(TORONTO, ON – December 4, 2015) Drivers of the 2016 Scion FR-S Release Series 2.0 will look better than ever in the most stylish version of the sports car ever offered. The new FR-S Release Series 2.0 comes with luxurious appointments and premium features, and with a limited production of just 1,000 units – only 150 of those in Canada, it will be one of the most sought after Scion Release Series yet.
The interior creates the lap of luxury with heated seats in black Alcantara and leather with camel-coloured accents. The same black and camel theme continues to the leather-trimmed steering wheel while the shift knob and parking brake lever are wrapped in black leather. Camel trim also appears on the door armrest and the upper door trim while the centre armrest and knee pads are bold in black. Camel accent stitching is prominent throughout the interior and the Release Series badge can be found embroidered on the dash, sequentially numbered from 1 to 1000.
Additional luxury features include the Smart key with push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, and HID headlamps with LED daylight running lamps.
On the outside, the Release Series 2.0 will make a statement with Lunar Storm paint and unique 17-inch forged alloy wheels. For added flair and distinction, a unique aero kit features spoilers on both the front lip and trunk.
“The FR-S already turns heads with its authentic, track-ready performance. With the Release Series 2.0, we’re giving the FR-S a boost of luxury without any sacrifice to driving fun,” said Cyril Dimitris, Director of Scion Canada. “Whether it’s a day at the track or a night on the town, this Scion is sporty, sophisticated - and very exclusive.”
The 2016 FR-S Release Series 2.0 is offered in either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and Dynamic Rev Management® technology. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) will be $32,800 for the manual transmission and $33,980 for the automatic transmission.
