About The Scion FR-S

Vehicle Summary

The Scion FR-S, manufactured from 2013 to 2016, is the American version of the Toyota 86 and the Subaru BRZ. It's a sporty little coupe designed for the driver who likes to zip around town and has no need for extensive cargo space or legroom in the back. 

With dual exhaust pipes, a perforated leather steering wheel, silver racing pedals — even the dead pedal's there — and seating for four across all model years, the Scion FR-S is an enthusiast's vehicle. 

Toyota marketed the same vehicle as the 86 in Asia, Australia, South Africa, and South America, as the Toyota GT86 in Europe, as the 86 and GT86 in New Zealand, as the Toyota FT86 in Nicaragua and Jamaica, and as the Scion FR-S (2013–2016) in the United States and Canada. Even in the U.S., the Scion wears the “86" badge on its side. 

This sleek rear-wheel-drive sports coupe was the result of a partnership between Toyota and Subaru and it is the darling of drivers who love driving. The hallmarks of the Scion FR-S include even weight distribution and a standard manual transmission that makes every drive fun, all distilled and captured into a curvy, agile car.

Scion FR-S vs. Other Sports Cars

Scion FR-S vs. Nissan 370Z 

The 2016 370Z has a 332-hp, 3.7L V6 engine and the 2016 Scion FR-S a 200-hp, 2.0L four-cylinder. Both are rear-wheel drive and the Nissan offers two seats to Scion's four. 

If it's more power you're looking for, the 370Z is a good match. However, the Scion FR-S is still fun and sporty with a playful suspension. 

Scion FR-S vs. Subaru BRZ 

The 2016 Subaru BRZ and the 2016 Scion FR-S are virtually identical. In terms of design, they have identical interior and exterior dimensions, wheels, and tires. The only way to distinguish the two — aside from the badges — is the front grille. The Subaru BRZ's is upturned and the Scion FRS grille looks more serious. 

Both the 2016 BRZ and the 2016 FR-S have a 2.0L boxer engine that delivers 200 horsepower; the FR-S is slightly lighter on its feet, but only by six pounds. Also, the BRZ includes navigation as standard in this model year while the FR-S does not. 

Scion FR-S vs. Toyota 86 

If you have your heart set on a Scion FR-S but can't find one in stock, the Toyota 86 is a close sibling. More like half-siblings, actually: the Toyota 86 offers five horsepower more than the Scion FR-S and five more lb-ft of torque on its manual transmission. You'd have to really drill down to find any further differences between these two cars. The dimensions on these two vehicles are the same too, so you can't go wrong however you choose. 


Q: What type of engine does a Scion FR-S have?

A: For all four model years, the Scion FR-S includes a 2.0L four-cylinder, RWD, and six-speed manual transmission with an optional six-speed automatic. The boxer configuration is an unusual one, often employed by Subaru; it's a naturally-aspirated flat-four engine with 200 horsepower capacity. 

Q: Does the Scion FR-S come in automatic?

A: All model years of the Scion FR-S came with a standard six-speed manual and an optional six-speed automatic transmission. The automatic offers a higher miles-per-gallon combined rating (an EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined across all four model years equipped with the 2.0L engine and automatic transmission vs. 24 mpg combined from manual 2013–2014 models, and 25 mpg combined from manual 2015–2016 models),1 but the manual offers you more control, and for some, more fun. 

Q: How fast is the Scion FR-S 0-60?

A: The Scion FR-S has a need for speed, although it's not the fastest car on the block. For all of the model years the FR-S was manufactured (2013–2016), it takes a respectable 6.2 seconds to go from zero to 60 mph. The top speed is 143 mph across all model years. 

Q: What does Scion FR-S stand for?

A: Scion means descendant or heir and in this case, it relates to the Toyota family. FR-S stands for front-engine, rear-wheel drive, and sport.
