2015 Scion FRS vs 2015 Hyundai Genesis
Arguably the most exhilarating vehicle on the Scion lineup, the Scion FRS is a breath of fresh air. It might not have the most powerful engine, or the most performance-enhancing features, but what it does do is its job, and it does that with flying colors. What is its job? To look like a legitimate racecar while remaining affordable to the young drivers Scion vehicles are built for. We wanted to take a look at the Scion sports car in comparison with another sporty vehicle to weigh the pros and cons, so we researched the 2015 Scion FRS vs 2015 Hyundai Genesis.
Advantages of the Scion FRS
The Scion FRS can certainly perform, it wouldnt be considered a sports car if it couldnt. But the table above makes it pretty obvious that the Hyundai Genesis has quite a bit more power. But if youre willing to sacrifice that power, then the Scion FRS is the smarter choice simply because of how much money it will save you. Not only is its starting price nearly $15,000 less than the Hyundai Genesis but it will also continuously save you money at the gas pump as well.
Just look at the fuel economy ratings from the table. Through city streets alone, the FRS utilizes 5L less fuel than the Hyundai Genesis, and when cruising on the highway it takes nearly 3L less. Of course, a big part of that is thanks to the extra power packed into the Genesis: bigger engine, more fuel. Both vehicles are packed with fantastic features, so what this really comes down to is whether youd rather save a ton of money, or have a vehicle that packs a much bigger punch. The decision is in your hands, but you know who to call once youve made it.
