Scion FR-S Test Drive & Driving Impressions
Experience the new Scion FR-S from the driver's seat.
I took a test drive the other day and filmed my impressions so my
girlfriend could get a feel for the car. She just got her wisdom teeth
taken out and wasn't in any shape to go on a test drive so I came to her
rescue and made this video of the experience.
Shameless plug: If you're local, around SE Michigan, be sure to ask for
Jamar Daniels at Victory Toyota of Canton, MI for information &
availability on the Scion FR-S. Had a great experience with him, he was
very helpful and generous with his time.
1. It has four wheels, which seemed very round when I inspected them.
2. Doors with which to enter and leave the car (you don't have to enter
through the windows or the top or bottom of the vehicle)
3. While driving the car, there is a round knob (though not as round as the
wheels) that controls the wind inside the car. The wind can be a mild
breeze, or a vicious tsunami blowing from little holes in the front
console. It can be cool or warm, and you can direct the wind. It makes you
feel very powerful.
4. There is also another button that lets you listen to people talking and
singing in the car, I believe Jamar called this a radio. This device only
allows for listening, and is therefore a one-way conversation. I tried
talking back to the people in the "radio" and they either couldn't hear me
or didn't feel like responding. I imagine they have a lot of people trying
to talk to them through the "radio." If you don't have a lot of friends and
want someone who never stops talking, this radio device is probably a good
thing for you to order.
5. The cloth seats have a red stripe on them. I assume that this is
probably from the animal's skin that was used to make them. The red stripe
tells me that the animal was fierce and vicious, trying to warn its
predators of it's danger with a warning color, much like bees and the
yellow jackets they wear. However, it mustn't have been a match for the
Scion hunters, as I hear many FR-S's are filled with seats made from this
In short, the FR-S makes me feel like an ancient hunting warrior that can
control wind, talk to spirits, and chase down fast dangerous animals.
Enjoy the video, I hope you find it helpful in your quest of filling the
empty void in your heart with a lightweight rear wheel drive sports coupe.

2013 Ford Mustang vs Scion FR-S Mashup Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 V6 Ford Mustang and the 2013 Scion FR-S don't
compete directly. The Mustang has 2 more cylinders, 105
more horses and weights about 700 more pounds. However, in two important
ways they compete: 1) Price and 2) the Fun to drive factor. In fact, we
would not be surprised if drivers crossed shopped the two very different
cars. Which of course begs the question....which one is better? In this
video review we mashup the established American Icon with the much heralded
Japanese new comer to decide which car is the better?

2013 Scion FR-S Review - Kelley Blue Book
Known as the Toyota 86 or GT-86 in foreign markets, the Scion FR-S (along
with its close sibling the Subaru BRZ) is the product of a close
collaboration between Subaru and Toyota. Years in the making the FR-S is
specifically engineered to deliver thrilling rear-drive performance at a
modest price. KBB's Micah Muzio had an opportunity to drift the FR-S, test
it at the race track and experience it on the streets to see if it lives up
to the hype. Spoiler alert, it does.
