As a reasonably priced sports car, the 2016 Scion FR-S has some impressive performance capabilities. The FR-S certainly looks like it belongs on the racetrack, but its features and functionality make it an ideal car for thrill-seeking drivers who desire sport-like performance for everyday driving.
2016 Scion FR-S performance specs
The 2016 FR-S runs on a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine that cranks out 200 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 151 lb-ft torque at 6,400 rpm. The front-mounted engine pairs well with the vehicle’s rear-wheel drive system for dynamic performance.
Despite its powerful engine, the 2016 FR-S is a ULEV-II low emission vehicle and can achieve EPA-estimated 25 mpg combined with the manual transmission and 28 mpg combined with the automatic transmission.
The 2016 Scion FR-S comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, which offers the traditional sport car experience. Otherwise, drivers can upgrade to six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and Dynamic Rev Management.
The FR-S is equipped with a MacPherson strut suspension in the front and a double wishbone suspension in the rear, both of which work together to provide dynamic handling and extraordinary rider comfort.
Sport-like design for the 2016 FR-S
In addition to what’s under the hood, the 2016 Scion FR-S also looks the part both inside and out. Its aerodynamic exterior turns heads on the road, while its comfortable interior provides a safe haven for up to four riders. Since the FR-S has a lower center of gravity, drivers have a closer connection to the road and the vehicle for enhanced performance. Its low weight also contributes to its impressive capabilities and efficiency.
