Expert Quotes:

The greenhouse is a homage to the Toyota 2000GT of the 1960s; the nose hints at the Lexus LFA supercar
Car and Driver

The FR-S cockpit is all business. Frivolous gee-whiz features -- such as Scion's typical flashy instrument displays and adjustable mood lighting -- are nowhere to be found.
Edmunds

It's wonderful to see just how much of the original FR-S concept's design has carried over to the production model
Auto Blog

As for the interior's design, it's classic sports car with a few new touches
Cars.com


Classic Japanese sports cars inspired the 2014 Scion FR-S's design, but it's an entirely modern car, from the badge on the nose to the one on the tail.

Sleek, low, and curvy, the FR-S manages the old-school long hood/short deck proportions that, for many, define the look of a sports car. Detail work at the nose includes a wide grille opening, sharply angled vents in the lower fascia, and smooth curves that flow into the hood and fenders.

The fenders themselves are slightly flared, and also bulge upward from the hood line. A simple side profile sees the roof sweep up and dive down again in a graceful arc, meeting the rear fenders and stubby tail.

The cabin of the FR-S follows this sports-first, minimalist aesthetic, using carbon-look accents and durable plastics molded in flowing, simple lines. The nearly monochromatic upholstery helps put the gauge cluster front-and-center for the driver.

Conclusion

Simple, classic, and modern and fun, the 2014 Scion FR-S looks like it drives.

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.
