The new sports car from Scion looks good and eats up turns with pure gluttony. Cabin tech is solid at the base level, and gets downright intriguing with Scion's new Bespoke upgrade.
When Toyota decided to bring a sports car back into its model lineup, it codeveloped the project with Subaru, resulting in a very fine-handling car with three different names. In the U.S., this car is called the Scion FR-S, while in other markets it goes by Toyota GT-86. Subaru also markets its own version of the car under the name BRZ.
Designers hit the nail on the head with the body, making a no-nonsense sports coupe. The grille sits low and the fender bulges are slight, while headlight casings are simple and integrated well into the front of the car.
The engine shows plenty of Subaru DNA with its flat-four style. Toyota added a hybrid direct- and port-injection fuel delivery system. This engine makes a modest 200 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque.
