2014 Scion FR-S vs. 2014 Toyota Prius c Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Prius c than the Scion FR-S, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Scion FR-S, drivers may find the Toyota Prius c a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Toyota Prius c requires fewer visits to 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 Scion FR-S is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius c. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Scion FR-S will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Prius c.

Dimensions
Since the Scion FR-S is much wider than the Toyota Prius c, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Scion FR-S, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Prius c.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Scion FR-S does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius c.

Handling
The Scion FR-S has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Prius c, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Scion FR-S has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius c. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Scion FR-S has less seating than the Toyota Prius c, making the Toyota Prius c the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The Scion FR-S comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Prius c.
