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?
