Scion's first real sports car, the 2013 FR-S, is a collaboration between Subaru and Toyota. This unlikely partnership combines the strengths of both automakers, including a boxer engine and a rear-wheel-drive setup. The FR-S is a remarkable handler, but acceleration is lacking, according to Cars.com Editor Joe Bruzek.
2013 Subaru BRZ
The Subaru BRZ is not only a great-looking sports car loaded with available
features, but it's also a remarkably fun, well-balanced coupe. However,
it's got a tiny backseat and overall firm ride, as well as a $1,300 price
premium over its twin, the Scion FR-S. Is it worth it? Cars.com reviewer
Joe Wiesenfelder takes a close look at one of today's true affordable
sports cars and explains why the answer is yes.
2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe gets some significant powertrain upgrades on
its four- and six-cylinder engines, but it's on the four-cylinder that the
mechanical changes make the most difference, according to Cars.com Editor
Joe Bruzek. The added power -- along with the suspension improvements --
make the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T a compelling option against the
likes of the new Scion FR-S and Subaru BR-Z, Bruzek says.
2012 Hyundai Tucson
The Hyundai Tucson has been on sale for nearly three years, and in that
time, a slew of new competitors have entered the compact crossover segment.
While the Tucson is certainly stylish and nice to drive, its harsh ride and
cramped interior left Cars.com Senior Editor Bill Jackson unimpressed.
2012 $25K Compact SUV Shootout
The compact SUV market remains one of the most competitive in the industry,
so a lot has changed since the last time we did a Shootout. More than a
year ago, options like Bluetooth connectivity and a backup camera were
expensive, but today, they're either standard or inexpensive additions. In
our last comparison, the Chevrolet Equinox was the king of the hill. With
three new or redesigned contenders that all get 30 mpg or higher on the
highway -- the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5 and Ford Escape -- can the Equinox
keep its crown?

is a hoot to drive both on the race track and on the road. Check out this
first drive review as we put the new 2013 Scion FR-S to the test on both
the road and racetrack just outside of Las Vegas Nevada

I finally got my 2013 Scion FR-S!!! It's an amazing car, 6 speed manual
gearbox, Torsen LS rear differential, and the BeSpoke audio upgrade! The
car is perfect for me, seeing how it was the only one the dealership had,
in the exact color I wanted, with the exact transmission I wanted, with the
exact radio I wanted! Sounds like a sign to me lol. So we bought it and I
love it, er, I mean her! Still trying to give her a name... Hmm.....
Anyways, enjoy looking at her!

2013 Subaru BRZ vs Scion FR-S 0-60 MPH Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The almost identical 2013 Subaru BRZ and the 2013
Scion FR-S herald the return of the light and affordable rear-wheel drive
sports car. Jointly developed by Toyota and Subaru there's very little that
separates the two twins except for minor suspension differences. But since
both cars can be purchased as with either an automatic transmission or a
manual one we of course want to know which one is faster to 60 @1 mile above sea level...the
automatic Subaru BRZ or the 6-speed manual Scion FR-S? Check out this fun
TFLcar Mashup Review to find out.

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?
