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
Great car with great features
The car has everything you could ask for. Its rear wheel drive sporty also comfortable at the same time. There really isn't much I would change about the car. The car isn't super fast, but still sporty and a joy to drive. I would recommend this car to anyone who enjoys a driving and the experience that goes along with that. This car is even works for someone who just wants to pick up the groceries. Highly recommended car
- Fuel Economy: Great mileage around town & highway
- Seat Comfort: Comfy and Soft, Also provides great support
- Value: Get a lot of features at a great price. Rear wheel drive, comfy seats, sporty handling, A lot of aftermarket parts.
- Power: Lacks power but still sporty to drive.
- Interior Space: Back seats are hard to fit a normal size person. Crowded
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.
Best affordable sports car on the market
This car is awesome, but if you buy it you have to understand what you're getting. The FR-S is a quick, nimble, corner car. It's not something you're going to drag race a Mustang in, if you're planning to win at least. It's very fun to drive, gets good gas mileage, and if you get the six-speed, you'll be happy as a clam. The price is right, and the performance is there if you want to do work on it.
- Ride and Handling: Hugs the corners, with a better center of gravity than a Lotus.
- Value: Best sports car for the money on the market.
- Styling: Have you seen this car? It's awesome.
- Power: Toyota forgot to put the turbochargers on these...
- Weather Versatility: It's super light and rear-wheel drive. Be careful if you've never had a RWD car before!
