Driving the 2014 Scion FRS

Taken as a complete package, the FRS is one of the best cars I’ve ever driven. It’s the kind of car where – either you ‘get it’, or you don’t.

By: Jonathan Wooley and Yousef Alvi This car, like the IS, has a button on the console for Eco/Normal/Sport/Sport+. It’s not a dummy-button.
