Scion has announced complete details on its all-new 2013 Scion FR-S, which goes on sale in June.
Scion is calling the FR-S an "authentic sports car at an affordable price." The new coupe starts at $24,200 and is the only car to utilize a flat-boxer engine in a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive configuration. The 200 hp, 2.0-liter, naturally-aspirated four-cylinder was developed jointly by Toyota and Subaru. It will get an EPA-estimated 25 city/34 highway mpg when equipped with the automatic transmission (which features a manual mode with paddle shifters) and 22 city/30 highway mpg when paired with the manual transmission. Those with a bent for performance driving will appreciate that the Scion FR-S has a low center of gravity comparable to some high-priced supercars as well as stability and traction control systems that the driver can set in five different configurations.
Inside, the 2013 Scion FR-S seats four and comes standard with six airbags; air conditioning; power locks, mirrors and windows; a folding rear seat, cruise control, an eight-speaker, 300-watt Pioneer audio system with HR radio and Bluetooth capability.
All 2013 Scion FR-S models will be come with Scion Service Boost, Scion's free maintenance plan, which covers two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first.
