2013 SCION FR-S
The new 2013 Scion FR-S compact rear-wheel drive high-performance coupe is the fifth model to join the Scion family.
The FR-S, which stands for Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive, Sport, is Scion's definition of an authentic rear-wheel-drive sports car with exceptionally balanced performance and handling, compelling style, flexible utility and surprising MPG.
The balance begins with the strategic use of the world's only flat boxer engine in a front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration. The engine's compact size and flat shape allow it to be mounted mid-ship and extremely low, giving the car a dynamically favorable front-to-rear weight ratio of 53:47 and a low center of gravity comparable to some exotic supercars.
The FR-S's 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, with an impressive 200 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque, is the result of a joint development between Toyota and Subaru. The flat-four mates with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.
The fierce exterior of the FR-S is a solid reflection of its inner power. The profile, inspired by the Toyota 2000GT, reveals a hood and roof-line that is remarkably sleek and low, giving it an aerodynamic shape that channels air cleanly over to the top. The low stance continues to exaggerate the coupe's menacing face, which is made up of sharp lines, a wide mouth and angular headlights.
The FR-S's interior features a 2+2 seating configuration that is designed with both form and function in mind. The front seats are mounted extremely low and are comfortable yet assertive, while the rear seat folds down flat, creating flexible space.
