2013 Scion FR-S: Another Nice Detail
September 13, 2012
Normally, I cringe at the sight of anything even remotely resembling faux carbon fiber. It doesn't look high tech, it just look low budget.
At first glance, I thought Scion might have gone down this route with the dash on the FR-S. But then I looked a little closer and realized that it's something a little different. Something that's actually kind of cool.
As you can see, the dash trim on the FR-S actually has more of engine-turned finish that gives it some depth without descending into the black hole of carbon fiber fakery. It's simple, yet effective and wholly unexpected in a car like this which is probably why I liked it.
