Scion FR-S

Overall Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: The 2013 Scion FR-S is the real deal: a sports car, built simply, at an affordable price.

Toyota had largely abandoned the idea of the affordable rear-wheel-drive sport coupe; but thanks to a collaboration with Subaru it’s back, and it’s spectacular: in the form of the 2013 Scion FR-S. The FR-S is nearly identical to the BRZ, with the same only subtle tuning changes; it gets its own front and rear look, with only a few subtle changes compared to the nearly identical BRZ. With a good standard-equipment list, a bargain starting price of around $25k, plus an interior that’s quite comfortable for a sport coupe, the FR-S is going to be appreciated by a wide range of people—everyone from weekend track purists to sports-car enthusiasts who want a quick, nimble car for the commute. Get the manual transmission, keep the engine revving, and you’ll be smiling.
