2016 Scion FR-S History

Designed by Toyota and launched in 2003, the Scion nameplate ceased production in August of 2016. In an effort to appeal to younger drivers, the Scion brand featured mostly sports compact models like the 2016 Scion FR-S.

Unlike some other cars, driving the 2016 Scion FR-S with an automatic transmission offers just as much responsive fun as doing so with a manual transmission. While driving this sports car along the straight roads will deliver a respectable experience, it is during the curves that its abilities really shine. The nimble and sharp handling keeps the 2016 Scion FR-S well balanced as it heads into turns and helps it retain that sporty edge throughout.

With its solid build and sturdy controls, the 2016 Scion FR-S takes the sports car driving experience to a level somewhere in between spartan and luxurious. In essence, it's a true sports car that the driver can feel one with while taking it through its paces.
