9. Scion FRS $25,255

Scion_FRS_2013_005

The identical twin to the Subaru BRZ is just a few hundred dollars cheaper and has fewer features. It’s the perfect match for the driver looking for a fun-to-drive coupe over anything else. The Scion FR-S also has a tweaked suspension set up which makes it a bit more tail-happy than the Subaru, meaning there’s more than just the price to make it more attractive than its sister.

    Maybe it’s a generational thing, but imo coupes are definitely not always better looking than a comparable sedan.  If a car is designed first as a coupe, I think it can look great – take the Genesis coupe, or Camaro, or FR-S.  But where there could be rear doors, I think it looks awful to not put them.  Take the Civic coupe, Altima coupe, or even (hold your breath) an A5 coupe.  I can handle it on convertibles.  But if you want a coupe, buy a car that was designed as such.

    I’m curious what other people think.  (I need affirmation!)

  • huwtm

    That’s an extremely flawed view. All current coupes, even the ugly Genesis, are purpose designed. Sedan siblings may have similar nose treatments but usually that’s where it ends outside.  Interiors can some times in the dash be to close close to the sedans. 

  • MistyGreen

    Obviously they have a separate design, that’s not what I’m saying.  I just think that almost all coupes that have a sedan sibling don’t look as good as coupes without the concessions made to have a sedan version.

    The only compromise car in that group appears to be the Nissan. To Americanized, just plain ordinary.

  • Colum Wood

    It’s based on price.

    A white with black trim 1996-2000 Civic coupe looks the best

  • Curiousity

    So what is the Chevy car model that is advertised as if it is in the article?

    Hell ya koup takes #1! i know i picked righ

  • roundthings

    It’s the concept for the Chevy Tru 140r. I have no idea why it’s on this article. heck, they may never produce it. 

  • huwtm

    Yeah right – but they should build it. It’s probably the best looking car designed in the US of late. Though it does look Opel?

  • Lito

    Is the Cheapest, not the best…

  • SoYntGo4it

    Umm you for got about the Scion tC and GTI

  • Soynotgo4it

    All their vehicles look Opel What the heck are you talking about.

  • huwtm

    That is wrong actually. There is a very different look between US GM cars and Opels. Buick use Opels with that tacky American grill, but the rest Nothing like Opel.

  • The_C_a_t

    Coupes, not hatchbacks.

  • noname

    man. the day of the shelby charger, shadow es/CSX, neon rt, and srt4 were great. 26k is too much for a coupe.

  • cumshot

  • Bryan Carl

    Cheap if you’re a millionaire…………….
