The Scion FR-S is a Scion-badged version of the Toyota 86 2+2 sports coupe sold in the United States of America and Canada.
The Scion FR-S, exclusive to the United States and Canada, has its name derived from a description of its platform: Front-engine, Rear-wheel-drive, Sport. Originally, the FR-S had no trim levels and all FR-S variants were offered with Scion's BeSpoke stereo system.
The FR-S uses the Subaru FA20/Toyota 4U-GSE naturally aspirated 2.0L (1,998 cc) flat-four engine with Subaru's horizontally-opposed boxer engine design and Toyota's D-4S injection system, which uses both direct and port fuel injection. The FA20/4U-GSE produces 200 hp (203 PS; 149 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 151 ft·lb (205 Nm) at 6,000 rpm. As part of the 86's low-weight design, the car utilizes an aluminium hood, a solid roof, and a trunk. The 86, BRZ and FR-S are offered with two 6-speed transmissions, an in-house developed Toyota TL70 manual gearbox (based on Aisin AI's AZ6) and an Aisin-Warner A960E, which is modified from that used on the Lexus IS 250. The automatic uses a traditional wet torque converter design, but its software has been engineered to mimic the response of a dual-clutch gearbox. The automatic transmission uses three different modes: Sport, Snow, and Normal. A torque sensing limited slip differential is standard on most models.
Scion estimates performance figures of 0-60 mph in 7.4 seconds, while a top speed of 145 mph (233 km/h) was tested.
The Scion FR-S basically acts as a stat upgrade to the Cadillac ATS, but with better acceleration and greatly improved handling due to the FR-S being much lighter, although the FR-S does have a small likelihood of skidding out of control and/or wrecking (if in the hands of an unskilled user). Its high top speed stat, on the other hand, gives it the edge over most similarly-ranked Class D cars.
As of the Car Blueprints Update, the Scion FR-S costs 11,250 to purchase, 140,600 to max out, and 23,166 for Pro Kits, which also require 3 of each Class D Parts card and 2 of each Common Tech card (Initial Tech, Early Tech). Originally, the FR-S cost 7,500 to purchase.
The Scion FR-S, in summary, is a decent car to buy with well-balanced stats across the board. In Multiplayer, while appearing to be competitive, it stands no chance against the Renault DeZir and Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic. Currently, the FR-S appears in no collections.
