Scion has announced full details for the FR-S – making the sports car the fifth model to become a part of 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 fuel efficiency. Equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, special amenities include paddle shifters and Dynamic Rev Management technology. The FR-S’s 2.0-liter, naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine is the result of a joint development between Toyota and Subaru which sees the 200 horsepower engine getting an EPA-estimated rating of 34 mpg on the highway when paired with the automatic transmission, and 30 mpg with the manual transmission. Priced at a reasonable $24,200 USD, the 2013 Scion FR-S is an affordable offering with sports car performance.
