New 2017 Scion FR-S is a Toyota vehicle that was first introduced 13 years ago. 2017 model will be available as coupe and for the first time as a convertible.
Exterior and Interior
The body of coupe version of 2017 Scion FR-S will maintain its aggressive look, while convertible will be introduced in 2017 model for the first time. Plenty of aerodynamic features with plenty of curves will positively affect fuel efficiency. Use of lightweight materials will lead to overall weight loss. The exterior design will have some changes in terms of newly looked front grille and LED headlights. Tail lights will be quite up from the ground.
Inside of the cabin of 2017 Scion FR-S will provide a sense of comfort and pleasure for all of the passengers who will have sufficient legroom. Premium soft touch materials will be used for upholstering. So far, no information about what to expect of infotainment features was revealed. Yet, we believe that only premium components will be used. As of safety features, the passengers will be protected by a system of 10 airbags (front, knee and side). Active front headrests will be offered as well, as well as collision warning system and many more.
Under the hood of 2017 Scion FR-S there will be the same engine as in previous year’s model, but with upgraded performances. Therefore, we might expect 2.0 liter inline-four cylinder engine. That one has capacity to develop 200 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. Transmission system mated to this engine will remain sic speed automatic or manual and with AWD. The acceleration rate which reflects the time needed for a vehicle to reach from 0 to 60 mpg is 5.9 seconds. EPA ratings haven’t been revealed yet, but we expect improved fuel efficiency as a result of some upgrades of the exhaust system and air intakes.
All of those previously mention refers to a coupe. Convertible is expected to have more powerful output of approximately 300 hp and a RWD.
Some rumors suggest that a hybrid version might be available as well, but we have to wait for the official statements.
