KBB 2014 Cool Car - Scion FR-S

The Scion FR-S has been named a “cool” car by Kelley Blue Book.

KBB develops the annual consumer resource list to highlight affordable vehicles for all lifestyles that include the “cool” factor. They praised the 2014 FR-S for its rear-wheel drive, lightweight design that allows the driver to feel fully in tune with the car. Even when compared to higher priced vehicles, editors called the FR-S a driver’s car with the style and modern updates to excite those behind the wheel.

“Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com again captures the full experience and affordability of the Scion FR-S with a top spot on its 10 Coolest New Cars Under $25,000 list,” said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha. “Drivers and industry experts continue to tell us the FR-S brings together the style, handling and elusive fun factor that’s needed in this segment and on the roads. We’re happy to deliver.”

The Scion FR-S is priced at $24,700 for a 6-speed manual transmission or $25,800 for the 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters and Dynamic Rev Management® technology. Both versions come standard with Scions’ Display Audio System with a 6.1″ LCD touchscreen, hands-free phone capability, music streaming via Bluetooth and a AUX/USB port with iPod connectivity.
