As a new generation, there are some improvements added as the part of its cosmetic refinements. The company has a big plan to offer the redesign for both coupe and sedan. Those two cars might get turbo engines while hybrid will get all-wheel drive setup for 2017 FR-S.
2017 Scion FR-S Redesign
2017 Scion FR-S for sedan variant might be built under the body of FR-S coupe but there will be a difference. It will be built with the bigger dimension. It is mentioned by some unofficial sites that there it has 70 inches of larger size with the 55 inches higher and 187 inches longer than its sibling. It will be added in mid-sized sedan. The body design for its exterior is a bit like the styling of coupe especially for the front part. It is also possible to expect brand new styling cues that are borrowed from Subaru with the Cross Athletics Design Concept. This way hopefully could offer more exclusive features in 2017 Scion FR-S.
