One look is all you need to know, this car is not built solely for practicality, or economy, or comfort – this car was built for driving excitement. Its flared fender, long, swooping hood line, and aggressive profile all speak to this Scion’s performance potential.
Its low, rear-wheel drive chassis has been specifically built to reward the driver with superb balance and incredible road feel. Advanced MacPherson front struts and double-wishbone rear suspension means sharp handing and total confidence at any speed. Even the steering column has been aligned to 16-degrees for optimal road feel.
Inside, you can find a simple driver-centric layout with a purposeful three-spoke steering wheel and racy bucket seats. Your feet will be happy too, with sporty aluminum pedals to rest against. In spite of its priority to driving thrills, the FR-S still indulges its driver with conveniences like a 7-inch touchscreen, a rear-view camera, and an 8-speaker sound system amongst other items. The backseat is large enough for small children, or more likely, a set of racing tires.
Put it all together and you have a lightweight vehicle that offers a better driving experience than any of its rivals. The Scion is over a $1000 less expensive than a Golf GTi, and more than $3000 cheaper than a Focus ST. Its rear-wheel drive chassis also allows for a purer driving experience than the front-wheel drive Ford Fiesta ST. The FR-S also comes fully loaded, unlike its rivals which charge more for performance options.
The final advantage the Scion holds is its heavy OEM performance support. Scion offers a huge variety of parts and accessories to increase your FR-S’ performance; from lowering kits to sway bars and performance exhausts, Scion offers and installs everything you want without voiding your warranty (a huge advantage its rivals don’t share).
So if you’re from Edmonton, St. Albert, Spruce Grove, Sherwood Park, or Stony Plain and you’re looking for an affordable yet exciting ride, then come to Mayfield Toyota to find the 2016 Scion FR-S coupe. We also carry numerous low-mileage FR-S’ from 2015 and earlier.
