2013 Scion FR-S: Styling Critique

July 18, 2012

In one the earlier posts, a reader asked when I might give the FR-S the ol' Photoshop treatment. Here's the problem: I wouldn't change much.

Overall, the FR-S styling pleases me. It's a clean and compact basic form. It's not overdone, and with only a few exceptions, there aren't any superfluous accents that concern me. The design also doesn't seem as though it's trying too hard – it's not trying to be anything it isn't. It's genuine.

If I were to change anything, it'd be to eliminate the badge on the side and blend that panel into the quarter panel. I'm also curious to see what a blacked-out A-pillar would do for it. I like the wraparound look for windshields.

What do you think? Would you change anything?
