It looks good but when you start talking about performancr it's not that good.It's a V6 with 200HP wich is nothing special.I drove my friend Scion last month and it's feels damn weak.If you're someone that cares about performance you will be dissapointed.

first off, William, youre an idiot, the frs has never come with a v6, its had a flat 4/h4 since it was created. the frs/brz is one of the best handling cars you can buy today, its basically a miata with a stiffer suspension, more power and better looks. ill admit that 200hp really isnt much, but its still a great car with some pretty reasonable gas mileage.

The Scion FRS/Subaru BRZ is an ok compact sports car.































Sure it has great handling, but so do many cars. In fact, I don't see much to recommend one over an older Acura RSX-S.































For roughly the same amount of money, you could get a V6 Mustang or a Hyundai Genesis coupe R-spec, both of which posted better lap times per MotorTrend, Road and Track, and Car and Driver.

If you just want something small and sporty with a good feel, sure the FRS/BRZ is a good car, with a strong engine that Subaru is known for. But if you want something that is actually capable of some speed, you should look elsewhere.

It all depends on what you consider a "good car." For example, I have never considered a Ford F150 a "good" vehicle for a teenager.

****ing balls to the walls yes!! And if your bitching about the power, which I admit is slow stock but enough fun to go sideways, then get either a true cold air intake or drop in filter and some good performance headers with exhaust and tune it. That's what I did. Just waiting on headers to arrive.
