Scion pretty much left the FR-S alone for 2014. No worries there; it's a terrific car just as is. It may not look like it from the outside, but this sleek road runner seats four. The price range reflects the cost difference between the six-speed manual and the six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission.
Whichever transmission you choose, get up and go comes from a 200-horsepower, horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine. The engine's flat design helps keep the center of gravity low for better stability. Not as quick as some other sports cars, the FR-S makes up for it with its agility and superb handling.
Standard features include an eight-speaker Pioneer audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and iPod interface.
