2013 Scion FR-S in N Charlotte is road ready!
At Toyota of N Charlotte, we can't even begin to explain the anticipation that was built up behind this new Scion. While it's a brand new model for 2013, it's already gaining many fans. This new Scion near Charlotte has already started taking home the awards! The 2013 Scion FR-S was named the Coolest New Car under $25,000 by Kelley Blue Book; it was given Cars.com's Best of 2013 Award and it was given a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Need we say more?
2013 Scion FR-S is an everyday drive!
When Scion created this model, the goal wasn't to create a collector's item. It was to create a car that could be driven 365 days a year and Scion delivered. The N Charlotte Scion FR-S is a rear-wheel drive sports car, with a tight suspension that lends itself to fun out on the open road. Before we go any further, here are the specifications:
- A front-mounted 4-cylinder flat boxer engine
- 200 horsepower and 151-pound feet of torque
- A 6-speed transmission available in either automatic or manual
- Front suspension, MacPherson strut; rear suspension, double wishbone
We can attest that this is a fun car to drive, and the performance has been the basis behind many of the awards. Part of the reason the 2013 Scion FR-S performs so well is also the curb weight. Scion kept it as light as possible, resulting in a sporty ride. The curb weight is only around 2,700 pounds and with rear-wheel drive, you have plenty of control for better maneuvering.
Keep in mind, the 2013 Scion FR-S was co-developed by Subaru and Scion, so you're getting the best in performance with the best of the standard features Scion has to offer! It's a win-win for everyone!
Don't forget about the features!
