Scion Releases FR-S Pricing

Well, it had to do it sometime. Production has already kicked off and the Scion FR-S should be in dealerships within about two months. In fact, first buyers have already gotten the chance to reserve one. So the only thing left to know is how much it will cost. Scion recently released US pricing for the FR-S.

The Scion FR-S is the North American version of Toyota Motor Company's sports car built in cooperation with Subaru. Toyota will sell the car as the 86 or GT 86, but will offer it through the Scion brand in North America. Subaru will sell its own version of the car called the BRZ. All models are being built at Subaru's Gunma plant.

The Scion FR-S starts at $24,200, putting an end to speculation as to its pricing. With the $730 delivery fee, the model is still just below $25,000. The car was originally envisioned as a ~$20K model, a price point that may yet inspire a smaller sports car, but reports changed to mid-$20s years ago. The $24,200 is right around the $25K mark rumored for the Subaru BRZ, which has yet to be officially priced.

The $24,200 price is for the FR-S equipped with a six-speed manual transmission; the six-speed automatic version starts at $25,300.

Scion talks about the lightweight design of the FR-S in its press release but still doesn't list a curb weight. The "curb weight" box on the FR-S' spec sheet on Scion's website remains empty.

With production underway, FR-S deliveries should get rolling by May. The car will come in seven colors: Raven, Asphalt, Hot Lava, Argento, Ultramarine, Firestorm and Whiteout.
