As of right now, we here at Magic Toyota have information on two Scion models available for 2015. The Scion tC and FR-S are part of the 2015 Scion Available Now in Edmonds and they are shaping up to be two amazing vehicles. Scion has released limited information on the two models but what we do know is that changes have been made to the popular FR-S. These changes include stiffer mounts for the front suspension that combined with the re-tuned rear shocks, results in a more communicative ride with less body roll than previous model years. Scion also says, “We’ve also made a few exterior changes for a more aggressive appearance. The standard antenna has been replaced by a sleek and aerodynamic shark-fin antenna, while larger exhaust tips poke out from underneath the rear bumper.”
Changes to the FR-S don’t stop there. As part of the 2015 Scion Available Now in Edmonds the new model year also sees changes inside the cabin. For instance, the dash panels have been updated with a carbon fiber appearance trim. Auto on/off headlamps have also been added. Although not much information on safety features of the new FR-S have been released, we can assume that many of the standard features on the 2014 model will carry over. Features such as vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-lock braking, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist, and a smart stop technology.
The tC has also been tweaked and tuned for the new year to enhance the sporty feel tC owners have come to love. It now features a six-speed automatic transmission with wheel mounted paddle shifters to give easy access to gear changes while keeping both hands on the steering wheel. Scion says, “The Dynamic Rev Management technology introduced in the 2014 Scion tC models will continue to be included, providing automatic throttle blipping for smoother, rev-matched downshifts.” Also new for 2015 on the tC are color option changes.-Classic Silver has been replaced with a new Cosmic Gray, while Super White has been replaced with a Blizzard Pearl. Other standard features we can guess will carry over to the 2015 model include air conditioning, power windows with driver-side auto up/down, power-door locks, remote keyless entry, engine immobilizer, rear window defogger, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, power outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators, and plenty more. Safety features should include the same features as the FR-S.
