Scion FR-S outruns Mazda Miata

FR-S offers more power, better fuel-economy

NAPERVILLE, Ill., March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Scion FR-S has continued to impress reviewer after reviewer. Not only has it been praised for several model years as being one of the most affordable high-performance coupes on the road. In addition to that, the 2014 Scion FR-S has the chops to take on other popular coupes like the 2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata. Anybody who has been around cars for any length of time can see the appeal of the Miata. It's light and quick and delivers a fairly upscale driving experience. However, when someone directly compares the 2014 Scion FR-S vs. the 2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata, there is no contest. The FR-S offers everything the Miata does, but with more of everything.


Under the hood of the 2014 Scion FR-S, available at Scion of Naperville is a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder "Boxer" engine that can produce 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that features rev-matching technology to allow for the most power and performance to be taken from the available powertrain. By comparison the 2014 Mazda MX-5 Miata has a 2.0-liter, inline four-cylinder engine that creates less than 160 horsepower. In all fairness, the MX-5 does post a quicker zero-to-60 mpg time than the Scion FR-S. That point is made moot by the fact that the FR-S gets better fuel-economy while offering significantly more power and the handling of the FR-S is enhanced by several racing inspired technologies.

The 2014 Scion FR-S becomes a better value for customers when all of the ancillary items are taken into consideration. Just like the rest of its Scion cousins, the FR-S can be highly customized with a large catalog of factory-approved aftermarket accessories. Furthermore, the 2014 Scion FR-S comes with the Scion Service Boost package that makes getting routine maintenance more convenient and affordable.
