Introduction

The Scion FR-S is flat-out engineered for fun but comes well equipped, including standard Bluetooth and rearview camera. Navigation isn’t available on the Scion, though that feature is available on the pricier Subaru BRZ. The FR-S has standard equipment more along the lines of things like the limited-slip differential. Engineered for fun.

That’s what the FR-S is known for: being able to toss the car around and laugh yourself silly. Its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine comes from Subaru, with Toyota’s direct port injection system, and makes a relatively modest 200 horsepower, with the 0-60 time a relatively leisurely 6.8 seconds. So the blast has to from somewhere other than speed, and that is cornering.

First, it’s about good balance, with the horizontally opposed engine mounted rearward. The boxer engine design means a lower center of gravity, because the cylinders are parallel to the ground and keep the weight low. And the FR-S is rear-wheel drive, with front wheels free to do the turning, unburdened by the driving. It comes with either a six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed automatic with paddle shifters.

The FR-S engineering philosophy goes against the new-school sports car grain of big horsepower and sticky tires. The FR-S comes standard with harder (thus longer lasting) tires, so that the car will slip a bit. It’s forgiving and responsive, thanks to the excellent balance and horsepower that’s not out of this world. So it makes you feel like Fernando Alonso.

And there are serious performance upgrades available, including a cold-air intake; exhaust system; lower springs; strut braces; anti-roll bars; bigger wheels and brakes. But to prove it’s not hard-core about performance, there is an available infotainment system with seven-inch screen and voice control.

Changes for 2016 include some tweaks to the body and cabin trim, a new eight-speaker audio system, and rearview camera. With six airbags, FR-S gets five stars from NHTSA and top safety pick from IIHS. It gets an EPA-estimated 25 mpg Combined with the manual transmission, and 28 mpg with the efficient automatic.

Lineup

Scion FR-S retails for $25,305 with the six-speed manual transmission. Standard equipment includes six-way driver and four-way passenger front seats with manual adjustment, fold-flat rear seats, first-aid kit, eight-speaker sound system, and USB/Bluetooth/auxiliary inputs. Options include wheel locks, carpeted trunk and cabin mats, and mud guards. Scion dealers offer bolt-on performance bits.

Walkaround

The FR-S puts aerodynamic touches at the nose and tail to classic proportions of a long hood and short deck. It is low, curvy and sleek, with a wide grille and sharp vents in the front fascia flowing toward the bulging flared fenders. The roof rolls in a graceful arc toward the stubby tail.

Interior

The spartan cabin can’t be called beautiful, but it is handsome and well built, with upholstery that’s just one color, faux carbon-fiber trim, and durable plastics that flow cleanly. The gauges are driver-oriented, front and center.

The front seats are excellent, well-bolstered and comfortable, with good leg and hip room. There’s also good head room, so a six-foot driver is no problem. There’s a small rear seat that’s kid-sized, though it is possible for another six-footer to fit back there if the front-passenger seat were slid all the way forward.

The growl of the engine is piped in. Over 70 mph the wind and road noise is prominent.

The cargo space is not bad for a sports car, or rather a two-plus-two coupe. The trunk is decent and the rear seats fold flat. The FR-S was designed to hold four tires and a toolbox, for track days.

Driving Impressions

When it comes to performance, the FR-S will meet your expectations, as long as they are realistic. For a sub-$25,000 car powered by a four-cylinder engine, the 2012 Scion FR-S delivers tight handing, good feedback and plenty of fun.

Acceleration is smooth and linear, though, we sometimes found the FR-S didn’t have a ton of thrust off the line, or when trying to pass on the freeway at high speeds. Still, there was plenty of power for most driving situations.

On the track, the car was able and forgiving, and while the low end didn’t throw us back in our seats, we had ample power in the higher revs. With only 151 foot-pounds of torque, you have to keep it revving toward its 7400 rpm redline.

The firm suspension delivers great handling. Equipping it with Toyota Racing Development (TRD) lower springs and sway bars makes for a rough ride over speed bumps and into driveways. We felt every single bump in the road, which grew tedious after five hours on the freeway. But on winding roads and on the track, the FR-S was at its best, with a chassis that felt balanced and hunkered down, with very little body roll around corners. The TRD setup is great for performance, but some people might find it too firm for daily driving.

The electric power steering is precise and well-weighted, intuitive and quick, but you can’t feel much through the steering wheel.

The brakes are adequate and easy to modulate, and should easily be able to stand six laps at a time on track days.

The manual transmission feels tight, with very short throws, slipping into the gates with what seemed like a single click. Though it might be too abrupt for some, we prefer it to the somewhat sloppy feel of the manual gearboxes on other cars. On a long road trip from Los Angeles to Northern California, we liked being able to slip it into sixth gear and cruise.

Cars with automatic transmissions are equipped with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and have automatic rev matching, which means it will blip the throttle while downshifting to match engine speed for maximum performance. This is particularly helpful on the track. Shifts with the automatic are relatively quick but not lightning fast. The automatic lacks some refinement.

EPA fuel economy estimates for the Scion FR-S are 22/35/25 mpg for the manual and 25/34/28 for the automatic.

Summary

The FR-S is what a sports car should be. It is pure, fun and affordable. It belongs on a twisty road, while cabin comfort means it’s not a penalty box in daily driving.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
