About The Scion FR-S
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.

Reviews for Scion FR-S
Quick, efficient, amazing curve and bump handling
True rwd light little sports car with great punch, but with the added bonus of great gas mileage at an amazing price. Nothing fancy with features inside because the handling (corners like it's on rails, yes, true!) and the ride itself is stellar, don't need anything else. Surprising amount of storage space with the back seat down for such a small package. No mechanical issues so far, and with a Subaru engine, don't anticipate anything big coming in the near future. 6-speed shifts smooth, decent stock stereo, Bluetooth connectivity is great for hands free phone access. Oh, and of course, it looks pretty frippin' cool too. Can't be happier as a car owner.
- Ride and Handling: Amazing! No words for it, have to test drive one to understand how great it is
- Fuel Economy: Even with premium, I still get better gas mileage and pay less monthly than my last car
- Styling: Sleek lines, not overstated
- Interior Space: If you were 6'5, it might be a little tight for you
Bought back my first car
Wonderful sporty, nimble vehicle. If you're looking for straight line speed, look elsewhere. But if you like passing mustangs, challengers, and Camaros in the corners, this is for you. Great for taunting owners of vehicles twice as expensive. I had owned this vehicle for 1 1/2 years, before deciding to sell it. That was a big mistake, so I came to buy it back. Best decision I ever made! Carmax wanted a review, so here we are.
- Ride and Handling: Begs for more power around tight turns, great at staying grounded while doing 60+ mph
- Reliability: Never failed me. 95 degree days, -20 degree night, snow(with proper tires, dont be stupid), rain, never failed to start and go.
- Styling: Definitely not seen everywhere. Unusual shape and sleek styling, car was 25k new, that's a bargain.
- Visibility: Be careful, there is a decently large blindspot in the rear window and back quarter of the car.
- Interior Space: If you're over 5 foot 8 inches, fitment may be uncomfortable for your legs.
So much more than what I expected
When I bought this car I thought I was making a sacrifice. I loved the body style but everyone talked about how slow the car was. Maybe I got a good one but this car is everything but slow. With that said it isn't the fastest car around but dollar for dollar this car will stand up to the best. This car hangs with my wife's VW GTI. That's right a car that has 100 more HP than the FR-S but these things are so dang light. I do have to say i got a re-tune the week after I got the car. That got rid to the dreaded power curve dip at 3500rpm. Running on high-grade gas the thing is a blast to drive. handeling is the best if been in. Even compared to BMW and Corvette. It's just more fun to drive.
- Styling: This thing is SMALL. I really like the overall style. When I decided to buy the car it was based on style alone. I was surprised at the overall performance. Bonus!
- Seat Comfort: While this car is very small (really a two seater) the front seats are extremely comfortable. They are ridged enough for playing on a track day yet comfortable enough for long trips.
- Ride and Handling: The car handles like its on rails. While this isn't the fastest car i've owned it is the most fun to drive. Braking is amazing. I would rate the driving experience up there with BMW & Corvette. Its not as fast as those cars but driving it is just so much FUN.
- Technology and Entertainment: I go the upgraded sound system. Save your money. The sound system stinks and you would do better with an aftermarket with better speakers.
