The Car Guide rating 73%(view ratings)
The fruit of a partnership between Toyota and Subaru, the Scion FR-S revived the small sports car segment. Its architecture – a front-mounted engine and rear-wheel drive – was perfected by Toyota, while Subaru took care of the 2.0-litre horizontally opposed 4-cylinder that deploys 200 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque. The FR-S can be equipped with a short-throw 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic.
