2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: I Expected More

June 26, 2012


While the Scion FR-S exceeded my expectation in regard to driving dynamics, I was a little surprised how small the trunk was.

Seven cubic feet. That's it. But before the commenters accuse me of not grasping the fact that this is a "drivers" car, I will say that it has plenty of space for track-day gear. My old track car only had four cubic feet and fit a mini floor jack, my toolbox, helmet, tire inflator and other junk. My snacks and drinks had to go in the passenger seat or else they'd get roasted in the trunk.

But let's say you need to haul bigger items. If this is your only car, you'll probably have to call a friend or rent something bigger (I had to do that on numerous occasions). Still, it's a small price to pay for so much on-road entertainment.
