The 2019 Scion FR-S will be mix of a luxury and sports design upcoming. A top Toyota executive has provided insight into what we can expect from the updated Scion FR-S. The update will cover every single part of the car. Some rumors appeared, and spy shots have been out. This concept has been a secret for some while, and we will see how Toyota and its brands officials will react to larger interest for the 2019 Scion FR-S.
2019 Scion FR-S Exterior and Interior Design
The close relationship with the Subaru BRZ reportedly rules out any dramatic changes to the styling for this update. For starters, the coupe will be given a minor facelift that will bring a new front bumper with a revised air dam as well as new-look lights on both ends. However, the coupe is still likely to wear a new hood with vents in it and a revised fascia with a larger lower grille. At the rear, expect a rear diffuser and exhaust pipes at the corners. Certain markets will be able to order a carbon fiber roof panel at an extra cost, though whether the option will be offered in the United States isn’t known at this point.
While minor compared to all of these rumored updates, Scion recently gave the FR-S a few tweaks. Car will boast much more room in second row, but both materials and cabin configuration will remain the same. Of course, mid-cycle refresh might be the thing to change some of this, but we can’t yet speculate upon this. 2019 Scion FR-S sedan is supposed to be a fine sporty option with lots of features. In addition to some new colors and interior trim, it now comes standard with a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system and rearview camera. As for safety features, they generally include only basic options, but sedans might get additional electronic systems like a rearview camera and lane-departure warnings.
2019 Scion FR-S Release Date and Price
The car may continue advertising and marketing during early 2019 as a design then. It’s possible we’ll see a reveal as early as next year’s Tokyo Motor Show. Regarding the expenditures, the base 2019 Scion FR-S is intended to expense about $25,000 when the sedan release definitely expenses approx $30,000 for the coupe variation.
2019 Scion FR-S Powertrain and Performance
After a few fresh information from the inside sources it appears that the sedan will be provided with a couple of powerplant options. But again, output is not the FR-S’s best dancing shoe. The engine is mated to either a 6 speed manual gearbox or a 6 speed automatic transmission. This engine is a 2.0 liter boxer-four engine that delivers a total of 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. Details on its fuel economy are not yet out but due to its reduced curb weight and modifications on the engine, the automaker estimates that 2019 Scion FR-S will deliver an improved fuel economy.
