“Rumors of a turbocharged all-wheel-drive Scion FR-S has sparked renewed interest in the roadster,” said Arthur Henry, senior manager of Kelley Blue Book Market Intelligence. “When the FR-S was released there were complaints that the rear-wheeled-drive coupe was underpowered.  Shoppers on KBB.com are searching through specs, news and reviews, and editorial content about the vehicle.  Benefiting from the increased traffic to the FR-S is the newly redesigned 2015 Volkswagen GTI.  The GTI appears as the second most compared vehicle to the FR-S following the Honda Civic coupe.”
