2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: Enfolded

July 26, 2012

I expected the Scion FR-S to be fast and fun. I didn't expect its seats to be a selling point. But they are.

The seats are in keeping with the car's sport purpose, of course, but they do the job with more style and attention to comfort than I had bargained for. The back provides a good fit, with a mild S-curve for basic but discernible lumbar support. The bolsters are firm and high, but don't pose barriers to entry or exit. The seat cloth has a bit of a nap meant to stick you to seat in turns. Even on a relatively sedate commute, though, that fabric grip adds to the sense of being cosseted in the cabin.

I came for sport. I got comfort. That's a nice bonus.
