2016 Scion FR-S Specs

Although some modifications are expected, the basic characteristics of the car will remain unchanged. The 2016 Scion FR-S will be a very well balanced sports car with rear-wheel drive and mounted boxer engine. The main changes will be on the cars visual appearance. New model will come with basically same look, but with several modifications, which will make it more aggressive and more attractive. The most of the changes will be on the front end, so expect some tweaks on the areas such as grille, headlights or bumper. When it is about interior, some small modifications are also expected. The 2016 FR-S will feature black interior with black patterned dash trim.

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.

Standard features in the four-seat 2016 Scion FR-S include a leather-trimmed steering wheel that tilts and telescopes, cruise control, a new rearview camera, an eight-speaker Pioneer audio system with a 7-inch (replaces 6.1-inch) LCD touch-screen display, Bluetooth, HD Radio and USB connectivity. A premium BeSpoke audio system with navigation and smartphone app integration is available as a dealer-installed option.

The cabin of the FR-S follows this form-follows-function, 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. For 2016, the interior is prettied up a bit with some new silver accent trim pieces.

2016 Scion FR-S Engine

Things under the hood are likely to remain unchanged. The 2016 Scion FR-S will be powered by the same 2.0 liter Boxer engine, which has maximum output of 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of max torque. However, this engine could be slightly boosted up, so 2016 FR-S could come with some additional power. Current model has great performances it goes from 0 to 60 in about 6 seconds, ¼ mile time is around 14.7 seconds, while top speed is over 145 mph.

It’s powered by a 2.0-liter horizontally-opposed four-cylinder that produces 200 horsepower. At 151 lb-ft, it’s not exactly a torque monster, especially in the low-rev range. You can run the car all the way up to its 7,400-rpm redline, though, where you’ll find a little more power when you need it. As long as you don’t putting some work in, the 2.0-liter rewards you. The engine is a variation of a Subaru design, with Toyota’s direct- and port-injection system added in.

Steering is a mixed bag, with the precise and well-weighted electric power assist taking out much of the feel, leaving behind an intuitive and quick, but not very communicative, wheel. The brakes are easy to modulate and adequate for the car’s weight and tire fitment, easily surviving a half-dozen laps on track or a long, fast canyon run. And the FR-S actually uses low-rolling-resistance tires, like those you’d normally find on a hybrid or fuel-economy special, in part to limit overall grip and let the driver toss the tail around a bit.

Persistent rumors of a turbocharged FR-S have not materialized yet and the coupe carries on without any major mechanical modifications. Like its Subaru-badged twin, the FR-S uses a 2.0-liter flat-four engine that makes 200 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 151 foot-pounds of torque at 6,400 rpm.

The 2016 Scion FR-S continues to offer a single engine with a choice of two transmissions. Thanks to its solid, well-tuned chassis, the FR-S is just as fun with the automatic as it is with the standard manual gearbox.

Power isn’t the Scion FR-S’s strong suit or its focus and never has been. Its Subaru-supplied 200-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder horizontally opposed (“Boxer”) engine sits low and rearward in the nose, linked to either a six-speed manual or a paddle-shifted six-speed automatic powering the rear wheels. Maximum torque output is 151 pound-feet, arriving at 400 rpm short of the 7,000-rpm power peak. Neither power nor torque figures are impressive, even for a lightweight sports car. Fortunately, the FR-S is less about straightline speed or acceleration it manages a 6.8-second 0–60 mph time than it is about what it does when the road bends.
