2014 Lexus CT 200h vs. 2014 Scion FR-S Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus CT 200h than the Scion FR-S. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Scion FR-S, the Lexus CT 200h may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Lexus CT 200h will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Scion FR-S, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Lexus CT 200h will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Scion FR-S, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Lexus CT 200h is much higher than that for the Scion FR-S.

Dimensions
The Lexus CT 200h is about the same width as the Scion FR-S. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus CT 200h, which is slightly longer than the Scion FR-S.

Drivetrain
The Lexus CT 200h has much less torque than the Scion FR-S, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus CT 200h has a smaller turning radius than the Scion FR-S, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus CT 200h is significantly less powerful than the Scion FR-S. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Lexus CT 200h offers greater seating capacity than the Scion FR-S, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus CT 200h than that of the Scion FR-S.
