Scion FR-S pricing


The US version of the Toyota GT 66 will start at $24 200. Before destination charges.
The Automatic will add about $1100.

The FR-S is a compact RWD coupe with 200hp.
Here are a few things you can get for about the same price:

-2013 Mustang V6 with 305hp: $22 995
-2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe with 274hp: $25 125
-2012 Chevrolet Camaro V6 with 323hp: $24 180

Just a few things to think about. I also remember when Toyota announced they were working on a small RWD. Something they said could cost around $20 000.
I guess they missed by about $4000.

Good luck...

That is a tough sell especially at the Scion (Saturn) no haggle price, yeah good luck.

I saw both the Scion and Subaru versions of this car at the LA Auto Show. All I have to say is BORING! This Scion should have come out 10 years ago.

Forgetting one thing naysayers. It's all about the DRIVE. LIGHT WEIGHT AND NIMBLE. Seems no one enjoys a great drive anymore. The cars mentioned above, well....nimble and a great drive they are not. Too heavy. I applaud what Toyota and Subaru have done here. Can't wait to get behind the wheel. No automatic thank you.

The price is too high and the car is tiny!

Genesis Coupe 2.0T or Mustang V6 for me if I had to chose a vehicle such as this under $28K.

I saw this at the DC autoshow and it wasn't impressive in the least. Even my best friend who is a fanboy walked away disappointed.

It is tiny and has absolutely nothing interesting about the design. The only thing it has going for it is its extremely light weight.

A car for shampoo girls and secretaries. It's the modern-day Celica.

like the previous NIMBLE comment, the lower center of gravity is what is lacking in the camaro / mustange ride.

Not cheap and not pretty...no thank you.

This thing was designed for the lower center of gravity. It is designed for the pure driving dynamic. Secretaries don't care about that. Driving enthusiasts do. Calling this car a secretaries car, takes away your driving enthusiast card. Like you ever had one. LOL

Modern day Celica?

Really? It takes over 7 seconds 0-60mph. It's a tiny 2dr "sporty" car. It's hideously ugly.

I don't care which wheels propel the car forward, it's a damn Celica.
