Scion has finally put a price tag on the highly anticipated FR-S sports car ahead of its launch in America, and it reads $24,930, including destination charge and handling. That puts it very close to the Hyundai Genesis Coupe Turbo. It has 74-hp less than the Hyundai though, and less standard equipment, and it doesn’t look just as good. But hey, what if you want a sports car with Toyota badge!
In other news, EPA published official fuel economy rating for the FR-S – well, they did for the Subaru BRZ, but everybody knows the FR-S and BRZ are exactly the same cars. According to that, the 200hp 2.0 liter boxer in the FR-S, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, 22 mpg city, 30 highway and 25 mpg combined. The automatic will use a little bit more. EPA reckons that on the average, refueling the car will cost you between $2,200 to $2500 per year year.
