An all-new entry from Toyota's specialty Scion brand, the FR-S will remind you of a simpler time when sporty coupes were light, agile, and driven by their rear wheels. Speaking of simplicity, there are no factory options except for an automatic transmission, although buyers can select certain accessories at the dealer.
A 2-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower is sufficient to give the little fastback spirited performance. The interior is simple but functional, a daring move in this age of color displays and touchscreens. On the outside, you get classic sports car looks for surprisingly little money. The FR-S is the product of a joint venture with Suburu, which markets the same car under the name BRZ.
