Scion Tweaks FR-S for 2016, Announces Pricing

I am a big fan of the Scion FR-S and its twin the Subaru BR-Z. The only real downside to these cars for me is that they are rather expensive for what you get and they need more power. You can get a base WRX for about the same price and the WRX is more desirable in my eyes.

Scion has made some subtle changes to the FR-S for the 2016 model that bumps the price up slightly, but adds in some new features as standard. The new features include a 7-inch screen for the infotainment system, voice control, and shiny silver trim inside. The car also gets a backup camera.


The cost of these goodies is a base price bumped up by $405. Nothing else has changed on the car, but a couple new color options bow in for 2016 including an Oceanic blue and the red you see here called Ablaze. I’d love to see them┬ádrop the starting price to somewhere around $23,000 for a base manual and add about 50 more horses┬áto the mix.
