TORONTO, ON., (Dec. 5, 2012) – The Scion FR-S earned recognition today from Car and Driver, the world's largest automotive publication, as part of its “10Best” cars of 2013. The magazine highlights the best cars for under $80,000 available on showroom floors in January 2013. Scion introduced the FR-S earlier this year to positive industry reviews and consumer excitement. The FR-S shares its spot on the list with the Subaru BRZ.
“We are honoured to have the Scion FR-S named by Car and Driver Magazine as one of the “10Best” cars of 2013.” said Larry Hutchinson, Senior Executive Director, Toyota Canada Inc. “The FR-S is a great example of what we’re achieving with the Scion brand – stylish, fun-to-drive and customizable."
The FR-S features a lightweight design and 2.0-liter flat boxer engine capable of producing an impressive 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. Affordability and performance have made the FR-S a fast favourite since it arrived in Canadian showrooms in June.
The 2013 Car and Driver 10Best awards list and FR-S commentary will be featured in the January issue, on newsstands today and online here.
