Toyota is adding some upgrades to the Scion FR-S for the 2015 model year, which will bump the base price up by $200 to $25,655.

To help improve handling, Scion is installing a more rigid front suspension and re-tuning the rear shock absorbers to reduce body roll and increase the responsiveness of the car. A shark fin antenna has been added to improve aerodynamics and the exhaust tips are now larger and are more flush with the rear bumper.

On the inside, a new dashboard panel with a carbon fiber look has been added along with a new key design and automatic headlights.

Despite complaints about lack of power, the engine is still a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine 200 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque.

Pricing for the FR-S starts at $25,655 including destination, which gets you a manual transmission model. Bumping up to the automatic brings the price to $26,755.

    “Bumping up to the automatic brings the price to $26,755.” (But why would you want to do that?)

    Oh look, it’s a pair of manual transmission elitists…….

    Insecure people will keep on being insecure.

    I’m not an elitist. I just like manuals. And I’m tired of seeing them disappear. It’s sad.

  • Beau Steward

    “Bumping *down* to the automatic brings the price to $26,755.”

    Keep trolling buddy…..

    There aren’t enough of you to justify offering it. That’s business (sorry). And yes, you putting down people who buy automatics DOES make you an elitist.
