MPGomatic.com puts a 2013 Scion FR-S to a grueling 300+ mile test drive. The 2013 Scion FR-S is powered by a direct and sequential multi-port fuel injected DOHC 2.0-liter Boxer (horizontally opposed) four-cylinder engine - codeveloped by Toyota and Subaru - that produces 200 horsepower (HP) and 151 foot pounds of torque. The rear-wheel-drive (RWD) FR-S is available with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. We tested the six-speed automatic version. Of course, we'd prefer to drive the six-speed manual, but you gotta take what you can get, when you can get it. This review video features an alternate 0-60 MPH run that drops the time into the mid-sevens.
