the showroom floor.

"If you read or watch reviews about this car, all the good things you hear about it are absolutely true. It's extremely nimble, hugs corners, and fantastically responsive. People always ask me, "Is it fast?" No. But, 'quick' would be more accurate, by any measure. Shifting is tight, solid. Steering is just as good. For drivers who understand driving, the FR-S is very much an extension of oneself-- a refreshing feeling, since most modern vehicles lack a real connection with the driver. Its shortcomings are few: Virtually no blind-spot visibility. The rear windows are narrow, and pillars, wide. Luckily the mirrors provide good range, and adjusted properly, my blind spots are confidently covered. Back seat is hardly practical. However, if you're looking to buy a sports car and actually plan on using the back seat, you should reconsider. Emergency situations only. A weighted shifter/shift knob would be nice. Finally, if you're conflicted about the difference between the FR-S and the BRZ, the FR-S has slightly tweaked suspension, which makes it a better performer at a lower cost. The BRZ has options available for luxury features and accessories, but base model is more expensive. I like it simple and straightforward. And the Scion FR-S delivers that better than anything else out there. If you've ever driven a Honda S2000, the feel is similar. For some strange reason, pictures and videos don't really seem to make this car look as stunning as it does in person."
