2014 Scion FR-S Fuel Economy

With just two powertrain options defined by the choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, you might think there wouldn't be much variation in the gas mileage of the Scion FR-S. Again, you'd be wrong.

The manual-transmission Scion FR-S rates 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway for 25 mpg combined. Those are good, but not especially impressive figures for a compact, lightweight four-cylinder car.

With the automatic transmission those figures move considerably to 25 mpg city, 34 mpg highway, and 28 mpg combined--much more on the target you'd expect for the FR-S.

It's no gas hog, but the 2014 Scion FR-S isn't as efficient as we expect a low-power, lightweight car to be.

With 455-horsepower sports cars like the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray achieving as much as 30 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined, the Scion FR-S's 200 horsepower and 25-28 mpg combined rating is underwhelming.
