Scion has recently announced a price increase for the 2014 FR-S in the United States, where the cheapest model will set you back for 24, 600 USD.

According to the car manufacturer, the 2014 Scion FR-S is now available to its future customers from 24,600 USD, plus 755 USD delivery charge, while its sister car, the 2014 Subaru BRZ, costs 25,595 USD. The Subaru version is still more expensive but it’s also coming with more equipment. The 2014 Scion FR-S is getting some knee pads on the transmission tunnel and the door panels, standard 6.1-inch touch screen audio system and some other tweaks, which should make the model more appealing to its future customers.

The 2014 Scion FR-S is still powered by a 2.0 liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder Boxer engine, made by Subaru and equipped with Toyota’s D-4S direct injection system, which is producing a total output of 200 HP, at 7,000 rpm, and a peak torque of 151 lb-ft, available at 6,600 rpm. The unit can be mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, depending on the version chosen, which is sending power to the rear-wheel drive.
