You might not expect much in the way of comfort or interior quality of a $25,000 car focused on sporty driving, but the FR-S would surprise you. Quality plastics, comfortable front seats, and the overall feel of solidity and durability are palpable--or at least they were on the pre-production examples we drove for our test.

As noted, the front seats are roomy and comfortable, with plenty of legroom even for taller adults. Headroom is good as well, though the curving roof liner near the intersection with the side window may cause interference for those well over six feet tall. The rear seats are smartly sunken into the rear bulkhead, much in the way Porsche does it in the 911, but there's still a shortage of legroom for most. With a medium-height front passenger, however, even adults can find enough space for short trips.

The trunk itself isn't sedan-spacious, but it's reasonably-sized with a fair opening aperture allowing medium-sized bags with ease. Fold-flat rear seats open up a load deck that will hold much more--including four wheels and tires, a toolbox, and a helmet, according to Scion.

Conclusion

The 2013 Scion FR-S offers a comfortable and well-made interior, but it's still a 2+2 coupe--don't expect to take the family for a trip.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
