Rank #6: 2013 Scion FR-S Review

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

MPGomatic.com puts a six-speed manual 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo to a grueling 500+ mile test drive. We switched things up a bit with this review, and have included a demo of the Blue Max and Eco-Coach features along with our usual 0-60 MPH and fuel economy testing. It's in HD, as well. :) Big screen and Big MPGs, woo hoo! The Hyundai Veloster Turbo is equipped with a turbocharged 16-valve Dual-CVVT 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine producing 201 horsepower and 195 pound feet of torque. The intercooled and gasoline direct-injected (GDI) four banger cranks out more than sixty HP and seventy pound feet of torque over the naturally-aspirated 2012 Veloster we tested earlier this year. A six-speed manual transmission is standard in the Veloster Turbo, while a six-speed automatic is optional. 2013 Veloster Turbo M/T MSRP: $23,950 Options: Ultimtate Package - $2,500 Carpeted Floor Mats - $95 Michelin Pilot Super Sport 215/40ZR18 Summer Tires - $1,200 Inland Freight and Handling - $775 MSRP including options: $26,520 More MPGomatic ...
