Expert Quotes:

Items you won't find are a sunroof — Toyota uses a solid roof to keep weight down — or steering-wheel audio controls.

Frankly, it will feel a bit spartan compared to some other sporty cars in its price range like the VW GTI, but then this is supposed to be a back-to-basics sort of driver's car.

Although the manual suits the character of the FR-S better, the optional automatic with paddle shifters is a responsive and quick-shifting ally.
Car and Driver

Despite having a rather complicated audio control setup (wait and see just how long it takes you to adjust the bass/treble – seriously), the center console functions are very simply laid out and easy to use.

As with the engine and transmission selection, there's just not much on the menu of the 2014 Scion FR-S. Fortunately, what's there is good.

Most of the options and upgrades can be had a la carte, rather than bundled into pricey packages, making it easier to get just the FR-S you want, without stuff you don't need. Highlights of the standard equipment include: manually adjustable six-way driver and four-way passenger front seats; fold-flat rear seats; a first-aid kit; a leather-wrapped steering wheel; eight-speaker Pioneer audio system; USB/Bluetooth/auxiliary inputs; and more.

Some of the optional extras for the FR-S include: BeSpoke premium audio with a 5.8-inch LCD touchscreen display and 340-watt output and limited apps capability; plus accessories including wheel locks, carpeted trunk and cabin floor mats, an ashtray kit, and mud guards.

One notable absence is navigation, which isn't available on the FR-S. The BeSpoke apps capability can add some limited navigation functionality, but for an FR-S with navigation, you'll want to check out the Subaru BRZ.

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.
