The upcoming 2017 Scion FR-S will likely be mix of a high end and sports design. What connects Toyota GT 86, Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S? Everything. These are simply the same cars under different nameplates, and designed for different markets.
All turn out to be 2-door sports coupes, but U.S. marketplace is supposed to get another variation, and North America is Scion’s playground. 2017 Scion FR-S sedan will be the first new body addition for the lineup, even beating convertibles to your second place.
2017 Scion FR-S Engine range
Apart through the base boxer 2.0L 4-cylinder engine the gift from Subaru, FR-S sedan is designed to be offered with hybrid powertrain to locate the lineup. These are fantastic news for most people that anticipate owning the auto, but weren’t willing to jump on account of boxer engine’s low torque production of 151 lb-ft (even though the vehicle exhibits respectable 200 ponies).
Apart from internal combustion engine, hybrid powertrain will contain additional electric motor which, together, are expected to put up around 250 hp and other torque output. Needless to say, Front engine, Rear-wheel drive and Sporty performance remain untouched, that’s just the thing FR-S nameplate needs.
Design – Inside and Outside look
Just such as the coupe, 2017 Scion FR-S sedan is expected to receive the sleek, sporty look with many different touches about the back. For starters, it is going to feature some four inches longer wheelbase, but this won’t change its midsection a lot of. Open-mouth lower air intake and toned down nose with sharp headlamps and foglight inserts will probably be carried over.
Slightly flared fenders continue to feature at the same time, while another pair of doors is expected to prolong the arching roofline. Finally, overhang round the back is expected to be longer, but general finish will almost certainly remain a similar.
Interior shouldn’t be changed a lot of. Of course, car will boast considerably more room in second row, but both materials and cabin configuration will stay. Of course, mid-cycle refresh might be the thing to alter some of this, but we can’t yet speculate upon this. 2017 Scion FR-S sedan is likely to be a good sporty option with many different features, which, however are meant to be fully customizable. That’s operate goes with Scion, in fact.
Apart from touchscreen display display and connectivity options, expect heated front seats, eight speakers, paddle shifters and air conditioning unit among other available choices. As for security measures, many of them include only basic options, but sedans may get additional electronic systems being a rearview camera and lane-departure warnings.
2017 Scion FR-S Price and MPG
Depending on transmission option, expect fuel economy ratings between 25 and 28 mpg along with base 4-cylinder engine. On the other hand, hybrid models are designed to offer up to 15 percent better fuel economy which doesn’t look like much, having said that that their performance is more effective too. $25,000 should remain the starting price even for sedans, but hybrid sedans should reach $35,000 and even $40,000.
2017 Scion FR-S sedan is meant to be an excellent substitute for some iconic Japanese cars which don’t exist anymore (Nissan Silvia, Mazda RX-8 and Honda S2000). Moreover, it lets you fit four persons and serve as commuter, too as roadster.
