The 2017 Scion FRS is a sports 2 + 2 made by Scion. The 2017 Scion FRS and the 2017 Subaru BRZ are both derived from the 2017 Toyota 86 base. Scion FR-S is one of the three derivatives of the Toyota 86 base, with the other derivative is the Subaru BRZ. The FR-S is mainly found in North America and Canada, being that Scion is a subsidiary of Toyota that produces vehicles exclusively for the North American market. The name of the FR-S is derived from a description of the platform: Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive, Sport. The FR-S, 86 and BRZ are all powered by a 2.0 L 4U-GSE/FA20 naturally aspirated boxer motor. The Scion FR-S, Toyota 86 and the Subaru BRZ are inspired by the original Toyota AE86 because cars are retro style cars. The Scion FR-S 2017 model is a mid-range D-class car and the Japanese car of lower performance in the game.
The Scion FR-S has an initial range of 684, a maximum range of 995, and a final range of 1091. Scion FRS acceleration is greatly aided by a powerful nitro of moderate duration. The FR-S, which is a small vehicle, has a very good handling but is quite suspicious of randomly out-of-control skidding and wreckage, especially on tracks such as Venice and Tokyo. The maximum speed of the FR-S gives the edge above most mid-range class D cars. In general, the Scion FR-S is a well-rounded vehicle. The FR-S is a good car to use in the Rookie D Class Cup.
The 2017 Scion FRS is exclusive to the United States and Canada. The FRS name derives from a description of the platform: Front-engine, Rear-wheel drive, Sport. Dissimilar all other 86 models, the FR-S originally had no trim levels and all are offered with Scion’s BeSpoke stereo system. As part of the 10th anniversary of the Scion brand, 2,500 units of the “10 Series” FR-S models were launched by Scion for the 2014 model year. They were painted in Silver Ignition and equipped with additional equipment including HID headlamps, Temperature, starter button, illuminated outer badges plus potentiometer.
In January 2014, Scion launched 2000 units of the FR Series series “Monogram Series” adding additional features at special prices. In this case, this FR-S is closely adjusted to the equipment offered in the BRZ with the following elements, heated leather and Alcantara seats, Heated side mirrors, High-intensity discharge lamps, Double zone climate control, BeSpoke audio, and navigation. The cost $27,400 and the US $28,500, respectively, for the manual or automatic transmission model. This limited edition was said to represent a savings of US $1,900 on separate price options.
2017 Scion FRS Limited Edition
Presented at the New York Motor Show in April 2014 and reflecting the special European editions “Giallo” and “Limited Edition” painted yellow, Scion launched 1500 units of the “Release Series 1.0” in similar Yuzu Yellow paint. Its starting price is $31,000 and features TRD body kit and four-point exhaust system along with TRD lowered suspension, TRD steering wheel and gearshift lever and the highest specification plus a numbered commemorative plate near the shift lever. Due to discontinuation of the Scion brand, in August 2016 the 2017 Scion FRS re-branded as the Toyota 86 for the 2017 model year.
