2013 Scion FR-S: A Proper Tachometer

April 17, 2013

2013 Scion FR-S

Maybe it was because I had spent most of the week driving mid-size sedans. But when I sat down in our 2013 Scion FR-S and fired it up for the drive home, I realized, yeah, this is how it's supposed to be.

What was I talking about?

The Scion's large tachometer, situated dead smack in the middle of the instrument panel. Where it belongs. Oh, and the easy-to-read digital speedometer. I like that, too.

This is exactly the setup you want in a proper sports car.
