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.
We’ve got an excellent selection of pre-owned Scion vehicles with special sale prices at Gresham Toyota. All three models of the innovative Scion are represented in our inventory. Come take one out for a test drive!
This interesting New York Times article describes Scion cars as blending “performance, price and aesthetics in optimal measure.” The Scion arm of Toyota’s brand has been pursuing these youth-positive goals since 2003.
Scion’s value conscious fans will cheer the low price-point and the robust standard features like 18-inch wheels, a 300-watt, 8-speaker Pioneer sound system, the gorgeous moonroof, 4-wheel disc brakes, traction control and, crucially, 180 horsepower.
Drivers will enjoy the thick purposeful steering wheel which tilts and telescopes for comfort. The exterior offers clean lines and design features reminiscent of a drag racer. This open canvas should appeal to the thriving Scion aftermarket fans, who will surely equip the new tC with personalized distinctiveness.
The 2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine thrives in the lower spectrum with feather light steering, and accelerates through road turns with a firmly planted chassis. Well designed rear sight lines provide wide visibility, even with two passengers in the rear seats. With an 8.2, 0-60 acceleration rate and great fuel-economy the 2011 tC speeds you to a weekend drive to the Willamette vineyards as well as zippy daily commutes.
