Welcome to Ken Shaw Toyota, your certified Toyota dealership in Toronto, Ontario. We are presenting the new 2016 Scion FR-S by Toyota. You can find all the relevant information below. Enjoy!
The Scion FR-S comes loaded with great features like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, sports seats and dual exhaust — all in a value-packed sports car with track-ready style.
The exterior of the FR-S balances strength with sensual sophistication. The profile, inspired by the Toyota 2000GT, reveals a sleek hood and roofline, punctuated by the aggressive shark fin antennae. For 2016 FR-S comes equipped with two bold new colours, Oceanic and Ablaze.
A low stance exaggerates a menacing face - made up of sharp lines, a wide mouth and angular headlights. The coupe’s aggressive front fenders protrude upward. From the rear view, the fascia sits low and wide, with aerodynamic lower treatments that surround the sporty dual exhaust system. LEDs illuminate the edgy taillights, while centre-mounted backup lights complete the muscular design.
Form is enhanced by function, with key components designed specifically for FR-S, including a highly rigid lightweight body, aluminum hood, resin fuel tank, lightweight aluminum wheels, and a trunk instead of a hatch. These efforts help to keep its weight under 1,300 kg.
Flared fenders evoke a sense of agility and sophistication while drawing the eye to the front and rear 17" alloy wheels and performance tires. Even when viewed in the side mirrors from the driver’s seat, the rear fender appears stately.
Ignite your passion for the drive. The FR-S cockpit re-introduces its sport sensibility, with new ornamentation of the steering wheel bezel. Slide into the driver's seat and you'll feel a deep connection to the road thanks to the extremely low-to-the-ground seat position, with an incredibly low hip point of only 400 mm.
With a 2+2 seating configuration, FR-S is designed for both form and function. The front seats are comfortable yet assertive – keeping you firmly in the seat regardless of your driving style. The rear seats can be folded flat, creating enough space for your golf clubs or, more likely, your racing tires.
From the driver's seat, you have a clear view of the road ahead. Navigate effortlessly through the night, with the helpful automatic headlamp system. Soft padding along the top of the instrument panel reduces glare from the windows. The three gauge cluster focuses on the large centre-mounted tachometer. Speed is monitored by both digital and analog gauges. Even the rear view mirror – a frameless design – aims to eliminate obstructions and improve visibility.
The perfectly circular steering wheel, with a diameter of only 365 mm, offers exceptional grip and excellent turning performance. Even the steering column has been tuned to an optimal angle, 16 degrees, for smooth steering.
Put the pedal to the metal. Aluminum pedals increase both the sporty feel and ease of operation.
The "monospec" Scion trim means that FR-S comes loaded with a range of comfort and convenience features, including: air conditioning, 8-speaker Display Audio System, an all-new rear view camera, two 12-volt power outlets, keyless entry, variable-intermittent front windshield wipers and basics, like 2 cup holders in the console and 2 water bottle slots in the doors.
What's in a name? FR-S stands for Front engine, Rear wheel drive, Sports. That says it all. Rear wheel drive (RWD) means that the back wheels propel the vehicle forward while the front wheels are used for steering, whereas, in front wheel drive vehicles, the front wheels are used for both. By separating the driving power and steering functions in a RWD configuration, the steering ability is maximized providing greater agility and responsiveness.
The FR-S features a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder boxer engine, developed in collaboration with Subaru. It combines Subaru’s horizontally opposed engine and Toyota's cutting edge D-4S injection system that incorporates both port injection and direct injection. The system enhances torque at low engine speeds, increases maximum output, and reduces fuel consumption. Natural aspiration ensures the best possible acceleration response. Partnered with a 12.5:1 compression ratio, the system results in an impressive estimated 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque.
Also inspired by Toyota's iconic AE86, the FR-S is designed to achieve, "Pure Balance". It uses a boxer engine in a front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration. The engine’s compact size and flat shape allow it to be centre-mounted, between the front and rear wheel axles, creating an extremely low centre of gravity. The resulting front-to-rear weight ratio enables the driver to shift load between the front and back by simply applying the accelerator or brake pedals. The product: an extremely responsive vehicle that obediently answers the commands of the driver.
The idea of "Pure Balance" is further realized by FR-S's lightweight design and compact size, allowing the car to be quick and nimble into and out of corners, with dynamic maneuverability and confident handling. The coupe's weight is kept to a minimum by using an aluminum hood and a solid roof, and by featuring a trunk design instead of a hatchback.
Low weight is matched with a dynamically tuned suspension setup consisting of MacPherson struts up front and a double wishbone system in the rear. Lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels and ventilated disc brakes are on all four corners.
A great sports car must provide agile handling at mid-speeds and exceptional straight-line stability at high speeds. The FR-S delivers both – and optimizes fuel consumption. The force of the airflow above, below and to the sides of the FR-S body is controlled and used to stabilize the vehicle. This innovation enables the weight of the vehicle to remain low while optimizing responsiveness.
Depending on your preference, the flat-four engine is mated with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. The manual offers quick, precise shifts with a short-throw; while the automatic features aggressive upshifts and sporty rev-matched downshifts initiated by steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Power is transferred to the pavement via a limited-slip differential.
With FR-S, safety is not compromised for performance. Standard safety features include six airbags, a tire pressure monitoring system, specially designed front seats and Scion’s Star Safety System.TM
FR-S features six airbags help to keep you safe: dual stage driver & passenger airbags, front seat mounted side airbags and front & rear side curtain airbags.
The advanced vehicle stability control system has 5 modes that can be changed to suit both driver's preferences and driving conditions. And a limited slip differential function is standard, ensuring stability when starting off and accelerating, without hindering driving performance.
Integrated and active safety features are standard in the FR-S. Designed to both protect occupants and prevent accidents, Scion's Star Safety SystemTM includes features such as smart stop technology, vehicle stability control, anti-lock brake system, traction control, electronic brake force distribution and brake assist. See Star SafetyTM in action.
Improper tire pressure can seriously impact both safety and fuel efficiency. FR-S features the tire pressure monitoring system that lets you know if any of your tires are below optimal inflation.
The front passenger & driver sports seats have been designed to help prevent whiplash in the case of a collision. Rearward pressure from the occupant's body is suppressed by the frame, simultaneously restraining the head and chest to help lessen whiplash injuries.
Security is non-negotiable. FR-S caters to your preferred level of protection with features such as the engine immobilizer, key remind and door ajar warnings.
There's nothing quite like the sound of high performance audio while cruising in your performance ride. FR-S gives you that and more. In addition to Bluetooth® and 8 speakers, every 2016 FR-S comes standard with a 7" Touch-screen Pioneer Display Audio System.
Stay focused on the agile, responsive drive – FR-S is Bluetooth® ready. Connect your smart phone or other Bluetooth® device through the Pioneer Audio System for convenient, hands-free calling.
Immerse yourself in the ultimate audio experience. FR-S features eight precisely positioned speakers, including tweeters, instrument panel speakers, and a woofer in each door and rear quarter speakers. The front and rear speakers are mounted high, creating a powerful, unified sound. Tweak your audio settings to customize your music to exactly the way you like it.
