AutoGuide.com is proud to announce that the winner of its first ever Car of the Year award is the Scion FR-S.

“We are honored that AutoGuide.com selected the FR-S as its first Car of the Year recipient and recognized the unmatched driving experience,” said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha.

“A sports car should be agile, well-balanced, responsive and intuitive, responding to driver inputs,” says AutoGuide.com Editor in Chief Colum Wood. “The FR-S takes these qualities to an impressive level and flatters the driver, making almost anyone look and feel like a professional behind the wheel.”

Not only that, but the FR-S does so at a very attractive price. “For $24,200 the FR-S doesn’t just live up to the hype, it exceeds it,” says Wood.

“We are honored that AutoGuide.com selected the FR-S as its first Car of the Year recipient and recognized the unmatched driving experience,” said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha. “The FR-S showcases the fun we want Scion drivers to have each and every time they get behind the wheel.”

Powered by a 2.0-liter Boxer 4-cylinder engine making 200 hp, the FR-S delivers performance and fun though light weight, balance and a low center of gravity, allowing for driving dynamics unmatched in its class.
