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 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.

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.

Conclusion

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.

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.
