A new Boston.com review is praising the 2014 FR-S Sports Coupe as a “wonderfully stylish, great-handling, and performance-oriented offering” from Scion.
The article relates how the Scion brand began in 2002 as a way to appeal to younger consumers with “its combination of affordability, customization possibilities, and reputation for reliability.” Now, the FR-S is adding “a healthy dollop of performance” to that formula.
The reviewer writes that the newest edition of the FR-S “remains a joy to drive,” thanks to a boxer four-cyliner engine that produces 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.
The FR-S is also praised for its “strong array of safety features,” tech features that include “a new-for-2014 built-in navigation system-satellite radio,” and gorgeous, attention-grabbing design. Interior-wise, the “surprisingly comfortable seats and driving position” and “intuitive controls” contribute to a fantastic driving experience.
The article concludes that a car this entertaining should have been badged “as the FUN instead of the FR-S.” To experience true FUN in all caps, stop by Krause Toyota Scion to test drive the FR-S Sports Coupe today.
