Toyota has finally produced a Scion that is certain to be embraced by sport compact enthusiasts. As Motor Trend reports, the Scion FR-S, which is being showcased at the New York Auto Show, is poised to re-ignite enthusiasts’ passion for the brand.
The FR-S was modeled in part after the popular AE86 Toyota Corolla. As a continuation of the Toyota Subaru collaborations, the FR-S sports a Subaru-sourced 2.0-liter boxer engine – the underpinnings of which were co-developed with the company. The engine has been updated with port and direct fuel injection, which Toyota is calling DS-4. Although official power figures have not been released, the engine could produce as much as 200 horsepower.
The concept features an aggressive body kit, 20-inch wheels (8.5 inches wide in the front and a massive 10.5 inches wide in the rear), and motorcycle-style 18-inch annular carbon ceramic Matrix rotors. With its hot new design and promising performance components, we hope the Scion FR-S is just the first in a string of very intriguing products.

In the spirit of the holiday season, Scion, a division of Toyota Motor Sales, has launched a special holiday toy program which helps servicemen and women currently deployed overseas to send their children a miniature die cast or plush tC at no cost, along with a personalized message from the service member.
“We can only imagine how difficult it must be for our brave, dedicated servicemen and women to be apart from their children over the holidays,” says Jack Hollis, Vice President of Scion. “Though it’s a simple gesture, keeping families connected and putting smiles on children’s faces – that’s what this season is all about.”
To support U.S. troops, Scion is working closely with Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard’s commercial sponsorship units. Currently deployed service members, or those who are preparing to deploy, can easily request that their child receive a miniature Scion die cast tC before the January 1, 2010 deadline by visiting http://www.scion.com/holiday/
It’s slightly larger than a Smart Car, but has all the style of a Scion. The iQ is rumored to be coming to North America in early 2011. The pictures below are from the New York Auto Show last year. The large tires and bowed out fenders will not be standard equipment. This will be a nice addition to the Scion line up which includes the Tc, xA and Xb.
