2013 Scion FR-S
The FR-S is one of the most fun inexpensive sport cars available. Its handling invites true driver engagement sure to get you grinning as you pilot it through the turns. Its modest power makes it an excellent street car, good for weekend exploration. Take it to the office and your co-workers will be asking for lunchtime rides.
The good: The 2013 Scion FR-S handles beautifully, with extremely well-tuned suspension and steering gear. Digital audio sources include HD Radio, Bluetooth streaming, iPod, and USB drive.
The bad: Low torque leads to mild starts and not much thrust out of a turn. The available Bespoke head unit only integrates apps and navigation with the iPhone 4 or better.
The bottom line: The 2013 Scion FR-S is a fun sports car, excellent in the turns but lacking big thrust, while the cabin tech upgrade looks intriguing for iPhone users.
