No minor changes so still glad I bought mine when I did! Curious to see this new shade of halo pearl though.

Tips still look too small. Too bad they couldn't add the JDM ones.

Steel looks pretty close to the 10 series colors. Nice color, it really grew on me over time, and now that color shifting from silver to blue to an almost battleship-ish grey is one of my favorites.

And at least the automatic price only went up 200 bucks.

2015 Scion FR-S Gets Re-Tuned Suspension, Appearance Updates, Price Drop

Quote:
The Scion FR-S is half of our favorite set of affordable new sports car twins, and for the 2015 model year, its getting just a bit better.

Already a compact bundle of fun, the 2015 FR-S gains a more rigid front suspension and re-tuned rear dampers for less body roll and more chassis-driver communication.

On the appearance front, the 2015 Scion FR-S gets a shark-fin antenna to replace the previous pole antenna and larger exhaust tips that fit more flush against the rear bumper. Inside the cabin, the new FR-S will get a new carbon fiber-look interior panel and automatic on-off headlights. A new Steel exterior color replaces the previous Argento, while the pearl white Halo ($395) replaces the previous Whiteout.

Best of all, despite the equipment and handling upgrades, the 2015 Scion FR-S starts out $355 cheaper than the 2014 model, with the base six-speed manual version starting at $24,900, and the six-speed auto starting from $26,000.

What do you want to bet that the suspension changes and re-tuning of the rear shocks makes the rear end stick better and harder to induce oversteer or drift?

That would be the end result of all the boyracer and drifter wannabees spinning off the roads and into curbs, trees, telephone poles, ditches, cliffs, etc.


I must be the only person that hates the looks of Shark Wart (Uh, I mean Fin) antennas. I like the rest of the updates on the 15 but if I were to buy one at some point down the road then I would have to revert the antenna back to the original base with a shorty style mast.

Thanks for posting this info. I was curious what the exhaust tips would look like, a huge improvement. I like them quite a bit actually. Also nice to see the new white on a twin.

If you want to see the colors just take a look at the new WRX they have the same white and Silver, BRZ will also be the same color just official Subaru color names instead of SCION names.

Also, I have the feeling, and this is just a hunch that the FRS suspension tuning is to make it more similar to the BRZ's suspension tuning which was different since launch.
