2015 Scion FRS vs 2015 Subaru BRZ
While Subaru is not a branch of the Toyota Motor Corporation, the two companies do have a close relationship and often partner up to lend a helping hand and produce each other’s products as they both originate in Japan. Recently they decided to team up and collaborate on a sporty compact vehicle that would target young drivers. The collaboration resulted in the striking 2015 Scion FRS and Subaru BRZ models, and we decided to take a closer look at what is different between the two vehicles by comparing the 2015 Scion FRS vs 2015 Subaru BRZ.
Differences between the 2015 Scion FRS, Subaru BRZ
As you can tell by looking at the table above, the vehicles are virtually identical in terms of specifications. They match each other in horsepower, cargo capacity, passenger volume, fuel economy and many other areas, leaving the main differences between the two models as design and interior features. Glancing at the image at the top, you can tell that both vehicles are built on the same platform and follow the same base makeup, with a small fin on the hood and very similar taillamps.
But if you look closely you can see that the rear fascia and side panels are slightly different. The BRZ adopts a boxier aesthetic with sharper edges while the FRS leaves things a bit more curvy. The FRS also doesn’t have an external rear spoiler, but rather just rounds up the top of the trunk. Though you can’t see it in the image, they have slightly different front fascias as well, again with the FRS rounding its edges a bit more than the Subaru model. Other certain things are different like wheel and interior feature options, so these are the areas the decision comes down to in the end.
