Is the Price Right? Scion FR-S vs. Subaru BRZ

Elliott Moran
Apr 5, 2012

By now everyone should know the Scion FR-S and the Subaru BRZ are both made in the same factory. Differences between the two cars are relatively minor with the front end and badges being the biggest thing to distinguish the two. Today Subaru announced the pricing for the BRZ so let’s take a look at what you’ll get compared to the Scion FR-S.

Scion FR-S 6-speed: $24,200 MSRP
Subaru BRZ 6-speed: $25,496 MSRP

So what’s really the difference between the two? The FR-S is going to be for the guys who don’t need added bells and whistles; the BRZ will be for the guys who like the added luxuries of a modern car. For $1,295 the BRZ will include Nav and HIDs and if you wanted to spend $3,295 you’ll add on Alcantara heated seats, fog lights, keyless entry and a rear spoiler bringing up the total to $27,495 for the Limited Edition model.

Now that we know the pricing, which model will you go with?

LOOKING BACK AT THE SUPER STREET COROLLA The new 2021 Toyota Corolla is an entry-level car that we’ve had a ton of experience with as we built a 2019 hatchback two years ago. With the help of our friends at Auto Tuned and a rendering by Jon Sibal, we transformed our little XSE into a

Putting down the first few sentences of a feature like this 1987 Honda CRX Si is a little tougher than usual. It’s not the familiar story of picking up an old, used Honda, adding wheels and a drop before giving in and going all out on a full-blown build. Furthermore, to be clear, it’s also

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock. The Nurburgring serves as a standard by which most automakers set their sights. It arms internet debate specialists with numbers and comparisons by
