All-New Scion FR-S Coming Soon to Conicelli Scion

The Conicelli Scion auto dealerships of Conshohocken and Springfield, Pennsylvania, are pleased to announce the availability of the highly-awaited 2013 Scion FR-S, which is expected to arrive in June.

The 2013 Scion FR-S, an entirely new high performance sports car, is the fifth model to join the Scion family.

Inspired by the Toyota AE86 (also known as the Corolla GT-S), the FR-S is designed around the core goal of achieving "Pure Balance," beginning with the use of the world's only front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration using a flat boxer engine, which means a lower center of gravity than other engine types.

The goal was to create an authentic rear-wheel drive sports car with compelling style, exceptionally balanced performance and handling, flexible utility and surprising MPG. The FR-S is expected to achieve all of that in a package that will no doubt bring the sport back to the car.

Some of the great standard features on FR-S include:

  • 2 liter, 200 horsepower, naturally aspirated four-cylinder boxer engine
  • Toyota's cutting edge D-4S injection system with direct and port injection
  • 6-speed manual transmission that offers quick precise shifts with a short throw or
  • 6-speed automatic transmission with rev-match and steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters
  • torque sensing limited-slip differential
  • 17-inch alloy wheels and ventilated disc brakes
The FR-S interior cockpit instantly exudes a sports car feel. The front racing-style seats are shaped to accommodate manual shifting and support longitudinal and lateral G-force. The leather-wrapped 3-spoke sports steering wheel, utilizes the smallest diameter in the Scion lineup.

The idea of pure balance is further realized by FR-S's lightweight design and compact size. This allows the car to be quick and nimble into and out of corners. This combination is further proof that Scion is truly bringing the sport back to the car.

The FR-S will be available in seven colors including Raven, Asphalt, Hot Lava, Argento, Ultramarine, Firestorm and Whiteout.
