2015 brings the biggest changes to the Scion FR-S since the car launched in 2013. In addition to the FR-S Release Series 1.0, which went on sale recently, the 2015 FR-S gets an upgraded suspension. Changes have been made to recalibrate the FR-S’ springs, struts, shocks and bushings for a more tight feel.
Automobile Mag took the 2015 FR-S to a track to see how these suspension tweaks affected the sports car’s handling at the limits. The FR-S’ tendency to get sideways has been dialed back, and it seems as though Scion has split the difference between the original FR-S’ tail-happy suspension and the Subaru BRZ’s more conservative understeering setup. The end result seems to be the fastest option of the three, and as a bonus, it rides even better than the alternatives.
